Happy Birthday Jessica! Celebrating My Daughter’s Terrific Life!

Happy Birthday Jessica

Happy happy birthday to my daughter Jessica – shown in a number of happy pictures above! There she is with her terrific brother Jeff on the left…and Alex and my great son-in-law Mike on the right…of course, that middle shot shows what a great Mom she is with Sydney and Luke!

I also love this airborne shot, since nothing can hold her back – and she’s fearless too!

I shared this story of our impromptu getaway to Cabo San Lucas a couple of years ago, pre-pandemic – it was Jessica’s terrific idea – and we went snorkeling and came across a pod of whales literally right in front of us!

You can see more of that adventure, including video of our encounter with ravenous piranha fish, by clicking on my story here:

Happy birthday Jessica!!!!! We all love you so much and are so proud of the life you have created – especially with those two REAL Japanese Sumos!
