Aaron at Play and Rest

We had a bit of a scare last week. On Friday evening our external hard drive suddenly stopped working. We used this drive to store our photos, videos, and documents. Unfortunately (and unintelligently) we had not created a backup of any of the files on the drive, so we were a little upset at the thought of having lost all of our data. But we were hopeful that it was simply a minor hardware problem and not the hard drive itself. Praise God it was only the enclosure and the drive is working splendidly again! Now, to make that backup!

Tomorrow we celebrate Aaron's two year birthday. He has grown a LOT, it is amazing to see the changes each day as he adds more words to his vocabulary ("All done Cat Comes Back" as he hands me his Dr. Seuss book or "Purple car go up stairs" as he drives his car up the stairs).

Here are a few pictures of him at play:

He loves to "go under" things.

A few weeks ago we discovered this great little playground near our home, Aaron loves the slide!

As you can see, he also loves his purple car and carries it with him everywhere!

The car slides.

Then Aaron slides!

At the end of the day, Aaron is usually very tired and sleeps well. In the morning though he will wake up and get out his books. On this morning he got his books, read them, lined them up, and went back to sleep before we got to him.

Have a great week! Remember our little two-year old in your prayers.

Grandma and Grandpa would like to be there, too. We miss him (and his mama and daddy, too) a lot!
Happy birthday, my sweet little Aaron! I love you!

A very happy day to your "big boy" Aaron! Jack sends his greetings, and wishes they could play in the "tunnel" together! Your visit this summer is greatly anticipated- our little men will have such fun playing!
