A Weekend With Bubs, Beans & Squishy

We had a fun weekend with cousins. Mandy and Steve were so lucky to go on a trip to Europe and we got to watch their kids for the weekend of the 24th. I was a little nervous to have six kids in the house, but it turned out to be so much fun!! It was lots of fun having more girls around here. I got to paint toe nails & curl & braid hair this weekend too.

The Alfaro's, our fun neighbors, invited the kids over to play on a totally cool, home-made, SUPER COOL slip-n-slide the first night - wow it was so much fun!!

The next day got sorta cloudy in the morning so we just hung around the house for a little bit, but that didn't stop them from having fun. Look at this cool fort they built - I LOVE it when they do that!!

Then it cleared up a bit so we headed to the park.

I was a bit nervous about how Sunday would go. We normally don't play video games on Sunday, but this Sunday we sorta cheated and let them play games to help keep them quietly entertained ;)

Then we had Grandma & Grandpa over for a quick BBQ and our weekend was over.

Seven is Super!!

Yesterday was Hayden's 7th Birthday!! Tried to make it a fabulous day!! He woke up to his door decorated - thanks to a neat tradition from his aunt Mandy.

Then he got to go shopping with the whole family at lunch time and got take out from Chic-Fil-A!!! YUMMMMYYYYY!!!

And to top it off we had some great friends over for a BBQ Dinner. I think he had a fabulous day.

Hayden you are such a sweet boy. You have a kind and BIG heart. You are very thoughtful at such a young age. I am trying to learn from you. You never want anyone to be angry at you and you are quick to say sorry if that happens. You like to keep up with your brothers but you're just fine being the youngest too.

Here are your birthday abc's. You are Affectionate, Benevolent, Creative, Darling, Energetic, Friendly, Giving, Helpful, Inspiring, Joyful, Kind, Lively, Marvelous, Nice, Optimistic, Personable, Quizzical, Rowdy, Super, Thoughtful, Unique, Valiant, Whimsical, Xstreme, Youthful, and Zesty!!

We love you and are so glad you are part of our family!!
