11 years... flew by

Holy moly- I can't believe I'm seeing these cinnamon roll numbers already:

This handsome fella turned 11 last week:

We celebrated early with a trip to a local fall farm where they had all kinds of strange chickens:

This giant rooster {?} baffled the kids for days! :) They couldn't figure out how that guy was riding it. {One of the best things about being a parent is knowing the answer to the riddle and not telling them :P}

They are all growing up so quickly. I am savoring these days when they're all kind of little and like farms and zoos and playgrounds. These are such good days. Hard, but good.

I loved seeing them enjoy the pig races. :)

And one of my favorite things about grandparents is that they will fork over $5 just so their grandkids can shoot apples out of a machine gun. :)

I'm happy to report that we made it all the way through our first corn maze:

I was worried about that one. ;)

I am so thankful for 11 years with this boy. He is full of life and loves so very deeply. He may not kiss his mama any more but he is sure to tell her he loves her every day. :)

They are both growing up so fast.

Little boys are turning into young men already. Oh, what a gift it is to be a mama. Somehow the years fly away before you even know it.

Happy birthday, my sweet Elijah boy. I am so thankful for you.

{This from a year ago already? How is it possible? I tell you no lie, this life will be over before we know it.}

Mamas of older ones tell me- how do you deal with the fact your kiddos are this.close to growing up? I may need to cry on your shoulder! ;)
