Amy threw a wonderful 40th birthday for Matt at a Ballard neighborhood eatery called The Pantry. More on the dining experience in a separate post.
Friends and family gathered round, and it was a really happy evening. I recall my mother saying at one point that while she didn’t feel old, she certainly had old children. Having my baby hit 40 certainly is a milestone — a good one, though. Jerry was there in spirit. He would be, and I am, very proud of the man Matt has become.
Happy birthday, tootsie. 🙂
