My baby is officially a teenager today.
If there's a mantra for the life Coleman has lead thus far, it would have to be go big, or go home.
The term half-assed will never apply to this one. That's for dang sure.
Happy 13, Coleman Z.
You just keep going. We'll try to keep up.
Young Coleman Zielske, the hero St. Paul deserves, but not the one it needs. Silent guardian, watchful protector, dark knight.

Happy birthday Cole! You guy shares a birthday with mine - a 10 year old who is committed to wring every last drop fun from his childhood he possibly can. He is worried it might be harder now that he's in the "double digits."
Here's to another year for going BIG for both of our boys!

Wow. These pictures capture so much of his spirit and his boundless energy. That smile could power half the state, and has often powered me. Thanks Cole for a great first thirteen.
