7th birthday weekend

It was a great weekend in Bend.  I cannot believe our little nephew is seven years old!  Yikes!  I am totally terrified that I am going to blink my eyes and little Lincoln is going to be seven years old.  Ugh.

For now, I’ll just try to slow down and enjoy each moment… especially the wonderful moments when our whole family is together…

Of course Lincoln decided to take a nice long nap during our nephew’s birthday party, but husband was there and took some pictures…

And sadly, the weekend was over quickly.  I was very proud of Lincoln… six hours in the car each way and he did a great job…
