Andrew is 8!

My first born is 8 years old. I can't believe that both he and I are that old! Here are a few pictures of him when he was younger and then on the beach at his beach party.

We didn't have a digital camera yet, so this is when he was two years old. I REALLY need to scan all of his other pics into the computer.

So sweet. How do you resist such a face of love? He still has this same face.

Bringing in the "volcano" cake. Andrew was really excited about this cake!

It was a perfect night on Torii Beach. All that Andrew wanted was to have a campfire on the beach party, so we did! We had several families come and enjoy our picnic on the beach with a campfire party.

Some things I love about Andrew...
*He is always affectionate and loving.
*He is the most obedient child I know, even when he doesn't want to obey, he still does.
*He loves his younger brothers.
*He is his father and mother all over again. His father for his love of science, fast cars and astronomy and his mother for just about everything else (for better or worse).
*He LOVES peanut butter!
*He has the memory of 10 elephants, which scares me!
*He has great faith.
*He is "innocent" and doesn't try to tease or manipulate for gain.
*He has "chocolate" eyes just like his mom, and he loves that we have that in common.
*He is the best first born son I could have ever asked for!

Happy Birthday Andrew! I hope this year is full of happiness, health and new discoveries for you!
