Happy birthday to Ben!
(Above picture by Michelle McKibbon Photography. Excuse the rest of these phone pictures...camera's been at the techie hospital.)
A "B" chocolate-chip pancake seemed like a good way to start the day! If it looks like he's already on a sugar high, it's because of his birthday-morning surprise...but I have video, so that will be another post.
After a morning playing with new toys, we met Daddy for lunch at Chick-fil-A! Some chicken, fruit, fries and ice cream, followed by playtime gave me this peaceful ride home.
Got this idea from Pinterest, so here's hoping to make it an annual game of 20 Questions! I noticed a lot of his answers where whatever was most recent in his mind...maybe next year I'll do my interrogation before he's even out of bed. (And maybe next year, that would be at a reasonable hour!)

Ben, we love your sweet heart, your belly laughs, your curious questions, your contagious smile, your honest words, your funky moves, your squishy cheeks, your tight hugs and your chatterbox talk...just to name a few. Four years have moved much too fast, but we're so incredibly grateful for each day and memory we've had with you in our lives. Here's to what's in store for year number 4!
love you to Pluto and back!
Mommy and Daddy
