We lived in Washington State until our kids were aged around 12 down to 6. In those days (before all the birthdays were combined into one President's Day), February 22 was celebrated as Washington's Birthday -- both our first President's and the State's, because it was the date Washington was admitted to the Union.
FEBRUARY 22 is also our daughter's birthday!
One year on her birthday -- she was about four or five -- I heard her tell her brothers, in all seriousness: "They fly flags on MY birthday. But not on yours." Well yes. You can't argue with the truth. I don't know if they still fly flags on this date in Washington, but we still always think about flags flying on this red-letter day!
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Cyndi. (It's the big _0 one).
May banners fly high on your birthday and all year long -- because you deserve it -- and may all your wishes come true.
