The Big 4

Wow. Amazing how time flies, isn't it? Taylor turned 4 years old on Saturday. I can't believe he's already 4, but at the same time I can't remember what life was like without him.
Here he is right after he woke up. He was so excited about all the balloons, as was Erik.

So we've been wanting to get a trampoline for a while. So we went ahead and got one for his birthday. Here he is when he first saw it-

They both love it!

Here he is blowing out the candles. I tried not to think about how much spit was ending up on the top of the cake.

During our little barbecue we had a surprise guest. A raccoon decided to climb up on all the blackberry bushes and help himself to some. He was cute and all, until he started getting a little too brave and started coming closer to our side of the fence. So we had to throw a few rocks to scare it away.

We couldn't ask for a better kid. He's such a great little boy. We love you, Taylor!

wow, 4 already!!! What a cutie :) And the raccoon is quite cute, too. We had 2 or 3 in our yard last husband nearly became attached to one until he realized it was probably being really nice because it was in the beginning phase of rabies. Watch out, raccoons are the biggest contributor to rabies here in Rockville.

I was really expecting a picture of Kent showing Taylor how to do all the neat tricks on the trampoline. Our little Taylor is
4, hard to believe.
