June 27 was Miles’ 6th Birthday. We surprised him with several family members waiting for him at the movie theater to see Cars 2 in 3D.
I made the birthday boy a pineapple upside-down cake at his request. He’s not a fan of frosting. (He certainly doesn’t get this from me).
I really like his photo. As my sister-in-law said, it really shows us for who we are since it isn’t too posey and w are all pretty relaxed and being ourselves.
Jason put up a swing on our big 100+ year old oak tree in our back yard. After I taught the kids how to do “the spider”, they then had to show their Uncle John how it is done.
Miles also had a kid party. Jason make a big homemade slip n slide with plastic tarp and pool noodles. Here is Miles behind his frosted cake. Frosting? Yuck!
The other two in our family with summer birthdays are my new sister-in-law Kris and me. We met at Long Grove, IL in a nice Italian restaurant for lunch. Getting together for each others’ birthdays is a very nice way to spend some family time.
After lunch Jason, the kids and I walked around the shopping area of Long Grove. The last store we walked into was a furniture store. And what do you know, they had the bedroom set of our dreams there! It was also, amazingly, a good price and very good quality. So we went home and thought about it (not for long) and decided to go for it. We just got the furniture shipped a couple of weeks ago and LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I’ll have to take pics soon. Of course, now I see that we “need” some new lamps to go on our night stands. Ha ha!
