Today was one of the few warm summer days we have had this summer and thankfully it happened on the day that we were celebrating Courtney's birthday.
17 years ago it was one of the hottest summers I can remember. Perhaps it was because I was feeling like a beached whale, swimming around the pool on a regular basis with my equally large and pregnant best friend, or maybe it was just plain hot.
I can still see the horrified look on my son's face as my friend was going to sit herself in his inner tube. "Hey....you are going to BUST my tube" were is exact words. Let me tell you, those were not well received words by an 8 month pregnant woman....haha!
As a baby Courtney was the happiest kid ever.. Each and every morning, she would greet us with a smile that was pure sunshine.
As Courtney is maturing into a lovely young woman, her smile is as radiant today as it was when she was young.
.....HAPPY BIRTHDAY Courtney!!!
