If you are asking yourself why I picked this picture for Ian's birthday post, then chances are that you don't know him very well. Not only does Ian like Superman a lot, but he is quite super, and I am giving him the birthday gift of not posting embarrassing pictures of him blowing out candles while Max wipes slime on him (and I do have such pictures on file). Ian, you are an amazing gift to my life and to the life of our family, and I love you muchly. Happy Birthday, and accept this picture as a hint of your gift to come (I wonder what it could be?).
