Nolan turned 5 almost a MONTH AGO. The fact that I'm just now getting around to posting about it is in no way a reflection of our excitement about it because trust me, that boy was c-e-l-e-b-r-a-t-e-d. Instead, the delay is a reflection of just how crazy the month of September has been for us. With hurricanes and flights to Texas and lots in between it has just been a big ole month. Like September, where did you even come from. And like, where have you gone??
We celebrated the day of Nolan's 5th birthday with cupcakes at school and a special dinner that night together as a family. That weekend we celebrated with a Paw Patrol party (his choice) at home alongside close friends and family.
It was SUCH a fun week celebrating our big guy.
Nolan, you are the most kind-hearted, inquisitive five-year-old I know. A few of my favorite things about you are your love for school, the way you thrive on conversation and quality time with friends, your willingness to help your daddy with any task at the drop of a hat, your rock and cicada and acorn collections, and your continued love for all things trucks.
Your dad climbed a tree after your birthday balloons floated away and got stuck in it.
Never ever doubt his love for you!
Pure joy after getting them back.
Dinner at The 5 Spot with our 5 year old, of course!
And once again Uncle Craig did an amazing job capturing some photos at your party!
WE LOVE YOU, BUD.
