ken came home early from work today and we went to seabee park and released balloons for matthew's 2nd birthday. it was freezing outside but kennedy was a trooper. the naval academy and chesapeake bay are in the background of the pictures. afterwards we went to pick up take out texas bbq brisket and i made some rudy's corn (if you don't know what this is, you are missing out!) the texas meal made me feel like i was in texas, which is where i wish i was today. i wish i had had the opportunity to visit matthew's grave but i'm so thankful for my friend diane who went there for us. after dinner we had some of matthew's ice cream cake and it was yummy! happy 2nd birthday sweet son!! we love you so much. love, mommy, daddy, and your little sister.
