A Florida Rainbow Appeared When Michael was Born

Tampa Florida is his birthplace.

You’ve seen him sport the orange and blue in the scarlet and gray Buckeye Country.

Michael Joseph is 9- August 21st.  

Last single digit birthday. An avid Lego® builder, likes to play chess and is a good swimmer in the pool. 

Happy Happy Birthday Michael.  

love, your Grandma

    • Thanks Stef. The kids enjoy their personalized blog posts on their birthday. It is a good way for us to connect long-distance, too.
