We celebrated Jonathan’s 9th Birthday a few weekends ago (insert all the tears here)!!! I seriously can’t believe he is nine! He is growing up to be such an amazing, kind young man. He is smart, funny, and energetic! He’s so fun at this age because he wants to be involved in all the “grown-up” talks and somewhat ready to move up from the “kid” table. He loves soccer and hockey. He is the world’s greatest big brother. I am so blessed to be on this journey with him and can’t wait to see all he accomplishes.
For his party, he decided he wanted a few friends to come over and have it at home instead of at a place. We staged the backyard into a battle zone so they could have a nerf gun battle. Jonathan also painted some boxes prior to the party and used them for additional barriers outside. They looked really cool and I’m bummed that I didn’t get any pictures of them. My sister came up and stayed with us a few days before his party and created a scavenger hunt for Jonathan and his friends. They really enjoyed the hunt and were happy to find the treasure which was a few small nerf guns for our guests to take home as party favors. The boys played outside, we ate pizza, and finished up with birthday cake! It was such a fun day and we loved every minute getting to celebrate our sweet boy!
Dream big Jonathan!!!
We love you so much!
