yay 10!

Technically he won't be ten until Saturday, but we celebrated Kaden's birthday today because of the Utah holiday weekend. I do believe ten is my favorite age. We took Kaden and his friends bowling today and the kids were so respectful and so enjoyable. It's such a happy, content age. I'd really like to freeze Kaden at 10. He's such a happy boy. The balloons were Kyler's idea...he got all giddy this afternoon, ran over to me, and whispered in my ear, "Mom! I think I know what we should get Kaden for his birthday! BALLOONS!!!" What a wonderful idea! I'm so glad he thought of it. Of course, the first thing Kaden asked was if he could suck the helium out of the balloons. Great. You know, that is one thing I have never done. I once heard that sucking helium kills brain cells and I can't spare any brain cells. Ahhh, to be young and free with the brain cells...
Yay 10!

Kim, What a fun birthday. I love age 10 too! LOVED your "Ellen" quote on my blog so I'll return the favor: Some people can take pics and some people can t-a-a-a-a-a-ke pics! You rock! What a fun mommy you are.

P.S. I now know why I am so brain dead lately. I have sucked helium out of balloons one too many times!
