Barry's Birthday

I love surprising people with just the right gift. With how much Barry loves (LOL) having his birthday as he gets older, it is makes it even more satisfying. We celebrated Barry's 3_th birthday last week. We had a small celebration with just his parents and ate his favorite pie, Marie Calendar's Coconut Cream. For Owen's enjoyment, I put some candles on it and let Owen blow them out after Barry. Owen is big into birthdays this year.

Now for the story behind his gift... In November, Barry went with his brother David to Portland, Oregon to see a Duke BB game. Duke has been Barry's favorite NCAA basketball team for a long time. He holds Coach K in very high regard. Anyway, Duke doesn't usually play this far west so it was once in a lifetime opportunity to see them play and see Coach K.

With our anniversary, Barry's birthday, and Father's Day in consectutive weeks, I usually get a big combined gift. So for his present I had his ticket, program, picture, and the Duke logo custom framed. He was speechless after he opened it.

Happy Anniversary, Birthday, and Father's Day honey!
