Happy 7th Birthday!



Ben,
This is it. My favorite smile. The one that puts my heart at ease.
It's so relaxed...quietly confident. As if you know how much you are loved.
Impossible.

Seven years ago today you changed our lives. Took them over really, but that's okay because watching you go from our little "boogie" to our big boy "bub" has been something else.

You still don't do sleep overs because there's no place you would rather be than with us. And I don't care if that ever changes :)
You are always seeking an adventure and will climb anything but won't step foot on a roller coaster.
Your favorite color is yellow.
You love legos, gogos, Harry Potter, Indiana Jones & Star Wars but Daddy is your hero.

You once told me you want to build homes when you grow up so you can build Bowen & Brinley houses right next door to you and build Mommy & Daddy one on the other side.
You want to marry "a cute girl."

My witty, brave, mischievous little boy, I don't know what you will grow up to do or achieve but I do know how awesome it will be to watch you every step of the way.


Happy Birthday!!
Love,
Mommy & Daddy

Four weeks...really?

This was taken when we enjoyed a private tour of Braum's Dairy last month.
Love me some Braum's. Did you know Mr & Mrs. Braum still live on the farm? And their low fat milk has so much more protein & good stuff than other brands?
Anyway, I digress....
Between, working, packing, moving & unpacking....I did not pick up my camera for 4 weeks!!
Shame on me.
But yesterday when I knew I had to capture these little faces!

So happy for a break from the heat.
So happy to see some wet stuff.
