Birthday Shenanigans

This past weekend, we had a terrific time celebrating Connor's 7th birthday!

Adam's mom also has a birthday around this same time, just a few days after Connor's. So on Thursday evening, we took everyone to the Predators game. Sadly, they lost - but we still had a lot of fun!

Friday evening we just hung around the house, and we started Saturday morning with breakfast from Chick-fil-A (a family favorite!) We knew that Connor and Gram both would enjoy an afternoon together for both of their birthdays, so we dropped Connor off and headed to another Preds game for a few hours. This time they won!

After the game, we met up with Gram, Connor and my parents and sister at Rainforest Cafe for little man's special birthday dinner. He loved the restaurant and all of the rainforest decor!

After dinner, we headed back to the house for presents! He loved all the fun things that we all picked out for him. 

One of the things that Adam has done for Connor every year is "adopt" an animal for him through World Wildlife Fund. You get a stuffed animal when you do, so he has all of them on his bed. This year we picked out the elephant, and he loved it!

Adam and I also got him a Home Depot work bench two birthdays ago, so this year we got him a toolbox and another set of a bunch of really awesome tools. He is so excited about them!

On Sunday, we had all of his friends from the neighborhood over to have some cake and then play in the back yard since it was a reasonably nice day. He had a blast!

It was such a fun weekend! It's crazy to think he was just a 4-year-old little squirt when I met him, and now he's a little man!
