this weekend we celebrated easter in a beautiful cabin, high in the mountains, with some wonderful new friends. more important, we celebrated you. we started the day with an easter egg hunt. you opened gifts and we sang to you. we went out for breakfast, went fishing, and to the zoo. when you blew out your birthday candles, you wished to be a bird so you could fly.

 eight years ago you came here from a magical place and made us a family. daddy and i will never get used to how quickly time is passing. it leaves us in a daze. you on the other hand, you’re ready to keep circling the sun at lighting speed. when I asked you how it felt to turn eight you smiled. “happy,” you said. “I’m happier.”

happy birthday buddy and thank you for eight years of awesome. God, we love you.
