What do you get your mother as a first birthday present ever?
A photo catchup book.
Redflare helped pick out and arrange the pictures to help catch up on 35 years of lost moments and pictures. A heavy task.
I think the tears of joy show that it was well received. 😉
My birthday cake gathering of littles.
All eager to help dive in.
What I didn’t know, is that on this day, on a website I hadn’t even looked at for 13 years, things were about to become amazingly and wonderfully different.
This would go with the dancing Newbie post from a while back.
Here on the field trip, she’s ready to let it fly!
Now his birthday was actually earlier this month, but had to have time to process the pictures. 🙂
We went from this…
His review of his birthday?
“The best birthday ever.”
That’ll do. 😀
It’s really hard to believe that this little guy here…
is now 15.
His birthday was officially on June 1, where we almost had to call the fire brigade for his cake.
He’s also wearing a new shirt he got. Themed from Arrow, a TV series that he enjoys a lot.
I think he had a good birthday weekend though. School let out on the 2nd, where he got to go to a sleepover, and while the weekend was hot, they mostly got to relax around the house.
Our annual Red Lobster trip had to be postponed, but now that it’s summer, we can go during the week too.
I’m sure this will become a standard reaction GIF for me, but I wanted to share the origins.
They had a slingshot station set up for the little ones. Some of them, like Newbie, I wondered if she would accidentally slingshot herself.
The first time she was… up at bat? and let the ball go she accidentally beaned one of the ladies that was holding one end of the slingshot.
Her next attempt was this one, and she was very happy that it went flying as far as it did.
This is the Newbie victory dance.
Aside from the cow statue, she was also interested in climbing the horses.
Can’t ignore the opportunity for the title now can I?
