Your kids have forgotten every moment you may have embarrassed them. You are the coolest dad on the planet (at least for a day)!

You deserve all this. Not only are you a wonderful writer with subject matter that is always noble, but you also give generously to your community. Congratulations many times over!

Today I finally will be seeing your movie. I'm so excited after being teased for these past few weeks.

So many amazing photos!! Grattis!
