red velvet cake with fresh strawberries inside and
whip cream and candy lego pieces to decorate the outside
it's pretty special being surrounded by 18
members of your family including 3 of
your grandparents and your great-gram!
there's a lot of love for this guy

had to include this shot. there are tons of amazing spiders around right now.
bears and spiders are all over the place in PR☺

This weekend was really mostly about my boy. He was the center of well deserved attention and the reason for all the celebrating. A bit too much food was had but lots of love surrounded him everywhere we went, including the mall today where we ran into several people who wished him well. He also received several calls today and lots of birthday wishes on FB. He says it was his best birthday yet. I love you beyond words Jack. What will your 9th year bring?
