Wilson's 15th birthday fell on a Wednesday so I didn't want to disrupt the Wordless Wednesday with anything but a photo. But of course, there was a lot to that day worthy of pictures!

The weirdest thing about the day was that I got called for jury duty. You never know if you will actually sit for a trial or not. You still have to go, wait it out, and see how it goes. Being the chronically on time person I am, I arrived at about 7:20 for an 8 o'clock schedule. Some other folks mosied in as late as 8:30. My half of the alphabet all waited around until 11:30 when we were told we would not be needed. I was SO thankful as that meant I would not miss the full day at home with Wilson!

It was lunch time when I got home. It was a very nice day so we grilled hot dogs for lunch. What dog doesn't want hot dogs for their special day?!

And of course there was cake!

And even a picture of me that I actually almost like! It was a must to be photographed with the birthday boy!

I am so grateful Wilson was still here for his 15th birthday. His kidney failure diagnosis last September really cast doubt on that!  But Cardigans are fighters, and Wilson wasn't ready to go just yet. Yay for that!

We will finish up with the birthday hat shot....this exact little cardboard hat goes all the way back to my very first Cardigan Dylan. We can't skip this tradition! Obviously, Wilson wishes we did!
