Happy birthday Aidan!!!!

Aidan, 
you are amazing and we couldn't imagine life without you.
God has given you so many strengths, talents and insights.  
We pray that you use them to the best of your ability.

Time seems to be going faster and faster and I just wish I could slow it down, if only a little.  
I know way too soon days, months and years will pass 
and these sweet early years will be a thing of the past.

I am thankful that you haven't gotten too old to cuddle at night before bed or kiss me goodbye before heading off to school (even if you do have to do it quick before anyone sees).

May today bring you all the blessings that God intends for you to have.
May you openly and faithfully follow His call in your life wherever that may take you.
And may you know how much we truly love you!

Happy 9th birthday sweet boy!

Aidan chose to celebrate his special day by taking his best buddy, Avery with us for a day at the zoo.


Hanging out with the lowland gorillas!

Feeding the Lorikeets

Sweet sisters watching the sea lion show.

Down under with the kangaroos

It wouldn't be a birthday without his favorite sprinkle cake!
We had a fantastic day celebrating our boy.  The boys had a great day and the girls both enjoyed their first zoo trip.  The girls were so worn out because of no nap day that they were both asleep by 6:30 allowing us to have a fun movie night with our big 9 year old.
