An Early Birthday Suprise

My amazing and wonderful wife Rachel, along with our children suprised me with an early birthday dinner this evening. I was treated to a wonderful meal of Southern Fried Chicken, garlic mashed potatoes, gravy, Caeser salad, and apple pie a la mode. Who knows what is in store for tomorrow when the big day actually arrives. I don’t think anything could top this evening. (though I am secretly hoping for permission to buy a motorbike).

Almost seems like home, sans air conditioning.
