Birthdays are exciting. . .when you're a kid. When you tip over a certain age, maybe not so much.
Today is Finn's 7th birthday. It was fun this last week to see and hear him so excited about it because let's face it, his birthdays haven't always been so much fun.
But this year, it's all about the fun!

Chemo finished! Celebrating Finn's 5th birthday in England. In the hills above Ullswater, the Lake District.
