What is Significant about David’s 35th Birthday

I asked David to write a blog post about his birthday experience. Well, after work, family time, rest and some entertainment, David does not have time left. So here it is.

David always remembers Micah, his best friend, on his birthday. He learned about Micah’s passing when we were in Seattle on his 30th birthday on Facebook, a manner which did not provide opportunities for a proper farewell and closure. So on each of his birthday, he asks himself Why Micah had to die.

On the day of his 35th birthday this year, David was contemplative, pondering on life and what it means to grow older. We hope that his contemplation means that he is not only older but also wiser. Only kidding!

It was hard for us both to believe at first that we will be turning 35 this year. But of course, we are now parents of two growing boys. Because we wanted the boys to have fun on Daddy’s birthday, we took them to Chuck E Cheese. We were so glad that Grammie was able to join us.

On a birthday celebration streak, that Friday evening we went to see the musical Guys and Dolls at the Opera Theater. Thank you Grammie for helping with Jacob and James that evening.

We were lucky to be given free tickets by the Milwards from church. We saw a few people from church there and had such a nice time. We even made friends with a budding artist at the coat room.

Another significant thing about David’s birthday this year is that he finally acquired a banjo and is learning to play it in earnest. We couldn’t be happier for him and all of us when we enjoy hearing David play every day. James is overjoyed every time a tune comes on and would always dance to it.

Fun, fun time.
