Happy Birthday Carter!



Today Carter sprung out of bed at 6:30 am to declare he was no longer SIX! Turning 7 is pretty important!

He came downstairs to find a couple of presents - a new bicycle and a basketball!



We had his birthday party last weekend at a store called Ridemakerz. This place is similar to Build-a-Bear, but instead of stuffed animals, the kids built their own street cars! It was a lot of fun!

Here are the boys building their cars...

Here are the boys showing of their finished cars...

Gathered around to open gifts...


I wrote a letter for Carter to put in his memory book. You can click the image to read it.


Tonight, we have the start of Pinewood Derby in Cubscouts. Tomorrow is the big Derby Race, and he's super excited about that. I have some pictures I'll post this weekend of him making his car. Sunday, we'll be celebrating his birthday with a family dinner here - he chose spaghetti with Grandma's special meat sauce as his birthday dinner!! Yes, this is the child who only used to have about 5 things he'd eat without gagging - turning 7 really IS a big deal! We've come SO far.... :)
