Ethan's 5th Birthday

At 8:50 this morning Ethan turned 5. Five years ago he was born on Easter Sunday. I still remember my water breaking at 11:00 on Saturday night and Derek calling Bill Poppen to tell him that he was going to have to lead the worship on Easter. Bill had to call back and get the song list because he was in shock that he was going to have to lead for Easter. I also remember that nothing was open on Easter Sunday so we had Burger King for lunch. Ethan was a big baby at 9lbs 9 ounces. He has been a joy in our life and always makes us laugh with the crazy things he says. He had a great day today. He woke up and was able to open a few presents and we went to Dunkin Donuts (his favorite) before church. While waiting for Daddy to get home he played on his Slip n Slide some more and got Aunt Joy involved. I found a cool spin art thing on clearance and he enjoyed playing with it. We headed to the beach when Derek got home and Darren met us there. Darren lives close to the beach so Ethan was able to ride with him in his Jeep. He was grinning from ear to ear. Great Grandma had sent Ethan some money in a car and told him to buy some ice cream for him and Aubrey. He was very excited when the ice cream truck happened to come by our house tonight during dinner. After dinner it was more presents and cake time. The word "awesome" was used multiple times while opening presents. Ethan went to bed a tired and happy boy.
