Happy Birthday Aunt Kippy! I remember the days when wed be hangin out at the Cape, celebrating your birthday and waving sparklers around like madkids on the beach. I hope your birthday this year is remniscent of birthdays and good years past and promises many great birthdays to come, as well.

Today, Im off to hang in Hermosa, which is weird because for the last couple of years, its been a “guys hangin in Hermosa” day, and this year Im more sort of tagging along with other peoples friends, but at least Im maintaining the tradition. I hope it turns out to be as much fun this year as it has other years despite the change of cast. Casey and Emily are going, so thatll be cool.

Anyway, happy 4th, and happy birthday, Aunt Kip!
