Well, it turns out turning 9 can be pretty epic! Ben got to spend his birthday with morning coffee & donuts, opening presents, time at the pool with friends, his favorite dinner & cake, and then we even had an epic backyard birthday party with a waterslide! Everyone had a blast, and thank you to everyone for the cards, calls, gifts & well-wishes! We have one very lucky boy!
Dad got donuts and lattes to start the day off right!
His new school uniform!
His favorite gift was once again, a stuffed fox!
Fortnight "V-Bucks" were a big hit this year too!
Dad got an awesome remote control paper airplane set!
We enjoyed some time at the pool with friends in the afternoon!
Ben's dinner request was pork chops, mac & cheese, tater tots and triple chocolate cake!
Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day, after a string of soggy ones, and we had an AWESOME time renting this 20-foot water slide for the day! It was a great way to stay cool outside since our indoor parties are still limited these days! The pictures make the water slide look terrifying, but it really was so much fun for the kids AND the grown ups!!
We kept snacks to a minimum and enjoyed cupcakes with friends!
We even enjoyed some present opening on the lawn!
The gift of the century was his giant creeper! I love that this little guy hasn't TOTALLY grown up yet!
Happy Birthday buddy! We love you!
