Well, my littlest buddy turned 5 not too long ago… well, sort of long ago… 2 months ago. But I already explained that one.
So, just take a moment and look at him! Look at this peanut! Doesn't he look extra sophisticated now that he is 5! He waited and waited and waited for this day to come. I can't tell you how many times he has said "Sam, are you so happy that I'm 5 now?" "Sam, are you so happy that I'm getting bigger now?" "Sam, are you so glad that I'm growing up?"Charlie kind of had his heart set on having a laser tag party ~ unfortunately, I had to talk him out of it because many of his friends wouldn't be old enough to play… and it would have just been messy. So, we decided to do a redo of our successful party from last year - We went to Big Gym (also known by Knoxvillians as Tatarus).
From what I could see from behind my lens, everyone had a ball.
Charlie and his curly headed twin, Bennett.So excited Yuke got to come to the party… Yuke lives THIRTY minutes away now :( No more yelling for each other from off the back deck (whaaaaaah!)
This handsome little guy is Jack ~ the son of Richie's lifelong friend, Ted.Sam's friend, Eric
This is Yuke's sweet mama and precious baby brother, Rhett.
Sam and Gracen having fun in the foam pit ~ precious.
Sweet friends from school
These two are killin' ME! This is Lisa Forester. She and Sam ADORE each other…. to the point that I kind of have to keep an extra close eye on them … cuz they get a little too lovey sometimes. Craziness!
Scooby Doo cake for my big boy this year!
Make a wish sweet boy!
This last picture is from the birthday celebration we had with Richie's family. Couldn't let this fabulous photo go to waste!
