Eight is an exciting age. At our home it's especially great since it happens to be the age that the kiddos get to start either Cub Scouts or Activity Day Girls, and also the age when our children get baptized (I think there will be a baptism post to follow).
For Brook's 8th b-day, he got to enjoy this delicious cake!!
With his amazing (and young;) parents and family.
Maybe even more fun than eating cake with his super cool parents, he also got to go with everyone to Chuck E Cheese's for a fun evening out. I know Chuck E Cheese's might seem (be) a little ghetto, but it has always been such a perfect place for our family--with our size and range of ages. It's big enough that there's enough to do for an hour or two, but small enough that everyone for the most part can roam around on their own.
And of course the cousins got to join which made it that much more exciting!!
They had a great time playing some games.
Visiting and eating pizza.
Watching Brooks open presents.
And just having some good plain fun!
Glad you had a great b-day Brookerhood!! We sure love you in our family and are happy to see you growing up into such a nice little gentleman:-).
