A Downtown Weekend

Well we checked out downtown Columbus this weekend with the boys and I have to say I am impressed.  I feel as though coming back to this city as an adult after living somewhere else has made it more difficult to fall in love but more and more I love what our city is doing.  We hit two places this weekend that are brand new, Columbus Commons and The Scioto Mile and both are great, especially for the kiddos.
Enjoy the pics!

Columbus Commons:
Fridays are all about the kids with free carousel rides, bounce houses, music and bubbles.

Scioto Mile/Bicentennial Park:

Oh yeah..."Look everyone I'm walking".

Quinton's Birthday Celebration

I am in the midst of uploading all the pics and video from last nights party but wanted to put up my top photo.  It makes my heart happy.

Birthday boys include Quinton, Uncle Sam and Grandpa

(note Shayden, he just can't help himself)

Quinton's First Year in Photos

Happy 1st Birthday Quinton

To my sweet little Quinton,
You are an amazing child of God and we feel so blessed to have you in our family.  From the moment you arrived you have added pure joy to our home.  I love how you light up when you see us (especially Shayden) and your loving nature is contagious.  Your hugs are amazing and watching the wind blow through your hair while you smile is a seared image in my mind. I hope you always know our intense and everlasting love for you and that you continue to grow to be the man God has called you to be.
All my love,

A birthday breakfast - with a hint of syrup, a first.

Birthday smiles.

First present of the day...our amazing neighbors John and Jean bought Quinton his very own lawn mower so he and Shayden can 'cut the grass' together.
