Brooks had been waiting for a "friend party" for quite a while. For some reason it never seemed to work out or be the right timing. His 7th b-day, though, finally changed that. Admittedly, it was probably not a conventional birthday party. In fact, B's awesome older siblings really ran the whole thing.
They taught Brooks and his friends how to make paper Chinese lanterns.
Led a game of apple smashing--with extremely over-ripe/rotten apples that we had sitting around in the garage.
(The parents may have thought we were a bit crazy, but the kids sure seemed to have fun with it!)
Then Porter and James organized a game of soccer.
Everyone enjoyed pizza!
Brooks enjoyed some presents!
That is, REALLY enjoyed some presents;).
(Great day for this fantastic kid!)
Then everyone finished off with some fun upstairs.
And tasty ice cream bar cake. Yum!
And as if that weren't enough, Brooks scored a second time, with another small family party.
He got a new fleece blanket from G-ma Loo.
Some other fun prizes.
And a second round of birthday treats. Nice!
Love this smart, funny, silly, thoughtful kid!! Our family wouldn't be the same without him:).
