Dillon Turns 8!

On the first of September we celebrated Dillon's 8th birthday.  He was so excited for it to come and that it came on a long weekend.  We got to celebrate for four days!  Friday night we went to a football game.  Saturday Michael made in sourdough pancakes for breakfast and I made him fried pies for dessert.  We grilled out that night per his request and he got to open all his presents.  Sunday night we had a fire and made s'mores and then the four youngest kids and Micheal slept out in the tent.  Monday we went kayaking and played in the lake.  It was a fun weekend spent together celebrating Dillon!  We are so thankful to have Dillon.  He is such a sweet boy.  He always tries to do his best and be obedient.  He is patient and kind and caring.  We are also extremely proud of his decision to be baptized this Sunday.  He is so excited for it and we are excited too!
He got his build a bear horse from Michael's parents like all the grandkids do on their 8th birthday.  He has been patiently waiting for 3 years :)  He also got a few vikings things and some tools to help daddy fix things!
Happy Birthday Susie boy!  We love you!!
