2012

We noticed a prominence of powers of two in our family this year.  My daughter will turn 2^1, my son will turn 2^2, my wife and I will turn 2^5 and celebrate anniversary number 2^3.  (This may just be a fluke of the Mayan calendar).

Given this information, will there be another numerically interesting year for us, or is this it?  We can't look forward to all being powers of 2 again, but perhaps there's something else in store for us?
