A couple days after celebrating Molly's birthday, we got to celebrate Bode turning 7! This kid looks forward to his birthday perhaps more than any of our kids. He woke up asking to open presents right away, so we let him open a few before school.
Bo was very excited about his new electric Razor scooter and BB gun. I was actually a little nervous about the BB gun idea, but it has turned out to be so much fun. The entire family likes it!
New fishing pole from his grandma and grandpa and grandma. His nana and papa sent him a fishing vest and supplies to go along with it!
For his birthday party we just invited a bunch of his friends over and had a pizza and movie party. We just recently finished our basement and didn't have much furniture down there so it was perfect. I remember walking by the pile of shoes and jackets by the front door and feeling grateful that Bode has so many awesome friends to come celebrate with him.
The three lone ladies holding their own with all those crazy boys!
I was totally cracking up at how Bode chose to lay at the 3 girls feet during the movie-- smart boy! ;)
Bode chose Tucano's for his birthday dinner the following night and requested his favorite chocolate bundt cake.
Bode's 7th birthday questionnaire:
He's our goofy, energetic, fun-loving, free-spirited kid. He's also a crazy athlete, and smart, sweet, and sensitive at the same time. Bode is an awesome brother who is always looking out for others-- especially for his little sister. Sean and I are really proud of him and the progress he's made in school this year-- especially with reading. He's always saying things (particularly in family prayers) that blow Sean and I away. Overall, he's just a really great kid and we're so happy he's a part of our family.
Finally, here are the pics we took to celebrate Bo turning seven! I basically just followed him around outside and made him stop and smile for me. :)
I actually really love this picture of him because it shows his personality so well. He was totally goofing around posing like this and teasing me for taking pictures of him.
Love you, Bo!!!
