Happy Birthday to My Daughter!

Tomorrow is my daughter's 19th birthday. This picture is taken from a vacation trip in 1998 when she was three.

We were on our way to Galveston and had stopped to visit an old warship on the way with a cannon. I remember her wearing this little red sundress, her cheeks blushed from the heat of the sun, and she then climbed up on top of that cannon and posed for her picture! LOL! She was a little camera ham even back then!

We had a lot of fun on that trip. She was three and her brother was five. They started a long-held family tradition on that vacation trip, something they referred to as "candy in the bed." Every time we went on a trip and stayed at a hotel, they jumped on the bed, (something they were not allowed to do at home). We bought them bags of chocolate candy and they sat in the middle of the bed and ate it. So from that trip, came the long-held vacation tradition of candy in the bed...

My daughter has grown up to be a beautiful young lady, both inside and out and I am very proud of her!

Happy birthday my darling and beautiful daughter!

She is a little sweetheart. Give our best wishes to her as well. They do grow up quickly don't they. Sometimes, I wish that they would just slow down!
