PT's Birthday

Hey there we have been busy and I have not posted since the 23rd of July, so I am going to do a lot of catching up this week so stay posted!

Well For PT's Birthday I asked him what he wanted to do and gave him a laundry list of choices and the one he chose was the park. So I called M and had her meet us there with her cute daughters and all.

We made sandwiches, bought chips and instead of ice cream or cake, we had sno-cones, we packed up our snocone machine and brought that and luckily there was power at the pavillion. That way when ice melts it's not that big of a deal, or near as messy as ice cream.

We opened presents there and he got a football and a softball set so the park was a great setting for the gifts as well! When O got home that night, he gave him his gift, a box of 22 bullets and later that week took him and B shooting, PT has wanted to do this since last October when the girls and I went through hunters education and had to practice.

When I asked him if he had a good birthday he said it was the best and very fun.


Here is where I am going to Share those moments that just come whether it be night or day and we take the time to seize every opportunity-

Just a quick chuckle; I was putting my sons down for the night and little Bogan asked for another drink of water, and I said no you have already had a large glass and used the bathroom-he said oh yeah-so I chuckled and said haha your plans to stay awake have been foiled, and he said yeah Mom you folded my plans.

The other night my boys were playing with their legos and when I walked by, PT had made a pyramid and asked me where the little guy was that he had, I said I don't know? And then he showed me he had hidden it under the pyramid-I thought and then grabbed that moment- I went and got out the history book and opened up to the ancient Egypt era when pyramids were built and why it was similar to what he did. He was amazed at the significance. We read and read and learned about them for 2 days.
