Happy Birthday Buckaroo!

Wow, time sure does fly!
Ethan, our first grandson, will turn 9 tomorrow.
I got to watch him his first 3 years and we had a blast! I introduced him to Rachael Ray cooking shows, raced him on all his mobile toys and bought him his first push-up off the ice cream truck!
What a blast we had, but then he got older and needed to go to pre-school to learn to be social, so off he went..to grow up and become a little man.
He now races Bandelero race cars,(they can start at 8 years old!) and he does not even have a drivers license???  What?? Those cars go up to 80 miles an hour!! I won't even do that on the freeway - yeah, that's me in the slow lane soaking up life people!! While he is out there pedal to the metal racing that car!!
Anyway, just wanted to say Happy Birthday Ethan, I love you, you will always have a special place in my heart!

Here is a look back through his scrapbooks that I made!
Awww, chocolate cupcakes, gotta lick the spoon!

He loved playing with the pots and pans, come on culinary school grad!!

My favorite, the first ice cream off the truck, love that face!!

Every day we stopped to watch Rachael Ray cook us something!

Hey, he learned to race from me! Just so you know!!

UH, he wrecked on his own, I swear!!! I win!!!

That cat loved Ethan more then spaghetti, and that cat loved spaghetti!!!

P.S I hope you become a chef due to Ma-maw's influence!! or a pro-baseball player, it's all good!
