my boy is growing up

It is strange when you realize right before your eyes that your kids are growing up. Yesterday we spent some time with our good friends Jon and Emily at the Mall of America. Jacob and Isabelle were blessed with some free unlimited ride passes for the theme park.

Everything was normal and fine when I was going on the rides with them, but then we came to the airplane ride. This ride required that you be over 36" (which Jacob is) and under 48" (which I am not). That meant that my little boy was going on a ride without me next to him for the first time in his life. It was a sad and yet happy moment to watch my little Jakey be such a BIG BOY!

Pretty soon he won't need me for anything....
