Tia's Long Distance Birthday

It's official.  Tia is no longer a teenager.  She celebrated her birthday on April 6th in Cedar City without us.  Fortunately she has Trisa and a bunch of friends there to help make her day special.  Apparently a good group of friends, including Trisa (who took time off work to go) went with Tia to Denny's at 7:00 a.m. for breakfast, and then back to the apartment for present opening.  Trisa and Travis got Tia a real baby turtle that she named Gonzo.  Tia was super excited about it.  Trisa had to go to work after that, but the friends headed to the "twirly park".  Tia called us at 9:00 in the morning and was having a great day so far.

She told me that one friend made her Strawberry Delight for her birthday (this is a cake that is Tia's favorite), another friend made her dessert too.   Besides sending presents, and providing her with a big sister to help her have a good day, we called that evening and sang to her.

Tia is a good daughter.  I'm so proud of her!  She is a cosmetologist, and goes to college, but what I like best about Tia is how she treats her little brothers, and how well she loves her family.  I'm so thankful to have her in our family to help us smile, and to set a good example of someone who really wants to choose the right.

So, I hope Tia had a super happy birthday, and I really hope that she knows that she is loved every single day of the year.
Tia, Trisa, and their friend Amy
