Life can't be put aside for that, though. We have some dear, wonderful friends who are in from up-state New York and we're spending the weekend camping with them. So today is packing, cooking, and loads of list making so I don't forget anything. But in the midst of it all, with babe on lap, I thought I should at least get on here for a tribute to my Kane, our recent birthday boy. He and Bella have spent the week at Pap's and Nanny's house to attend VBS in my hometown, and truthfully, I have been trying to get this post up for several days, but I miss them so much that it's hard to look at the pictures of his sweet face and not feel heart-heavy. Things have not been the same without him here, and we'll all be glad when they are both home. I wouldn't trade it for the world - they are having so much fun and building tons of memories and relationships that will last their life through - but I still miss them terribly, and thinking back to his birth and the reality that five years have passed hasn't helped much.

I love you, my Kaney. Here's to many more birthday celebrations to come!
