Andrew's 7!!!

For Andrew's birthday this year, he wanted pizza and to go swimming. Luckily it was warm enough! We have loved having a pool, it's a great place to go and relax AND of course have lots of fun together as a family. Sierra LOVES the pool...yes, she's tied to a rope. The water was a little cool for mommy so I sat on the edge, we have this GREAT step that the kids can play on, it's only about waist deep on Sierra, which is perfect, but she doesn't pay attention to where the edge is....obviously, she's only 1...so, we put her in her floatie and she can wander and play and walk off the edge, then all I have to do is pull her back to me! Don't worry, we made ABSOLUTE sure she can't tip it or climb out of it, and she's really never too far away.
Ben enjoys just floating and chillin'.

Look at my cute family! I love them! They are so good to each other. I can't believe Andrew's 7!!

For dessert he wanted an ice cream cake. We love Cold Stone's cakes so I was ALL for it! Great choice Andrew!!

He also got his traditional personal cake. Except this year instead of a number he wanted his first initial...so, that's what he got!

We Love you Andrew! We are so happy to have you as a part of our family. You're an amazing big brother and Sierra follows you EVERYWHERE!!!

I wanted to put in a few of your favorite things right now, but you have a love for EVERYTHING! Your favorite color would be blue...or is it magenta today? Outside you love to swim, or play soccer. Inside you love to play video games, or board games, or play with Ben and Sierra. You enjoy reading too and learning A LOT. I guess you could say your favorite thing to learn at school is Math, that and learning a new language. You've decided you want to learn all the languages so that you can talk to everyone...all over the world. You're a great friend and make friends easily.

Happy Birthday Andrew!! We look forward to another amazing year and helping you prepare to be baptized! One thing you're looking forward too....that and going to Cub Scouts!!
