Birthday at the Beach!

It's a well established fact that Kaden's a junior beach bum but did you know he was born on the same day as the extremely unique 2008 summer solstice? Despite any skepticism I may have about astrology, there's absolutely no doubt in my mind that his spirit aligned with the cosmos that day. He loves the beach, from the splashing of waves on his feet to the warm scratchiness of sand through his fingers (sensory defensiveness be damned!) and even the taste and smell of pizza from just off the boardwalk. I love it and find myself wishing we could live in a perpetual summer at the beach. With just one little (okay, big) caveat - Sydney sorta hates the beach at this point.
So there's that to consider.  But I'm sure that will change . . .
Anyway, our beautiful boy turned 4 on June 20th. We celebrated for days and marveled at how much he's grown, how fast things change and how wonderous our journey has been so far.  Little boy, you constantly amaze us and we're profoundly grateful that we get to share this life with you. 

We played at the beach

And at the park.

Sydney even managed to have a little fun too!

Happy Birthday, Sweet Boy! This is gonna be a great year!

If you come back to LA, you *can* have your perpetual summer at the beach!
