A Good Birthday

For Clayton's birthday celebration this year, we kept everything low-key since we were at the beach.  And you know what?  I think he was just fine with that!  Cake, ice cream, his cousins and his brother, and he was good to go!
His birthday each year is always a struggle for me, for obvious reasons.  It's the epitome of bittersweet.  But since we were totally out of our normal environment, I didn't have to hide any tears during our little party.  I was able to totally focus on the happiness Clayton brings us.  It was quite refreshing!
It was definitely a happy birthday for this sweet boy!
