Tyler's 24

When our son Tyler was born 24 years ago, his first outing was to church Easter Sunday. He was 1 week old and his 7 year old brother Shawn was being baptized. It rained like crazy that Easter morning. Which might explain Tyler's love of rain and his plans to move to a part of the country where it rains a lot. ha!

Not sure if his plans will come to fruition, but I was aware that this birthday needed to be extra special. So we had a family picnic at Kiwanis Park a few days before his birthday ~ pizza, veggies, chips and angel food cake with strawberries & raspberries on top. And Cool Whip!

Saturday morning we took Tyler to Chompies for his free breakfast. By far the best birthday breakfast deal in town. And mighty good too!

But the best birthday meal is Joe's Farm Grill in Gilbert. Oh my gosh, the best food and ambiance! And they deduct $10.00 off your bill on your birthday. Can't beat that with a stick.

Joe's Farm Grill is located in Agritopia ~ acres and acres of lush green orchards and gardens.

A little slice of heaven in the middle of the 6th largest city in the country.

The grapevine buds had just popped open and they were stunning.

So thankful to have had time with our son, to hear his heart and longing to live out his life to the fullest. Praying he will trust God in this next season. And just go for it!
