Ben's 8th B-Day!

Ben.  
My second son.  
The more serious one.  
The one who likes things to be "just so."  
The one with the infectious laugh.  
The one who is a whiz at math.  
And the one who inherited all the Scandinavian genes, apparently!  
He's the one who turned EIGHT in August!  
We put this on his invitations:

"Ben is turning EIGHT
and I know that he can't WAIT
for you to help him CELEBRATE
so come and swim at SUNGATE!"

Helping to make the "Pool Cake"- same as last year as per his request!




Charlie- protecting the candles from the breeze!

"Get this photo over with so I can eat cake and SWIM!"




Love this boy. 
Feel honored to be his Mommy.
