I'm sure most of us did not appreciate being 6 at the time, but it certainly seems to be a great age! It is fun to see the excitement that a birthday & Christmas can bring to someone who is at an age who is old enough to understand what is going on, what comes next & is still entranced by the magic & wonder of it all. To say Brandon has been eagerly awaiting his birthday would be quite the understatement! Actually he just recently told me that his favorite holidays are Easter, Christmas & his birthday... I tried explaining that technically his birthday isn't a holiday, but I don't think that registered in the least!
First on the agenda was a party with his friends... he was excited to just have a kid party where they got to run around, play, have cake & get goodie bags, of course!
After the kid party was a little family dinner party... tacos & enchiladas were on the menu.
Cousin Allison was there for both parties... & Gram, Grandpa, Aunt Natalie & Uncle Dave joined us too...
... & Uncle Chris flew in from Portland just for the event (... well maybe Christmas had something to do with it, but we are always happy that he is able to be here for Brandon's birthday)!
On his actual birthday, we had a little family celebration at the nearby bowling alley (since it was hit last year!).
They liked their shoes...
YEP, it is good to be 6...just ask Brandon!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRANDON...
