It's great to be 8!

This kid, he is a sweetheart.  Oh, when he is tired or hungry or when he feels hurt he can be cranky.  But for the most part, he is a happy little boy.  Monday was his birthday, but Friday was his party with friends.  We made the most of it.
 For his birthday from family he received a soft and lovable camouflage teddy bear (Haley was instantly jealous).  He also received some long awaited lego sets, books, a scout shirt and a youth lifetime kayak for the cabin.  So much fun! I also made him a smaller sized rainbow quilt, in celebration of all things rainbow and that he is getting baptized.
 We had a birthday miracle in the fact that I was actually able to pick out a tasty, very yummy perfectly ripe watermelon.
 Some photos from the very blustery friend birthday party.  I knew it was going to be windy, so we went with it.  We had bubble wands to the delight of all the kids.  They also played with darts you shot in the air, soccer and the flying paper plates were entertaining as well.  The weather held out long enough for them to enjoy their time and when parents were coming to get kids, it started to rain.  Planned pretty well.
 The playground was new and fun for all to explore and play on.
Happy Birthday, Willy B!  Such a sweet kid.
