Avery turns 7!


Happy Birthday to Avery! To celebrate, Carolyn and I took the day off from work, and Caleb took the day off from preschool/daycare.  Avery had a 1/2 day of school, and we brought blueberry/vanilla cupcakes to his class.  I read Avery's favorite book to the students: Harold and the Purple Crayon.  Then we played on the playground, had lunch at TGIF, and went back home to give Avery his present: Mario Kart for the Wii.  Later on, Avery got a new big boy bike -- no more training wheels!  And Caleb can use Avery's old bike.  He is already riding it like a pro. All in all, a good birthday.

Avery turns 7! mini golf party

It is so hard to believe that our itty bitty baby boy is now a very tall (4'7"!) 7-year old.  We had a fun birthday party at Saxon Woods mini golf.  Several students in his class came and the kids played golf, had snacks (including delicious watermelon punch from Stew Leonard's that tasted like a Jolly Rancher! Also cupcakes with Minecraft decorations) and then played on the playground until it was time to leav.  Also, BFF Aaron came, and both Avery and Caleb were thrilled because Aaron makes them laugh. He is so funny! The weather was beautiful, and it was a successful party.
