Happy Belated Birthday Z

My oldest baby turned a quarter of a century years old on June 11. 25! Yikes! That one hit Momma really hard! He is still my baby boy!
We had a wonderful day together...I had my whole family together! It was a great day of cooking, grilling, talking, fishing, etc.
Zachary Benami was the cutest little tow headed boy! A person with very light (almost white) blond hair, "tow" being flax or hemp fibers. Tow-headed, along with fair(-haired) and flaxen-haired, is a tradional way in the English language to refer to blond hair or lightly-colored hair, having come from its old Germanic roots (which are quite rare). He had more spunk than his Momma and Daddy could keep up with. He has a will to get something done and never seemed to like to be told that he "couldn't". He always found a way. He is still like that today. His determination has provided success for him in many ways. He is first and foremost a Christian, but also a hunter, fisherman, country boy, electrician, KS State Champion Pole Vaulter, and currently trains race horses. He is the best son a Momma could ask for. 

 Happy Birthday son...We love you very much!

Proverbs - Chapter 22:6
  Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.

Psalm - Chapter 127:3
Sons are a heritage from the Lord, children a reward from him.

What a handsome son. I can remember when each of my kids turned 25 I would tell them when asked their age to say they were a quarter of a century old and lived on the third planet from the sun.:)
