Ben's Big Break Birthday Trip

Over the past 14 months, Ben stayed up nights approving PPP loans for small businesses, he went into housing projects to deliver food to low-income elderly when the city was on lockdown, he homeschooled a kindergartener and a third grader, he drove to Florida and back to help his father during a second pandemic wave and an unstable election, he took the reins on family responsibilities so his wife could see her parents after missing them for a year, he shuttled kids to countless sports games and activities, and he NEVER TOOK A BREAK.

On June 7, Ben turns 50. Let's give him the break he deserves by sending him to California where the warm sun, the comfort of his closest and oldest friends, and the freedom to do whatever he wants (free of family obligations!) will await him.

I will be taking him to Todos Santos, Mexico for a few days before this adventure as my gift. Ben does not know about any of this. Please KEEP IT A SECRET. The kids and I will figure out a fun way to reveal it all over Memorial Day weekend and hopefully you all can join on zoom. Keep you posted!
