Today is the birthday of our youngest - our awesome son, Mike. We had a little pre-birthday dinner last night at our favorite "local Mexican" restaurant, El Toro Viejo. It was fun to have Grandpa and Grandma with us. Mike especially loved wearing the sombrero while the waiters sang a lively rendition of Happy Birthday.

Mike is a great guitar player and singer. In this picture, he and his friend Tom Williams are practicing for their performance last week at a cool little yogurt shop in town. They sounded really good and the crowd love the music. More performance photos below.

Probably one of my favorite things about Mike is his laugh. He laughs at everything and you can hear his laugh echoing through the house. He's nice and kind and loves his family and friends. He is a good student, is fluent in Japanese, and can do anything on the computer. He's easy-going and calm, and he's very tidy. His room and bathroom are pretty-much clean. He always seems to enjoy what is going on around him at that moment. People tell him he looks like his dad, although we don't see it. He is like Scott in that he forgets to eat - something I have never been able to understand. I'm going to quit now and go bake him a birthday cake!
