Our BIG guy

We planned to take the boys (oops, I mean the kids) to Knott's Berry on Sunday morning for a little fun before their nap. Unfortunately, with our concerns about Annabelle and all of the calls I needed to make we decided it would be best that I stay home but still wanted the boys to go. Thankfully, my mom decided to join the fun.
Branden and I were texting back and forth what was going on here and there. Obviously his texts were more fun than mine :-0 When this picture (below) and the words "Look who is officially a big guy" came across my phone I had mixed emotions. I was excited and happy that my Benjamin was having fun and riding the log ride -a big guy ride. At the same time I was sad that I was not there to experience that with him.

Grammy bought the "official" picture.

Yes, I cried. I'm a bit emotional this week, what can I say.
My baby boy is "officially" a BIG guy!

I know, my sweet girl, I had mixed emotions about it too. Excited to be there and go on it with him, but knew you would be sad to miss it.
I held him tight for you.
