Happy Birthday, Ronan!

On July 29, 2012 Ronan turned eight years old!  Wowee!  That seems SO big!  It's hard to believe that our first baby boy could possibly be that old. (:  We had an awesome time celebrating his birthday with his friend party on Saturday (see previous post) and his family party on Sunday after church.  
Ronan opened his presents from us before we went to church.  He got some new "cool" clothes, games, a new bike helmet, and a skate ramp.
As I was frantically getting ready for the party I saw that I had missed some calls from Erik. I figured he was just calling to say hi & Happy Birthday to Ronan, but he was actually in Eugene and on his way to the party to surprise us!  It was awesome!  We were all thrilled to see him!
Josh made this awesome watermelon shark!
We had homemade pizza--his favorite--and I made sand dollar cookies & cupcakes for dessert.

Time for dessert..
We love you so VERY much, Ronan!  We are so proud of the creative, talented, strong, and caring boy that you are!  Thank you for bringing so much joy and life to our family!
