David had a pretty awesome birthday weekend! His actual birthday was on Friday, a school day for him (with tests and everything...) but he had a cub scout meeting after school where they worked on tying knots and whittling with their pocket knives (super cool boy stuff) AND gym night with the Squires! Gym night is all about fun and the boys get together to play basketball and dodge ball in the gym... and oh yes, there was pizza too. Saturday he had a Tae Kwon Do tournament in Giddings so he got to spend the day with his Dad going to that. He did well... 4th place well, so no trophies but he is also in a new age bracket, the 11-13 year olds, and he is one of the youngest. Read: he had only been 11 for one day!
Sunday evening, we marked his birthday with a party. We invited his Grandparents, his God Parents, and best friend Courage and his family. It has been our traditional gathering of friends and family and we were lucky to have nice weather and an enjoyable time at the park. I'm so glad my friend Kim suggested we take this family picture. That is always a good idea!
David requested the same cake we've been making for a few years... it's a cinnamon cake and I was so happy to turn the baking over to Emily. She got the cake ready with David while I grocery shopped and prepared sandwiches and such. I love having big kids!
And here is a great family picture of David's buddy Courage and his family. I only wish we got pics of David with his God Parents!!!
And finally, the birthday video:
