It's been a busy old week of birthday activities for our 7 year old. Yeah, 7!! How can my wee man be 7 already?! It's like someone fast forwarded my life.
His hactual birthday was Monday, we were wakened very early to be told he was now 7 and to get on with opening presents! He got Skylanders for the Wii from us, as well as lego, books, transformers, pyjamas and a magic set. He got Lego, Scotland strip and tracksuit & Skylanders storage from others. He was delighted and there was nothing he didn't want or like (thankfully!)
By 3:15pm when I collected him he was excited about going out for dinner too (it's been a bit of a tradition that we go out on bithdays) so we headed into town to meet James after work and go for some food. Chiquitos was his choice as it almost always is and considering he'd eaten a burger king, he put away some amount of food (5 fajitas to be exact - think he has hollow legs) It was a nice evening.
Yesterday (Friday) was the last day of school for the Easter holidays and I had decided in my wisdom to have a few friends over to the house. Only a few friends became 14 including Kory & Krystal. I am so pleased the weather was in our favour and it was warm and dry enough to let them outside to play.
They played football and with the garden toys, we fed them pizza, chicken, sausage rolls and potato wedges about 6pm, we did his birthday cake and played Just Dance on the Wii and soon enough it was time for most of the kids to be collected. All but 6 went away. There were 4 staying for a sleepover!! We had Jamie, Daniel, Leah, Amy and of course Kory & Krystal.
They played in the garden with some silly string for a while then came in, got into pyjamas, played on the Wii again, had wrestling fights, ate toast then went to get settled in for the night. It was nearly midnight that they went to sleep and were back up at 6am *yawn*
They all left about 10am having had (I think) a great time. Kory got stuck into opening his presents and once again did so so well. His friends know him well too, mostly getting things they know he's into.
One very happy and very exhausted little boy!
