All About Aaden

Aaden got to go to summer camp for the first time this year. This past week he and his daddy have been going to Winnsboro, TX to Camp Deer Run. It is this awesome Christian camp out in the words with hiking, swimming, crafts, water games, story telling, and bible stories! Aaden had a blast! We are so proud of our little PeeWee (what they call the day campers)!!! Aaden and Aaron on his [their] first day of camp.

Aaden was so excited to be going to Camp Deer Run where his daddy went when he was little, and worked when he was in college. They had a great week, and I am sure this is the beginning of a long standing tradition for these boys (and Rylan when she gets older).

5 years ago on June 24, 2004 we were blessed with our first child, a beautiful baby boy. We named him Aaden Scott Thomas. Aaden was born in College Station about 6:30 in the evening. I was in labor for 12 hours, and it was worth EVERY second!
We recently just celebrated his 5th birthday! I can't believe it! Wow, how time flies! He started out as a perfect and beautiful baby boy, and he is quickly growing into such a little gentleman. He is funny, somewhat shy, and very very loving. He already loves the Lord, and has a very sweet heart. I am so proud of my big boy!

He will be starting Kindergarten this year at ACA, and he is super excited! I love watching him grow and learn new things with each day.

Such a proud daddy holding his baby boy for the very first time!

I just love this picture! You can see his perfect little round head, his pink cheeks, and his tongue curled up as he cries for the very first time.

We decided not to have a party this year with friends because we wanted to go to the lake instead. We made the trip to Tow, TX (6.5 hours away) to Lake Buchanan. There was Meme, Poppy, Great Nana, Aunt Sissy, and Uncle Seth (my parents, grandmother, sister and brother in law). We left Friday after school and came home Sunday afternoon. It was a VERY quick trip, but well worth it! (This was a few weeks ago, by the way. Better late than never!) Aaden told Meme that he wanted a non-glutenfree (so regular) white cake with white icing and spider man! Here is what she and Aunt Sissy came up with. Pretty good I think!

Blowing out his candles!

Uh oh! They're trick candles! Keep blowing!

Everyone had to blow to get the candles all out! Ha ha ha Poppy!

Happy Birthday Aaden! We love you!!
