S-E-V-E-N

a few weeks ago something totally crazy happened...
my first baby turned S-E-V-E-N.
we celebrated with all kinds of fun,
starting with doughnuts with his class!
 after school we headed straight to the lake!
we took an afternoon boat ride
(pardon this camera phone picture)
 griffin celebrated his seven years of life
by jumping off chimney rock!


in case you want to see him in action...


we came back from the lake and had a "fake campout" blowout!!!!
i got that invitation idea from a blog,
but i can't remember which one.
sorry mystery blog mom!
we set up a few tents in the backyard...
 eating hotdogs and smores...
we had 19 kids (17 of which were boys).
they played flag football, flashlight tag,
and had a wild and crazy time!
(with an emphasis on wild and crazy)

michael told them a story about the "birmingham bobcat"
that fascinated them and actually kept them still for 10 minutes!!
 opening some presents...
 he got an alabama football uniform and decided
to test out the helmet with poppy!
happy seventh birthday to one of the most fun,
happy,
creative,
friendly,
deep-thinking,
kind,
adventurous,
playful,
enthusiastic
people i know! 
i am blessed to be your mommy!
