Happy Birthday, Mike!

Today is my stepdad, Mike's 60th Birthday. He passed away almost 7 years ago and is very much missed, but we still try to celebrate his life.

Mike and I on Goofy's Barnstormer at Magic Kingdom.

Trev, Mom, Mike, and my cousin Ben at Gulf Shores.

When my mom and Mike first married, we got this super tall tree. There wasn't any room for the star. So, Mike got a piece of cardboard, cut out a star, and covered it with tinfoil. We put it up where it would fit and have used the star every year since. Here, Trev and Mike are putting up the star.

Trevor's 1st Birthday! Mike's 42nd birthday was 12/27/92...... Trevor was born 12/31/92..... This was 1993.

Today, on what would be his dad's 60th birthday, Trevor got his first tatoo..... his dad's initials.....

It's kind of a funny story..... for years, my brother has been tormenting my mom, telling her he was going to go out and get a tatoo on his 18th birthday. My mom would freak out.

Then, as his birthday was coming up and my mom asked what he wanted, he said one thing...... a tatoo of Mike's initials on Mike's birthday (which is 4 days before he's legal). My mom agreed to sign for it, lol.

I'm sure Mike has the biggest smile on his face right now as his life is being celebrated by the people he loves. How sweet of Trevor to get a tattoo in honor of his father (and I love that your mom signed for it!).
