February 27 may not much mean to you, but for a Canyon County family, it's a big day, times three.

Mark Dougal was born on February 27, Trevor Dougal was also born on February 27 and Maxwell Dougal was born on February 27. Father, son, and grandson. What are the odds?

To figure that out, we would have to start with 365 days in a year. You take three random people born on the exact same day, and you are close to one in 49 million. It gets a little more complicated because it's the same family and the same gender. The real odds would be close to impossible, and it gets even more complicated.

"We are all the second son born, it's the second son born on February 27th," said Travis.

The 2/27 trio admits they share birthday cakes, birthday songs, but agree they do get different birthday presents.
