At 8:15 a.m. 6 years ago today my sweet little Andon Chase came into this world. I can't believe he is 6 years old!! I was talking to my Dad tonight and he said it feels like we were just at the hospital. I have loved and am thankful for every up and down of the last 6 years with this sweet boy!
We don't really have many birthday traditions around here yet but this year we started a few. Since he was born in the morning we thought it would be so fun to do his cake in the morning. He LOVED that idea as well! If you know Andon you know that he has a major sweet tooth! :) Here are some fun pics of our morning.
After breakfast Jared headed to work and Andon and I headed out to the trails. We have these great walking trails near our house with a fun playground. The weather was just beautiful today, high 60's, sunny and lightly breezy. We had so much fun we were gone for a couple of hours and didn't even realize it. Then we came home and got showered and went to lunch with our friends Elizabeth, Lukas and Avery. Thanks again for lunch E! After lunch we came home and relaxed until Daddy got home from work. Another tradition we want to do is let the birthday person pick where they want to go for dinner. So we let him decide and he chose.... McDonald's. Not my first choice but not my birthday. :) We had fun playing in the playground and meeting new friends there. There was this little girl that was following Andon around the whole time he was trying to play. So Jared told him to introduce himself and he did. Once he did that the flood gates opened and she told him all about herself. When it was time to go Andon said goodbye to Anna and she put her hands over her face and said NOOOO, I don't want him to go!! It was so cute! I told him he had a girlfriend and he just rolled his eyes at me. :) We had such a fun and relaxing day celebrating our boy!!
I think this weekend we may go to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. There are a few things we still want to do here in Tennessee before moving back to Florida. Oh yeah have I not mentioned that yet? We are moving back in a couple of weeks! More on that later. :)
