We had a busy weekend celebrating my oldest's 9th birthday. Wow, how'd that happen?? Do I really have a 9 year old!? I can't possibly be old enough for that to be true.
He's into skating these days so the big gifts were a new deck and a grinding rail (plus a new helmet to save my nerves). He also received a ramp from his Auntie and some new clothes to look the part. He's been skating non-stop since he opened his gifts and has a few scrapes and bruises to prove it. He is a braver soul than I. I fall over just looking at a skateboard.
He's too cool these days for balloons and streamers (wouldn't even let me put "Happy Birthday" on his cake!), so we had a low-key affair with friends and family. The weather was rather odd Saturday: sun, rain, sun, rain, sun, hail, sun. We made our way in and out of the drizzle several times and partied-on nonetheless. Even had our own little version of some March Madness. It's was lots of fun and he was happy so that's all that really matters.
Here a some highlights:
How was your weekend?
