Birthday Party

My sons, Nick and Rob, were both born on June 12, as was their paternal great-grandfather, TNT (Terrible Nick Temple). Rob and Nick aren’t twins: Nick was born in Wurzburg, Germany in 1971; Rob was born in Louisville, Kentucky, in 1975.

In the past 12 or so years, my sons have lived in places far from one another: Nick has lived in California and Oklahoma; Rob has lived in Texas, Utah, and New Mexico. Today was the first time in more than a decade that they have celebrated their birthday together.

Below, without comments, are photographs of today’s birthday party that was held at Nick’s house in Louisville, where both Nick and Rob now live since Rob’s arrival last Thursday. The last image is a slightly altered version of the birthday cards I created for my sons.
Note: There are more images that Blogger would not allow me to uplod with this post. I shall upload those next week.


  1. How wonderful to have both of your boys here to celebrate their birthdays. You all look so happy. :)

  2. Looks like it was a fun party. Happy birthday to your sons.

  5. Hi Nick ~~ You have a couple of great looking sons and you look so happy, and the boys looky happy as well.
    Lovely tosee you all together for
    their birthdays. Cheers, Merle.

  6. Awwww, that is so wonderful. You three boys look great together.


  7. That's the happiest I've ever seen you look!

    Have you considered opening an account with Flickr ? It's free, and it might be better suited to events like this.

  8. ABBY: Yes, it was a fun party, especially since this was the first time in about 12 or so years that my sons celebrated their birthday together.

    YUM: Yep! Of course, you never saw ME at their age.

    MICHELLE: Thanks. I still have some more photos of the party to post that Blogger wouldn’t let me put up. Maybe I’ll do that on Wednesday.

    MERLE: Thank you. It was great for the 3 of us to be together again. I foresee a great summer coming up.

    JDs ROSE: Thanks. A friend who saw those pics commented on the resemblance between the 3 of us. Actually, I don’t see it.

    THOMAS: Wow! You hit it on the head! I always seem to be happier when my sons are with me. I have an account with something—not Flickr—but haven’t used it since Blogger allowed me to upload straight from my computer.

  9. Happy Birthday to your "boys"!!! And how great that they got to celebrate together finally. That makes getting older bearable sometimes!! :)

  10. Nick, I love the picture of you three you all look so happy. Wonderful to have both close by again!
