Happy birthday, punkin!!!!!

14 years ago I was blessed even more than I was at the time with a small bundle of joy that completely changed my life. My little punkin — thanks for being you: a talented, beautiful, godly young lady. I am proud to be your Dad.

And to celebrate, we made the pilgrimage to the only Jamba Juice in Kentucky…..in Lexington. There we had a liquid lunch and walked a bit through the UK campus. On the way home we spiced it up a bit and made a spontaneous stop at the wiener dog races. The official name was the “Dachshund Derby” but wiener dog races is funnier. Plus, how often do you get to see wiener dogs race? The whole thing cracked me up and we laughed as the little hot dog-like canines with Vienna sausage legs flailing about ran around in not-so-straight lines.

The remainder of the evening was spent with good food, good conversation, great family friends, and fireflies.

Happy birthday, punkin!!!!! Thanks for being one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I love you!

…..Dad
