The Palin family has a big reason to celebrate! Their youngest child, Trig, turned 9 on Wednesday, but the boy’s own mom Sarah wasn’t around for his big day. Instead, the polarizing politician was in Washington, D.C., partying it up with President Trump and Kid Rock. But luckily, it looks like she made it back in time to celebrate Trig’s birthday on Thursday, along with her daughter Bristol Palin Meyer. Both women took to social media to share sweet posts of the adorable little man, trying to make up for mom's absence the day before. Trig was just a toddler when Sarah first stepped into the limelight as John McCain’s running mate in 2008, but he’s growing up fast, and by the looks of it, he’s making his family proud every day.
