Anthony Turns Five

Anthony turned five years old today.

Like last year, he picked out his own present. This year it was a little train set...

“Happy Birthday Anthony”

In the picture above, I like the perspective of the candles and how they rise out of the focus into the blur.

Now that they're out, the candles are just impediments to CAKE

There were lots more silly times and more presents, but we'll save those for another post or two....

Very cool, thanks Nils. Fumie and Anthony were just talking about Dr. Yellow today, but I don’t think they’d ever seen it, so this is very timely. Thanks! —Jeffrey
