Lego time!

Paul decided he wanted a Lego birthday party this year.  We searched Pinterest and come up with a few of our own ideas.  He invited the kids from his primary class and his best friend Kaelan to come celebrate.  We started out by watching The Lego Movie, then we opened presents.  After lunch of chicken nuggets and noodles(per the birthday boy's request), and Lego paper covered juice boxes.  each kid got a cake, some marshmallows, frosting and sprinkles to create their own Lego cake. We made our own Lego pinata, and the kids destroyed it to get the candy out.  We had a Lego building contest, then I let Paul open a few of his presents to play with his friends.  It was a great party!

Birthday boy - number 7!

Paul's one wish for his birthday this year was to go fishing.  I'm still not entirely certain where that came from, but we went with it.  Grandpa and Grandma Golding bought everything he needed for a successful fishing day and we found a kid's fishing event in our area. With a few tips from the pro's (ahem, not his parents) he was able to cast quite far - once even hooking someone else line from across the pond. It was a dream come true for him, and we have been several times since.

 His birthday fell on Memorial Day this year, so we were able to celebrate on his birthday.   From us he got a watch, hot wheels track, superhero underwear, books, and a Lego set.

He got money from Grandma and Grandpa Miller, and Aunt Elaine and Uncle Gordon which he used to buy a remote control car.

May 2014

Having church be over at 11:30, leaves a LOT of time in the afternoon.  We decided to have a Lego vehicle building contest one afternoon.  It was epic. 
 This mothers day I got roses and chocolate dipped strawberries - my favorite!  Plus a yummy meal Jared made.  He is a wonderful experimental chef - I love when he cooks!
 May also means field day, which is highly anticipated around our house.  It was very fun, we are lucky to be at such a great school!
