I am still behind...so, I am just now posting Seven's 5th birthday...On April 11, 2012, Seven turned 5 years old. Here's a picture of my adorable 5 year old at his birthday party!
Seven decided he wanted a Spider-Man birthday party. So, I decided we would go on a bug hunt. No worries, not a REAL bug hunt. I hid close to 50 plastic bugs in Granny's backyard and put a star with Spider-Man's picture on it near the bugs. Not too close, but near. You can see the ladybug on the fence and the green star with Spider-Man on it nearby.
On a log, I put a spider and a scorpion. I was proud of this hide :) They almost looked real!There is an ant and a green star with Spider-Man nearby.
A purple star with Spider-Man and a grasshopper peeking out of the brick.
Piper was collecting the bugs AND the stars...
I don't know of Piper and Finn were using teamwork to find bugs or competing against each other to be the first to find the bugs.
Granny printed off pictures of each of the bugs. On each bug paper, there was a splat. The splats were how many of that particular bug that was hidden in her backyard. When the kids found the bugs, they would put them on the splat and then they could see how many there were left to find. We found all the bugs, but one. Not too bad.
Here are Seven's Spider-Man cupcakes made by my wonderful husband Jeremy!
And Seven getting ready to be sung to so he can make a wish and blow out the candle.
I just had to include this picture of Rilian. If you have ever been around him when he eats dessert, you know that he SAVORS his dessert! There is no other word for how he eats it. He takes his good ol' time and REALLY enjoys it. I love the expression on his face...it's like he is thinking, "What's the big deal? I'm just enjoying my cupcake."
Happy Birthday Seven! I have enjoyed your first 5 years of life. You never cease to amaze me! You are very intelligent, quite entertaining, and a humorous little boy. I could not imagine life without you!
