his day of fun...

Camden has never really been a sports guy - playing or watching, unless we went up to the local hockey game. Sometime last year he started being really interested in the Tampa Bay Lightning hockey, and when we checked their home schedule, we saw that there was a game right on his birthday. The perfect gift, and if we could make it a surprise, all the better!
We invited our family over for a birthday breakfast, and celebrated around the table with waffles, omelets, bacon, and donuts. It was a loud, fun morning, complete with laughter and ice cream. And while there may have been a glitch in the surprise department, he was thrilled when he found out which hockey game we were going to!

There was excitement even before the game started...
and once we got inside, even more. I love to watch my kids having fun together, and it is even better when the fun is with us.


I can hardly believe he is nineteen, but in the same breath, I can see how much he has grown... even since August. He loves school, and several times he mentioned going back home. As much as my heart wants this to be home, I am thankful he feels home both here and there. There is not much more than a Mom could want.

And so it goes...
He has filled another year with joy, dreams, and life... and I am so happy to celebrate it all, right by his side.

What fun! And a waffle with strawberries and whipped cream has been my birthday breakfast many years of my life - a favorite for sure.
