Happy 18th Birthday Bilbo!

So, eighteen years have passed since the beginning of this millennium, and today it’s time to say Happy Birthday Bilbo once again. Considering it’s been eighteen years and eighteen birthdays, the number of photos attached to this post is probably an extremely small amount of all the photos Dad has taken!

For those that were there, these pictures may tell a better story than I can tell with words. For those who weren’t, you’ll have another go at it for my next eighteen years. Game on! 🙂

And no 18th birthday wishes for Bilbo would be complete without some proper Tolkien!

All that is gold does not glitter,
 Not all those who wander are lost;
 The old that is strong does not wither,
 Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
 A light from the shadows shall spring;
 Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
 The crownless again shall be king.

And … uh-oh … I guess this means I’m now a grown-up … sort of! 😉

Note from Dad:

I love you to bits and I couldn’t think of a better person as my company. I’m proud to be your father and I’m proud of what you have accomplished and the person you have become thus far.

Stay frosty … I’ll be here for you.

Always.

Let’s do this <3 <3 <3
