Half Decade Birthday

It came, we celebrated, then we celebrated some more.  The half decade birthday. We now have a somewhat taller, always confident 5 year old, folks. The little guy went to a bowling birthday party last summer and for the past year has talked of nothing else. Who knew 4 and 5 year-olds could bowl? Raynes was not about to let me live down the fact the we celebrated his fourth birthday in an Alys Beach parking lot. When I tell you he reminded me of this no less than thirty-seven  times, I would not be exaggerating.  Insert a little Sunday afternoon bowling, for the handful of little boys in his class (which was plenty!), and finally I have redeemed myself.  Happiest of days to this sweet 5 year old that has a mind always turning, a mouth always questioning, and keeps my heart ever swelling. 10.17.11
