Happy Birthday Daddy

You know how when an important holiday falls on a day mid-week it often gets shifted to a Monday to make a long weekend? Like Memorial Day, May 30th... or, really, a convenient Monday, late in May. Memorial Day Observed.

Well, in our house, birthday's are just as important - or more so - than major holidays. So you have your actual birthday, and then you have your birthday observed.

Today, then, is Kerry's Birthday Observed.

Tate, knowing Kerry's love for ships, produced this:

The H.M.S. Victory

Be sure to look for some "extras" he included - the crystal skull (Indiana Jones), Darth Vader (Star Wars), El Guapo (The Three Amigos), and a rogue Redcoat.


(Yes, I know the resolution isn't good enough to see those kinds of details, I just wanted to share what Tate included.)

I love the birthday observed idea! Tate is quite the artist- that kid is definitely talented!

"Your birthday observed" really came about because it's a lot easier to get together on a weekend... or a vacation!

I'm thrilled with what Tate put into that picture. He's not exactly usually known for his neatness - especially in handwriting. *sigh*

Happy belated birthday Kerry!

Tate did an awesome job on that drawing for him!
