Bobby's birthday, biking



It's still cold here - 42 today - but we are out biking anyway. Here are Beth G, Terri, Erin, and I heading out after our swim last Tuesday.

Bobby turned 10 last week, too. I can't believe it's been 10 years since the most life-altering, blessed, amazing day of my life. I was forever changed in that moment. When I think back on who I was on April 25th, and who I became on April 26th of that year - I can hardly recognize the "old" Jenny. I love being a mom! Here we are in the kitchen when Bobby woke up and realized we had decorated the kitchen and baked him a cake:






For his birthday he wanted to go see Casting Crowns play at the Excel Energy Center. We bought tickets the minute they went on sale and had really great seats. He brought two of his friends from school. At one point during the show Bobby leaned over to me and said, "This is the best birthday ever, Mom." and then he squeezed my hand. Can't beat that.


Have a great day everybody!

I've gotten a couple of those "best ever" squeezes before. They rock.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOBBY! Ten is a GREAT age ! I still remember everything staring to make sense and come together at ten. Awakenings. You are lucky to be born in such a wonderful family!
Anyway...you are some tough cookie to wear shorts in 42 degrees! My knees would freeze and my legs would just fall off if I tried that!
