My Isaac-boy has turned 7! His birthday was drawn out a few days. We had a preliminary birthday party with his cousins in Bismark. We gave him his presents then. He only got two because he was having a friend birthday party a few weeks later and he we payed a lot for his party. He was a good sport and seemed to appreciate the presents we got him--especially his stuffed shark. The day we drove home from Bismark Mike took him and his brothers to Chili's (I already wrote about all this). Then on August 10th we had his birthday party. I just first want to say that my boys have somehow remained very appreciative. I just admire their ability to be happy with what they have and get. So that said, not a lot of Isaac's friends showed up. His birthday is at a difficult time of year with school just starting and new friends in his class and we had a hard time getting the invitations to some of the friends in the other classes. I am considering doing his next friend birthday party in January at his half birthday.
We only have friend birthday parties every three or four years so Mike and I agreed to pay more money for these parties than we would normally pay. Isaac chose trampoline world. It was so much fun! The boys have talk about it frequently since then and keep asking when we will go back. I don't have the heart to tell them that we probably won't go back since it is more expensive than I would pay just for fun. The kids got to spend about an hour and a half down on the floor jumping in foam pits and on the trampolines. Then we went upstairs and had cake and ice cream and opened presents.
We took tons of pictures but because everyone was bouncing, jumping, and running none of them turned out well. But here are some:
