Jump Around: Ben's 9th Birthday

On January 29th this handsome fella turned 9 years old. And then promptly reminded me that he will be a teenager in 4 years. Cue the tears.

When your birthday falls on a school day it's not quite as fun as the weekend, but we made the most of it. Donuts and a candle in the morning. 

I ate lunch with him at school and then that night we ate his favorite Olive Garden and had cake and presents. When the candles are trick ones, you have to blow extra hard :)

As Ben's gotten older I've traded in pretty Pinterest inspired parties for practical ones and I don't miss it one bit. Not having to clean and cook for a house full of wild kids is just as great as it sounds. A new SkyZone just opened in our town and it was perfect timing for a birthday party. The kids had so much fun and could go as crazy as they wanted. 

And just like that another year has passed.
