I wasn’t a huge fan of cake, so mom made me these amazing frozen mint pies with Oreo cookie crusts.

I also received a speedometer for my bike:

 

Three decades later, I spent a good chunk of my birthday playing a 1980s-era video game (Gauntlet) with my brothers, and the evening with my immediate family – having pie.

Happy Birthday, Kelsey.

Fourteen years ago – specifically, just after 4 p.m. EDT and immediately following a Harrison Ford interview airing on the in-room hospital television – I became a dad.

First trip to the Pacific Ocean, summer 2010.

And just about every day now I experience a moment or two of that amazement and pride and wonder – regularly spiced with a bit of bizarre humor and light sarcasm – which Kelsey brings to our lives. (Also, if she wasn’t around, our Rock Band-ing would be severely lacking in the drums department.)

So if you happen to see her today, feel free to wish her a Happy Birthday, and tell her I said Thank You.
