This past week John celebrated his 11th birthday. When I look at him I can hardly believe my baby boy is 11! This is the boy I would carry around in my arms and now I can barley lift him.....and he can lift me! When did we switch places?
So how do we celebrate?
Well, first we need a cake. Funfetti was requested.
Add some snacks and balloons.
The fixings for sundaes….
And of course, the boys!
They had a ball eating and telling funny stories! This is one great group of friends : )
After that we went outside and I learned what a "face plant" is....because John did one with his sundae!
(he wasn't the only one, trust me!:)
It's ok though, because right after that it was time for water balloons and a full on water war!
Luckily Saturday was a hot August day, so this "war" was very refreshing!
Absolutely drenched but happy!
(note the Golden Girls shirt on John! LOL : )
Our family gatherings were a little more low key, but still very fun. There was cake. There was cousins. There was ice cream. I had coffee. He was happy : )
What more do we need?
Another one of John's birthday's has come and gone and I'm so grateful to our generous family and friends who helped us celebrate! John had a wonderful time! ♥
And now we rest. At least I do.... :)
Happy new week, friends!
Can you believe we are mid way through August?
It's time to cram in all the summer we can before it's over. We've only got 2 and a half weeks to go before John goes back to school. I'm excited for Fall but sad to see the summer coming to an end. And I've only had 1 s'more all season! I've got a lot of catching up to do in the next 2 weeks! ♥
