Happy 8th Birthday, Harrison!
We celebrated early because Elizabeth will be at camp on his birthday and she wanted to be here (and who will make the cake if she isn't here?).
Stromboli was requested for his lunch; then we opened his gifts.
A really cool Star Wars drone that is most definitely too old for him, but not too old for big brother and him.
Phoebe's gift to him was a Star Wars ship of some kind.
And a new bike!
We finally took the training wheels off his old one a few months ago, and he was more than ready for a bigger bike. And we got it for a good price at the Toys R Us going-out-of-business sale.
He wanted Minecraft grass blocks made out of brownies as his 'cake.'
And he wanted to go to some gardens with mom for his birthday, so he and I went to the Japanese Tea Gardens on this very hot Sunday afternoon. (so hot)
It was super fun to be with just him exploring the gardens. He's enjoyed the nature book we did for school called Plantlife in Field and Garden by Arabella Buckley. I think that made him interested in plants and flowers.
Phoebe dressed him up the other day as a hunchback.
Liz is baking Harrison's brownies and showing the kids old Vines. I think I figured out that Vines are to my kids what commercials were to me. They quote Vines all the time and I remember we would quote these short clips from commercials, or maybe from movies (Monty Python and the Holy Grail, anyone?). It was fun to see them enjoying something together.
