SEVEN!

The weekend was a busy one! We spent Saturday in the Captial City helping Mason celebrate another birthday, they're coming faster and faster each year it seems. Seven years old already!  SEVEN!! Wow. He has a loving a giving heart; his request, in lieu of gifts, was that his friends bring non perishable food items to be donated to The Food Bank. After bowling and pizza, the family (both sets of grandparents, Mom, Dad, Mason and Lucy Ann) drove to The Food Bank to drop off the donations; we all pitched and volunteered there together, sorting fresh corn for distribution. It was one terrific day we'll all remember.

Oh, and if you're wondering how old the birthday boy's sister is now, here you go. She'll be holding up all the fingers on that hand come October. Sigh.
Life is Good!

Oh, how times flies! SO glad that extended family is able to be involved as they're growing up.

Such a handsome 7 year old. Our Lucy Ann's big brother will be 7 tomorrow! And she will be 3 in August.
They grow up so very fast.

What an impressive 7-year-old, to want to give to those in need on his birthday instead of receive for himself. Someone has taught him very well!
