Remember a few post back how I said the 4th child doesn’t get as big of a birthday party? Yeah, the 1st child is still getting the celebration of his lifetime for every birthday. Maybe that comes with age, or possibly the time of year of his birthday where we are in need of great celebration, but our oldest has had so many many more birthday parties than that of his 8 years of age. So here goes with 4 more birthday parties:
Party # 1 He almost always shares with his wonderful Aunt Jenny over Memorial Day weekend because that is when my side of the family gets together. I didn’t take a lot of pictures that day but here is the one good one of him opening his gifts around the campfire. Party #2 was his friends party, which our great neighbors shared with us. Their son is in Jacob’s class at school and his birthday is one day apart from Jacob. We were able to have it at the local gymnastic club and split the costs and work, which was great! And because it was family style all the kiddos had friends their age in attendance. Party #3 Was our at home family party and Jacob really wanted a store-bought cake so you can see he got his hunting cake with real duck call included. And last Party #4 was supper and play time at the park with grandma in Carrington. What an amazing way to celebrate 8 years!
