My not-so little Mason turned 5 years old on Tuesday. How in the world does time pass so quickly? It seems like not too long ago that I gave birth to two of the most beautiful little boys in the entire world! I am so very proud of my sweet boy & looking at him, it’s hard to believe he was once just 3 lbs 7 oz! God has truly blessed me with getting to be the mommy of my sweet boys. I definitely shed several tears on Tuesday. 5 years was a rough one to hit & not have Miles with us. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about Miles & what could have been.
We started his birthday by going to the party store for them to choose balloons for Miles. Mason picked Transformers & Millie choose pink with white dots. We then went to the grave, sang Happy Birthday to Mason & Miles, and then the four of us let go of our balloons. Mason chased after it screaming “We love you Miles!!!!!” Definitely was choking back the tears at that point!
We then headed to DQ for lunch & let them play in the play place (thank goodness for disinfectant!) Then, we came home for naps & then opened presents. Mason LOVED his Razor 360 & we had to go test it out in the school parking lot. It is so much fun! I even gave it a spin! 🙂 We then jumped in the car & headed to Springfield to Chuck E Cheese. The pizza was blech, but the kids had so much fun playing the games & earning tickets! We then headed over to Toys R Us 15 minutes before they closed & Mason got to spend some birthday money. He definitely thinks that being 5 is the greatest thing ever!!
And…here’s a little video that I put together of Mason’s first 5 years…I love this little guy!!!!
Happy 5th Birthday Mason & Miles!!!
