I can’t believe it has been 7 years!! My sweet boy who used to love bubble blowing, making funny faces, eating fuzz, and so much more…Is now a super smart, science fanatic, who loves new challenges and to make mommy and daddy happy, who loves to read, to snuggle for hours, to play ‘spys’ and board games, etc…. He has grown up so fast and I am trying to savor all I can of these lovely years that slip away in an instant. I want to freeze time because I know that I only have a few years left of his sweet innocence.
We celebrated his 7th birthday this past weekend with an oh so awesome ‘spy party’. Such a great time! It started with amazing invites made by his ‘techno’ Daddy -
Next came the spy camp preparation:
Then came the super-secret spy recruits…shhhhh…super secret!
Everybody got a cute ‘satchel’ where they each received some glasses, a mustache, pen and paper, their weapon (water gun), and a magnifying glass:
And who can forget the secret badges and training that took place:
The 5 levels of training:
1: Lazer tag
2: Bomb destroying…
3: Obstacle Course
4: Target shooting (with water guns)
5: Making a secret potion (making homemade icecream in a sandwich bag)
ALL of our trainees passed their tests and they all made it to be Level 5 Spies by the end of the day. What FUN!!! Elijah celebrated even more by having his best friend spend the night for the VERY first time!!!
Elijah and Samuel the morning of April 1st – they did GREAT!!!
Thank you Courtney for spending the night – helping prepare, enjoy, and clean up!! You were a Godsend, We love you!!
