If Jack had turned a year older for every party he had for his 7th birthday, he would now be 10. Sometimes the middle child needs a little extra love...and sometimes we're visiting SD 3 days before his birthday and it just seems natural to have a party right then.
Party 1: South Dakota friends and Family
Perfectly informal...cake, shirts optional, ladderball, Angry Birds game, pool. All good party additions.
Party 2: Family Day
We got home Thursday the 9th...the real bday was Friday the 10th. Jarrod usually tries to take the kids' birthdays off, so we all hopped in the car for a day trip. We went to the children's museum, went to toy shops, ate good food and opened gifts....then back home for ice cream cake.
Jack got his very own DS this year...he was so very excited. Car trips and weekends only, he's been loving this :) I'm not a big fan of the games...they drive me nuts really. But he loved it.
Party 3: NC Friends
Saturday night we had some good friends over for blue cheese burgers and leftover cake. You'd think he would be birthday'd out...not so. He has no front teeth, so everything's a lisp. His quote of the day Saturday: "Turning theven is the betht becauthe you get three partieth."
Yes Jack, if only we could all be so lucky.
We love you, cuddle bug :)
