Happy Birthday!!!!

he got second place out of all the 2nd grade boys.
notice there are no kids behind them.
they both started out so fast that they left everyone else behind.
there would have been one more kid right there with them
he was on the sidelines not feeling well
3 laps around,  both of them sticking close together.
the red skirt in the background is our neighbor lady
she said she would buy him a cake if he got first place.
UPDATE!!!!  He got half a cake!!!!!!  She and her mother ate the other half!!!!

    Happy Birthday, little man! We hope it was a good one. But, since there were good friends, chocolate and cake, one can only assume that it couldn’t be anything but “good”!!!
