Happy Birthday, Evan! :)

I can't believe he is ten today!
Where does the time go?

In the past year he has...
learned how to climb a tree...
been to the Lego Discovery Center in Chicago...
seen U2 not once (this photo Chicago),
but twice up close by the stage. How many kids his age can say that! (And ignore me in this photo, that is water on my shirt because it was so hot! A heat advisory in effect actually. Thankfully they didn't make Evan stand in line all day like us. He was able to come down at 5pm.) But look how cute and happy he is!

And it was worth it! :)

Moving on :)
Been to the CN Tower in Canada. And if you know Evan's love of architecture, you know how much he wanted to see this.
Been to the Hockey Hall of Fame. I had to wait until I was 24 for that one!
 and Niagra Falls!
Started fourth grade...
Visited the 9/11 Memorial here...
Had his dad create the coolest Hogwarts castle for Trunk or Treat at school (with costumes and everything)
Worked really hard on his science fair Earthquakes and Buildings project...
and was able to take a special trip to Indianapolis with his Dad and Erin to see his favorite skyscraper there :)

He wants to be an architect, loves Legos, and likes to travel. And he really did get to travel to some fun places last year! He is a great big brother (when he's not teasing her). And I feel very lucky to be his mom!
I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for him :)

  4. Happy birthday to Evan!!! He has had a wonderful year, for sure!! I LOVE the monument in downtown Indy, too!! It is great to see it in one of your pictures!!

  5. Happy Birthday Evan!!! He did some awesome things this year! I would love to see U2 (I had tickets once, but it turned out to be Back to School night, and I was student teaching, so I wasn't allowed to go, turns out I was the only student teacher at BTSN...I could have gone to the concert, I'm still angry about that!). And to go see all of those fun places, the only ones I've seen on this list are the ones in Chicago!

  6. Happy Birthday to the birthday boy!!! Loved looking at the photos!
