Birthday #7....LEGOS!!!

Reed's growing up.  I can't believe he's 7 this year.  He had a rough week with an ear infection so he didn't feel great on his actual birthday but with meds he recovered in time to still have his birthday sleepover.  He is starting to really get into Legos so we decided to do a Lego theme.  I really had fun with it.  Reed came up with lots of ideas too.

Happy 7th Birthday!

When each kids arrived "we" assembled a Lego car. I say we because this was really harder than the kids could handle.  Wes has gotten pretty good at it though.  :)

Then it was off to the races.  I found this piece of vinyl siding with 3 "lanes" at Lowes and it was perfect for our track.

I was so excited about how the cake turned out.  Store-bought cake modified with Legos.  Lego guys holding the candles.  The kids all loved it.

Liquid Legos...Reed's own "creation."  He came up with the formula himself.  ;)

While waiting for popcorn the kids stopped to watch Wes play Angry Birds on his phone.  Ha ha. 

Lego movie: The Adventures of Clutch Powers
There was the usual sword/light-saber battles and baseball games played throughout the evening.  Sadly one of our sweeties had a baseball injury that required stitches.  He was so brave and I'm very proud of him.  Just sorry he got hurt.  His mom says he's doing well now and it even looks like it's already starting to heal. 

We love you Reed.  Can't believe you are so grown up.  You bring so much joy into our lives.  Your passion for life is contagious.  Can't wait to see what God has planned for your future.

Looks like a great time was had by all. Caiden and Dawson had a great time. Dawson is looking forward to staying the whole time the next one around. :-) Chelle, you did an incredible job with the decos and I love the cake! I need to hire you for the next party. Happy Birthday Reed - we love you buddy!
