I'm beginning to think that maybe I should start all of my entries with the phrase, "Where has the time gone?" Each time I start off writing something like that, I promise myself that I won't do it again. Well, here I am writing another post and the first thing that comes to mind is the phrase that I swore I wouldn't overuse. Guess it just sums up this stage of life that we're in right now. I tell people that my days are long but the years are so fast! Life with a 4 month old, 2 year old and now 4 year old just couldn't possibly be moving any faster. It's bittersweet for me...I love watching the boys grow and try new things but oh, how I sometimes long for the days when they would snuggle up into me as infants. Then again, we've come so far...I think I'll stick to the progress we've made and remember to cherish each day just a little bit more!
This year, to celebrate Carson's 4th birthday, we had a "Bus Party!" He has been asking to have a bus-themed party for over a year! My first thought was, "A what?!?" I've never heard of such a party but with the request in high demand, I just couldn't say no! We celebrated here at the house with good friends and family and as you can see from the pics, EVERYONE had a blast! Our birthday boy was in "bus heaven!!"
What a blessing and an honor it is to be the parents of such an amazing little boy. He is such a light in our lives and we couldn't be more thankful for him! Happy 4th Birthday, Carson!
Bus snacks, of course!!
And a little sack lunch for the kiddos!
We hired this AMAZING tumble bus to come to the party because Carson really wanted to ride on a real bus. Not being able to logistically figure that one out, we came up with this and let me tell you, it was a bus "ride" to remember! This was Carson's favorite part of the party! We all loved it!
Lining up to make their grand exit!
Next, it was time to sing "Happy Birthday" to our Birthday Boy!
We're just that typical "family next door"...or so we'd like to think! Living and loving life with our two (soon-to-be three) boys to the fullest. We're grateful for each moment together as a family and work hard to relish the simple, small things that make everyday worth living for!
