We decided to take the whole Saturday to celebrate, and boy was it a full day!
First Aidan, Grace, and I ran in the "Cherish the Kids" 5K at James River very early in the morning. Aidan ran his little heart out while Grace and I enjoyed the morning with a walk.
Next we invited family and friends to the Republic Aquatics center for an afternoon of swimming. The kids had a great time, the water was a little too cool for the adults.
I can't believe he is 8!
Setting up before the guests arrive
After running home to change clothes and relax a little, the family met up for the Springfield Cardinals vs. Arkansas Travelers game. There was a quick rain storm that went through town but then it turned out to be a perfect evening for family time, baseball, and of course nachos!
