Happy Birthday Dear Declan

Nine years ago today I was blessed with my first grandchild, Declan.  Time sure does fly it seems like he was a tiny baby just yesterday. We had a family celebration, my three children and their families all came to wish Declan a happy birthday. The weather was perfect, the food was delicious, and the cousin all played together. Sadly my youngest daughters family only stayed a short time. Her three year old son had surgery a week ago, and wasn't supposed to be running around.  

My daughter-in-law, Declan, my son Aaron.

My precious grandchildren.

While the boys were busy playing, my little LuLu found a grasshopper to befriend.

At some point, the children decided to pick 
soybeans that border my son's backyard.

Soybean plant.

My grandchildren just love edamame with garlic salt and olive oil.

While the children played and the adults chatted, 
my son-in-law and son were busy putting together
a basketball hoop for Declan.

Lulu was a willing helper for her dad and uncle.

Declan's basketball hoop was a 
birthday present from his mom and dad.
Happy Birthday Declan!
