For Noah's 9th birthday, he was so happy to get to celebrate it with his friends at school with cupcakes and treats the day before and then on Saturday, we took him and the little ones to the new children's museum in San Antonio, the Doseum. We had heard from friends that it's a really cool place for kids. The night before we went, we showed Noah a video on their website about the museum and he was super excited about going the next day. And so Saturday morning--we loaded the kids up and headed that way. When we arrived, it was already pretty crowded when we pulled into the parking lot--and when we walked in, the place was bustling with families and kids running and exploring everywhere. It's a huge museum and there are activities for the kids to do both indoors and outdoors.
Here are some of the fun things the kids enjoyed doing while we were at the Doseum...
After spending a few hours at the children's museum, we left to grab a bite to eat and then headed back home to continue Noah's birthday celebration with cake and opening his gifts.
Gavin and Taylor LOVED helping Noah celebrate his birthday… :-)
He loved opening his presents from his grandparents, his cousins, his brother and sister and mom and dad.
We had such a fun day celebrating little man's 9th birthday. Special memories were made. It's hard to believe he's this age…it just seems like yesterday we were holding our tiny little baby boy in our arms…
Oh how we love you Noah Riley!! Someday when you're older and reading this little blog book of mine about our family memories--I want you to know this…. You, my dear son, fill all of our lives with SO MUCH love, laughter and joy --and have since the day you were born. You have such a big heart and love to make others laugh. You never meet a stranger and have more energy than anyone I've ever known. I know the Lord has a very special plan for you and your life. You have been blessed with some very special and unique talents that will bless you and carry you through this earthly life. May you always have a desire to stay close to the Savior and seek to live your life in accordance with His teachings. I know in my heart and from experience that if you do this, it will lead you to greater happiness and joy in this life. I thank Heavenly Father every single day for blessing me to be your mama.
