Have you ever seen the movie UP?
Some days, I feel like I need to just slow down and enjoy the journey. The elderly man in the movie UP thought he had to go on a long journey to South America. All his life, he and his wife tried to save for this big trip, but his wife had made an album of their life´s journey. She passed away and gave him that album. By the end of the movie, he realized that he and his wife had enjoyed an incredible journey together, even if they had never gotten to go to South America together.
I realized that I haven´t just sat back and enjoyed the journey lately, nor have I shared any of our journey.
So, here we go. Are you ready? Here is part one, anyway. I´ll start with our second son´s 10th birthday, April 9. Andrew is so happy to be 10. It seems to be a milestone in his life already.
Every morning of their birthay, I have the table all decorated with their gifts and lately a slide presentation just for them. Andrew loved his Smile card presentation. Especially the music. He is our little musician!
Andrew´s birthday "day" was divided into many phases. This is the second phase. A game of pool with the family. He and his daddy won against Mommy, Isaiah and Michael. They were unstoppable!
The victory smile!
Phase Two - Greek Gyros on the beach!(really cheap meal for a family of 5)
Mommy and birthday boy
Special card from Daddy.
Phase three- Special requested cake. Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheese Cake!
No Best Friend better.
Our beach view. the café let us use their terraza to have coffee and cake!
Special Requested gift.
Had to add this one. After haircuts - Phase four! only our family probably sees it as a treat to go to the barber on their birthday.
Stayed tuned for more Parts to this UP Journey!We end Part one of our photo journey with Andrew´s dream car. It may just always be just that a dream, but it´s mainly just for the color anyway. He loves Yellow!
