Happy Birthday Ben

26 years ago, this handsome little guy was born:

Then this happened:

And before he knew it, he was a dad:

After a (very short) time, his mini-me arrived:

And he had to learn to juggle two at a time:

He’s pretty good at it too:

In fact, he’s pretty good at everything he tries:

So, three days ago, Ben had his 26th birthday, and now my handsome guy looks like this:

Happy birthday Ben!

I love that silly picture of you and the one of mini Lily on his shoulders is one of the cutest things I've ever seen!
