Where do we even start?? We can't believe that 5 years have already passed since you were born into our family! We love you so much and can not even begin to imagine our lives without you! You bring so much energy and excitement into our lives! You are always so happy and always have a smile on your face. You are always saying funny things and making us laugh all the time! You are so full of questions and love to learn new things. You are so friendly and care so much about other people and their feelings. You love to make new friends and playing with all your friends and you love living closer to your grandparents and some of your cousins! You are such a great big brother and as soon as Bridger wakes up he is looking for you. He loves you so much and you take such good care of him! You love T-ball and Swimming lessons and you love to go camping with your Dad. You are always asking when you can go to the Sand Dunes so that you can ride the four wheeler!! You love fishing and are always asking when you can go fishing with Grandpa!! You are excited to go to Kindergarten and even more excited to ride the school bus even though you know Mom will be following behind the bus crying! We are so thankful that you were born into our family, we love you so much!!!
We had fun celebrating Braxton's 5th birthday on the 19th. I'm a little late posting this but o'well... Russell and I stayed up until midnight the night before setting up his birthday surprise. We decided to get him a trampoline so that he could spend more time outside getting rid of some of his energy!!! It was probably more for my sanity then anything, but I have to say that we have spent many nights out there as a family playing on it and I'm pretty sure it is going to be one of our greatest investments! He was so excited when he woke up on his birthday to see the trampoline waiting for him! That night Russell and I had my Mom watch Bridger so that we could just take Braxton out to dinner and we have decided that is going to be a yearly tradition. Braxton was so excited to go on a "date" with his parents and it was nice to enjoy the one on one time with him. He wanted to go to Leo's and have Pizza and play video games and we had so much fun! We took him to the store so that he could spend his birthday money from his Grandma and Grandpa Tolbert and he picked out some toys. The next night we had our families over for more presesnts and ice cream and cake. We had a great time!
