9 trips and some mint chocolate cake
We had a birthday celebration on Sunday.
Our dear eldest boy has turned 9 years old !
There was a fancy meal - (which I did not photograph!) - consisting of grilled steaks, pinto beans,
shrimp, and pinto beans , all per Jacks' request. YumMMM. There was cake. Oh yes, the cake.
It was this cake , and boy was it amazing. There were presents ! Minecraft things, because you
know these boys are Minecraft crazy. Jack was thrilled with his book, and proceeded to tell me
what a NPC and Trolling all meant. (what?) His request was a video camera, and so his dear Granny Rose and Poppy Maurice have spoiled him with a special camera , coming soon! He was surprised by his Nana and Pops with his
very own junior bow and arrow set, and Aunt Paula and Uncle Bryan with an awesome practice target.
We were hoping Nana would be brave with an apple, but she was still getting over the Cucumber Essence she had for lunch. He heeeeee. Ha haaaaa. Whoo hoo haa.
We all had a go with the bow and arrow set. Even my mama. And with several little (smaller) boys standing admiringly in the distance ~ being not quite old enough themselves to work a bow and arrow,
Jack was surely admired by all on this his very special 9th birthday. 9 full trips around the Sun. Wow.
Has it really been that long?
I think it has. I am so proud of my eldest son. He is a wonderful little human being.
