Caleb turned 10 on Jan 8th. I am a little late with this post but you know my saying with this blog! Better late then Never! Well, if you ask Caleb about his Birthday this year, he would probably tell you it was "THE BEST BIRTHDAY EVER". Not saying too much since the kid is only 10, but for him it was Awesome. I decided to semi-surprise him for his birthday this year. He has done a really good job adjusting to this whole move and been a trooper, but I know he has missed his friends in Syracuse a ton! Southwest was having a sale on airfare from Denver, so I got him and I tickets out to SLC. We are going out of town for a week at the end of the month so I knew it had to be a real quick trip because he couldn't miss too much school. So we flew out on Thursday night ad flew back on Saturday afternoon.
Caleb and I spent the night with friends and bright and early the next morning we were up and at em! We stopped by Smiths and picked up some Birthday treats and then picked up his friend Ty and they headed to school. He was so excited to go back to school and see all of his old friends and his teacher. She was so nice to let he come back and welcomed him with open arms! So any Syracuse friends out there Patty Bowen for 4th grade is the way to go!! So while Caleb was at school, I ran around like a mad woman trying to squeeze in a few errands and visits, lunch, and pedicure. I know what you are thinking was it my birthday too?? No, but I figured I deserved it after all the work I had to do to move us and get us settled in Colorado! Caleb got to spend the night with the Witt Boys while we headed up to Wolf Creek.
Of course I had to get sick Friday night, so I had to slow my roll on Saturday. Caleb was not happy when it was time to head back to the Airport okay I wasn't either but we had to be big! We flew home and stopped by The Under Armor Outlet in our way into Castle Rock and Caleb got to buy a Jacket he has been wanting for a while. Then we headed home to have Cake with the rest of the family! It was a great trip and I was glad to be able to spend time with my 10 year old!
Happy 10th Birthday Caleb!!
