Our Dylie turned 7 this past week. He had a party last weekend, his actual birthday in the middle of the week and then he’s having another party tomorrow with friends at the bowling alley. Its a good week to be Dylan!
Dylan loves nothing more than having lots of peeps over to his house. He was in a pretty good mood.
Its fun that he can read his own cards now.
The people were all dazzled by him. Naturally.
I have no idea why, but he REALLY REALLY wanted a globe. And he was excited to get one from Gma and Gpa H.
Here’s his cake. I know what you’re thinking – “what is this?!” Where is the rant about cake making?! Well, he wanted an ice cream cake this year and I was all, “FINE BY ME!!!!”
Gpa Tom wanted me to take a picture of Maya wearing the party hat. She wouldn’t smile. I wonder why?!
Kelli and her boyfriend Ryan were here for a quick appearance. Avery dominated all of Kelli’s time, as they are best friends.
Daniel was the token cousin of the weekend. He was pumped.
And here is Dylan’s actual birthday. I made him pancakes for breakfast which he was pretty excited to wake up to.
And here is his lunch for those who were wondering. I dunked my iPhone in my full coffee cup the day before (don’t ask) and so I was unable to post it to my lunch picture folder on FB. I’m sure that many, many people were waiting on the edge of their seats for a photo that never came.
Before he went to school, I tried to do a quick “Dylan is 7!!!” photo shoot, but as usual, they were too squirrelly to cooperate.
This is the next day – playing on the hill, racing thru the leaves. Fall is definitely here.
Some of the trees in our yard.
Eric decided on a box burning fiesta to get rid of some of the moving boxes, pizza boxes from the party and whatever else he could find to burn.
It was a fine day! See how all the leaves are already gone on that tree there. Sniff sniff!
Dylan got a surprise gift in the mail from his Auntie Susan. When he asked who it was from and I told him, he goes, “Auntie Susan?!?! Oh I love her!” LOL. She gets the “cool aunt who lives far away and sends awesome presents” status. The plane was a hit, Susan.
This is our last pontoon ride of the year. 😦
Well, that’s it for now. I’ll try and add some bowling pics to this post after tomorrow.
