Philip, Caleb and Joshua went camping with another dad and his sons on Friday night as Phase 1 of the birthday celebration. Then we all assembled here Saturday for lunch, play time and cake and ice cream. It was low-key, but everyone had a good time, even the three year olds. :)
I can't believe Caleb is 8 (or will be in a few days). As they say, the days have dragged, but the years have flown. There are so many great things about having an 8 year old. We are really enjoying the greater maturity and his ability to really participate with many activities. We're so thankful for him!
The birthday boys
Caleb kept laughing and the air from his nose blew out half the candles. The irony is that when he tried to blow the candles out, he had trouble!
Playing one of the new games Caleb received: Pathwords. He loves games that require thinking! And Joshua, well, he loves being Joshua.
Happy 8th Birthday, Caleb! We love you!
P.S. I love Philip, too. We're just not quite as excited at his getting old. :)
P.P.S. I will be making Philip a cheesecake one of these days. Probably.
