It's been a long time coming. Yesterday, we took Buddy to the dog park.

Nineteen today! It is our first birthday celebrating apart - kind of bittersweet. He called last night dragging out the conversation until after midnight. We got to be the first to wish him Happy Birthday!
I sent him a box that he got on Friday. He asked for Oatmeal cookies. I used press n seal, individually wrapping 19 cookies. They arrived perfectly. I was surprised as it was so hot here. As of last night, Pumpkin had eaten all but three of the cookies. He said they were awesome. We sent a Vandy baseball cap and a new Speedo brief. When I was home, I asked my mom about her 19 favorite things. I put together a card capturing her favorites. I forgot to take a picture. Pumpkin is supposed to send me one.
My pregnancy was very long with Pumpkin. Every minute of bed rest was worth it. I am so grateful to be his mom. He's taught us so much and exposed us to so many new things. Can't wait to see what the future holds. Just want time to slow down a bit. These past 19 years went way too fast!!

Last night was the second cross country meet of the season. Peanut and I wore our matching shirts and I begged him to snap a selfie. Didn't realize we were gonna have matching forehead bulging veins too!
I was a nervous mom - after the ambulance experience last week. It poured all day and continued to pour during the race. Peanut took my advice finishing upright, without injury and with a PR time. More to come on that once a fellow mom posts pictures.

Almost 18 years ago, we celebrated Pumpkin's first birthday. We were at an Italian Festival in Pittsburgh. Wow! Where did the time go? He was dancing on the table and entertaining us all.

Pumpkin sent the Big Guy this shirt at the start of summer. Initially, the Big Guy thought it was too bright to wear to work. Then, he decided to just go for it. So, yesterday, he was all decked out in CGA attire. Yes. His lanyard sports the Academy too. Do you think he is a proud papa?
We were laughing at this picture. The angle really makes him look like a Big Guy!

This is what Peanut earned for his running on Saturday. I think there is something in the boys' genes that they have to make goofy faces when their picture is taken! Actually, I enjoy seeing some sass in Peanut. He tends to hold it all in. Hope I don't eat my words...
