Fifteen

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.

Dancing Newbie

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.

Meeting of the Generations

After the zoo we went to visit Grandmother. Their only living great-grandparent.

She was fairly aware at the time, remembering me, so that helped make the visit go smoothly and well.

Thunderer just wanted to bring her random objects and have Grandmother share stories about them. What’s nice is that she didn’t seem to notice Thunderer kept bringing her the same things.

It was a precious encounter. I’m thankful that we were able to stop by.
