Happy Birthday Lucas!

Tomorrow we will make the journey to Monee, IL to celebrate the first year of life of Lucas Zukowski. Our dear friends Wally and Amy welcomed this bundle of joy into the world one year ago today. (Happy Birthday Lucas!) I was REALLY hoping that he'd be born on my birthday but alas he was destined for 12/11.
The week after he was born we all made a trip to Monee to meet him. I'll never forget that day - our group of friends gathered to celebrate this wonderful new life; each of us getting a chance to hold him. (Except for TJ who refused..ha!) It's a crazy thing when you've grown up with these same group of friends. We saw each other through college, weddings, and now this. Such a special thing to be able to share together. That night the snow started to fall and we all drove home in snow storms (to yet of our respective destinations) but some how you knew it was all worth it.

Happy Birthday buddy - looking forward to celebrating with you tomorrow!

Here is a little flashback with some pictures from that day - what a difference a year makes!
