In a previous post about my Special Valentine I did not post any pictures of my son because the scanner was down (it still is...arghh!) and since he has lived out of town for several years I didn't have any recent pictures of him. We had his birthday party last Saturday and I finally got some pictures! It was so much fun spending this special time with family and my son's friends. My son has always had the most amazing friends and they all have been close for many years. I kept thinking that I knew these adults when they were just wee ones. They are now in their late twenties and early thirties (insert feeling old here).
Kevin has been trying to get into law enforcement for the last two years. Since most counties have been cutting back he has not had any luck. A couple of years ago he was two weeks away from his final interview for the San Diego County Sheriff's Deptartment when they had major budget cuts. I felt SO bad for him because I cannot even begin to tell you how hard he had to work to get that far. It was many months of hard work. But as a Mom deep down I was relieved. It is getting so dangerous for our law enforcment anymore.
Here is my handsome 30 year old son, Kevin
This cutie patootie is Shauna, my son's girlfriend. They have known each other since 7th grade! And yes, she is as sweet as she looks. She and Kevin are two peas in a pod. I hope I will soon be posting about a wedding. So is Shauna (wink, wink)
I couldn't resist orderding these cupcakes and I didn't tell Kevin because I was sure he would have tried to talk me out them (a Mom has to do what a Mom has to do). Even though I ordered them after Valentine's day they still had these heart rings. He was with me when I picked them up and I was bracing for the "OH MOM" comments but he said, "OH COOL!" (insert a shocked look on Mom's face here)
YES, he is all grown up and Mom is a little weepy at the moment.
xoxo to my wonderful and sweet friends, Sue
