Happy 12th Birthday, Jacob!

Tomorrow is Jacob's 12th birthday. Yes, twelve years ago God blessed us with our second son and third child.  It seems like just yesterday that I wrote last year's birthday post for him.  Time sure flies!

We celebrated a little early with a trip to a Ranger's game - at Jacob's request.  We'll have a family party Saturday evening...after Little League games.

The picture above shows Jacob with his extra-large baseball (found at Academy).  He got Rangers' manager, Ron Washington's autograph.  Unfortunately, he didn't get anyone else's that night...maybe next time.
As part of the celebration, we toured the stadium.  It was really fun for the kids and fairly inexpensive, too.  
Here Jacob is sitting at the press room table.  This is where players/coaches are interviewed after games.
This picture is the Ranger's dug out.  The kids thought it was neat to see the spit out sunflower seed hulls on the field.  They wanted to get them and sell them on eBay.  Joe and I didn't let them!  YUCK! (Although, they would've probably sold.)

All four kiddos sitting on the dugout bench.
For lunch before the evening game, we headed to Pappasitos in Arlington.  It's our favorite Mexican food place! 

For Jacob's family birthday, it's his favorite American food - hamburgers and hot dogs.  Instead of a traditional birthday cake, Jacob requested Strawberries and Cream Twinkie Cake.  (You can find that recipe here on our family recipe blog.)

We love you, Jacob, and wish you a very Happy Birthday!
