Fourteen Years Ago...

our first grandchild was born.

I was honored to attend his birth.  When invited by the doctor to actual watch him enter this world, I declined by saying, you take care of that end and I will take care of this end...but I was in the room,  holding my daughter's hand.

Andrew has grown, so have we and so has our family.  It is hard to believe fourteen years have passed and I now have three grandsons and the oldest is legally able to drive...with an adult present!

Happy Birthday, Andrew!!!   We are all very proud of the young man you have become.

Happy Birthday Andrew.
I too was honored to attend my grands births. Lucky woman us.
And I love the new look as well. I've wanted to work on mine too but I get distracted reading others instead. Oops. Be well, Linda

Happy Birthday, Andrew!
You mean you are allowed out on the road (with an adult) when you are 14? We are not allowed to drive here(UK) until 17.

He's a keeper, that's for sure. Happy Birthday to Andrew!

What do you mean, he's old enough to drive? You mean he's old enough to marry also? And drink beer?

Congratulations with your birthday, Andrew! Hope you have a happy one.
