My Baby is 9!!!!!!!!!!!

I can't believe my baby is 9!! Doesn't it seem like just yesterday when we brought our very first baby home from the hospital? I can hardly believe that 9 years have gone by so quickly!!! So to celebrate the big day we joined a homeschool group in Maine for a field trip to the Southworth Planetarium. James invited a couple of his friends and his new cousins to come along with us. We dropped off the girls with Nana Kelley and hit the road just me and SIX boys!!! I was a little unsure about how it all would go and whether I would be ready to leave them all in Portland by the end of the day but it actually went really well! We all had a good time at the planetarium and then went to Friendly's for munchies and ice cream. These next couple of pics I took of the boys on the way home, the sun was setting and looking pretty so we pulled over to the side of the road and had a quick photo shoot!This was a silly face pic!

We then went back to Nana and Bumpa's house for birthday dinner, dessert, and presents of course!! Here Ethan, James and Caleb pose for a pic:

James was really excited about all the nice gifts he got! Hot Wheels, a new ski coat and the the bow and arrow set were some of his favs! He can't wait to try this one out with Dad:

Neither can Ethan!!!

James also finally got the new watch he has been asking for! Here they are trying to figure it out:

Happy Birthday James!
We Love You!!!
