Birthday Week

Last week we celebrated Thing #1's and Thing #2's birthdays.
Things #1, #2, and #3 enjoying one of many cakes.
With birthdays 6 days apart, it really is more of a family week-long extravaganza than anything.
This year, we took a field trip to Holiday World on day #2 of school.
Our super awesome trip to the amusement park made for a tired family.
Wife and I took turns riding with the older 2, and found some cool things (like the wave pool) for Thing #3 to play in. It was great.
More birthday week stuff after the jump....

Thing #2 and his awesome cake.

Thing #1 turned 10. She got a lemon blueberry cake that was SO YUM!
So now I have a 10-year-old. As a parent, it's a new thing. I will always remember turning 10, and how cool it was to be in double-digits. It's so humbling to reflect on a DECADE of having such awesome kids.
Wife and I enjoyed some wine last night and reminisced about 10 years of parenthood, where we were, how far we've come, and all that jazz.
It's a humbling experience, realizing that the little soul that God entrusted to me is now 10 years into her existence.
