The grill guru, Daddy. The kids love ANYTHING Kent grills but I have to agree, the ribs were fantastic.
Of course, our little Henry bug was there. I think he enjoyed the party.
I had this great plan to buy re-lighting candles. I thought Ty would really enjoy it and we'd all get a good laugh. I wasn't counting on my big boy blowing them out so hard that NONE of them re-lit.
Nana and Papaw came by (Papaw ate with us and Nana made it in time for cake) and delivered the 1st gift of the evening. It's a replica telescoping forklift with cranks and dials to make the boom move and interchangeable forks and buckets. It was a huge hit!
We decided to get Ty a GoBible. It's a MP3 player that's loaded with the KJV version of the Bible but it can be searched by topic (Love, Anger, etc), story (Noah, Adam, etc), chapter and verse. Madisyn has one and we've really been amazed at how much she has learned just from listening to it on her own. Ty was pretty excited about this as well.
This is one of my favorite pictures from Ty's birth. Madisyn seemed so big then but now I realize that she was just a baby herself. They don't always get along but I'm so proud of how well they compliment each other. They are often mistaken for twins and it won't be long before Madisyn will be the "little" sister.
I never imagined when Ty was born he would be the big brother to 3 little brothers. At birth he weighed in at 8 lbs 10 oz, at 68 lbs now he's still big for his age. I can't believe how blessed we are to have him in our lives. He is a joy and is growing into a wonderful young man. I so wish I had the work ethic and Bible knowledge as a 7 year old that he does. Sure he has ups and downs but he is really a very good boy that I love dearly.
Happy Birthday, Ty!
