Today my oldest son, Jayden, turns 9. Every year he gets older, I wonder where the time has gone. Jayden and I have been through the ringer together and this year proves no different. I remember the day I found out I was carrying him like it was yesterday. The thirty hours of labor, the first time I laid eyes on him, the first time in my life my heart was really complete.

This year he wanted a hunting themed party and we did our best to make that happen.

Happy birthday Jayden!
