Ty's 7th Birthday

 This weekend we celebrated Ty's 7th birthday. I've gotten so use to my baby being six. Now I'm a mom whose youngest is 7.  That's not cool. NOT COOL ROBERT FROST!!!! (please feel free to click on the link through Robert Frost to watch a super cute video.)
 This soon to be 7 year old loves to read. Auntie Mae and Uncle Kevin got him the newest Stink Moody book.
 He's excited to be opening Mario Kart 7 for DS from Nana and Papa. Can you just hear his little lisp in this picture?
 When asked by his Nana what he wanted for his birthday, he said, "A mini gumball machine to put in my room." Can you say "left field"? But guess what Nana got...
 A mini gumball machine for his room. And the old Brown-eyed charmer strikes again!

 Grandpa got little man a slip n slide, because we like to be versatile in our ways of beating the heat in Sacramento!
 Ty needed a hooded sweatshirt. And he needed a red one.  Because red is his favorite color. And when he grabs a sweatshirt for school, he only has pull over hoodies and he's always worried about messing up his hair.
 The brothers checking out his new stuff. I'm pretty sure Briggs's legs are 4x as long as Ty's.

 And 3x as long as mine.
 My boys are no strangers to the ubiquitous Minecraft craze that is sweeping the nation. So...
 ...this had to happen. And mom wasn't too happy about it. I'm not really a fan of cake decorating. But the boy wanted a minecraft cake! And you can't buy one of these at the Nugget Bakery. So I just put up with the nervous stress sweat that I break out in when I frost cakes and GOT IT DONE!!! Whatever...
 I think it's funny when he gets shy.
Notice he's already wearing his new sweatshirt. Little man had fun with Grandpa and Nana and Papa and hamburgers and chips and Italian Cream sodas for dinner.
