Lucky number 36

As I've grown older, and had two children, birthdays have taken on a whole new light. Nowadays, I'm much more excited about the look on my son's face when we sing him Happy Birthday than I am to wake up and realize I'm now closer to 40 than 30. But, I've also learned from my wife to take a day for myself, relax and enjoy getting older. So, tomorrow I'm taking the day off to hang out, play some golf and hopefully just enjoy a day to myself.

I've actually had quite a busy birthday day today--we traveled back from Wisconsin this morning at our Sherry family reunion. For you single readers out there, if you're ever in need of some good birth control, just take a three-hour car ride with us sometime--my parents, mother-in-law and brother know what I'm talking about. Regardless, we had a great time visiting the waterpark in Black River Falls yesterday and chatting with the Sherry klan. We also found our hotel had a special waterpark just for kids, complete with a mini slide and wading pool. Matthew must have went down that slide about 50 times last night. I'll hopefully post some video from the experience later in the week.
