Here he is on his actual birthday, which was a Sunday, getting ready for a family day of fun:

Here is his birthday interview, same questions as Lucy, but conducted completely separately from her:
What is the meaning of life?
How long you live. However long you get to spend time with the people around you. And who and how long you get to care for the kid that you have. And my mom’s person is William.

Bullet train driver in the US Army or famous mud bogging monster truck driver.
What brings you the most happiness?
When someone makes me laugh at a monster truck show.
When do you feel the most loved?
At home when I’m snuggling with my mom and my dad.
What are you afraid of?
Big scary shadows when I’m in my bed.

Fufu: like a fufu bunny

Getting shot and dying.

My mom after I did something really bad.
What is the meaning of love?

If you had all the money in the world, what would you do with it?
I would by a 1000 remote controls I can buy with the money I have left after buying all the Lego sets in the world, but not like the Barbie sets. Only the cool sets.
