Happy Zander Day

Amazing... it was four years ago today we returned from Seoul and officially welcomed Zander into our family. So many cherished memories, and we can hardly believe our little guy is already a Preschool Graduate!
The family had a great time at Zander's recent graduation ceremony. Our soon-to-be-kindergartner enjoyed celebrating with friends Brendan, Charlie, Henry, and Merrick:
  Singing a spirited rendition of 'Let It Go'...
Congratulations from Nannie!
 Go Big Brother!!
Zander continues to love playing Tball - he was thrilled that today's practice included transition from the tee to 'coach pitch'!  Here's the crew:

Good game!
Zander is also playing soccer this summer and is having a lot of fun with it:
About to take a big defensive hit:
Water break...
Go, Z!
Let's go Zander!
 Nice hustling!
Daddy, Brendan, and Zander:
All done!
We love you Zander!!  Life continues to be an adventure with you and we wouldn't change a thing!

Next was a special birthday dinner at... Buca!  Nice job with the menu, Kiana!
 Hi!  I'm FIVE!
 It was so fun to have the Buca singers bring the big candelabra and sing their special birthday song:
 Okay, here goes!
 "You did it" hug from Kiana!
 We even fit in a quick happy birthday greeting from Cousins Luke & Brady!
