Happy birthday, Grandcub!

Yesterday was Daniel's Fourth Birthday. Deanne arrived today at their house in Overland Park to spend the weekend. I had bought him a pirate t-shirt from Sea Base. Anna e-mailed me this picture of him in it. Normally he's a photobomber extraordinaire, but tonight, he's uncharacteristically reluctant to get his picture taken. Anyway, Anna and Deanne say he's been dancing around, singing "A Professional Pirate" from Muppet Treasure Island.

That's my boy.

Anna says in her e-mail, "Daniel couldn't wait to put on the shirt, but he wasn't happy about having to pose for a picture."
