He is also stubborn, forgets to do his dishes after every meal and hates to clean his room. But hey - who doesn't? Overall he is pretty stinking amazing. And last week he turned 9 years old.
We invited our new friend, Nathan, over to play for the day. We ate lunch (fetticunni alfredo - Cole's request) and then wenr to the pool.
After swimming Cole and Nathan got special birthday cupcakes from Gigis.
Then Colson was off on his date. He had won a free meal from the Elephant Bar for doing his reading in the library's summer reading program.
After dinner they went to the Lego store so Cole could spend every last penny of his birthday money (but I do need to say he gave $20 of his money to his big brother so that he could make a purchase for which he had been saving). He bought some Hero Factory sets.
They came home and opened our gift and a gift from the Lees. The Lees also skyped in (on MY ipad no less) for the present opening and Happy Borthday singing and candle blowing part of the night.
