birthday weekend

We had a great weekend up north. Really, really fun :)

The kids got to swim Saturday afternoon, which they adored (like always). :)

After swim, we headed to Chris' grandmother's house for the birthday celebration. I had made a Lego cake the night before that came out pretty well. :)

I think the highlight of the weekend for all of us was Cam getting his present from grandma and grandpa...the much anticipated Lego Volkswagen.

Cameron started the set at 11:00 on Sunday. He didn't finish until 8:30 that night (it was an age 16+, so you can imagine how many pieces it had!). What a trooper! In hindsight, I think I would have made him split it up into two days, but I'm not even sure he would have allowed that. :) He loved every single minute of it. :)

Chris and my gift to him was a rocket. We took it to a nearby field and had fun launching it hundreds of feet into the air. :)

We could have stayed longer, but work and school beckoned us home. :)

p.s. I was also excited because during playtime in grandma's dress up box, we found Kendall's Halloween costume for this year...a flapper girl! :)

Wow--we were so impressed with that Lego Volkswagen bus. He did an amazing job--such patience and perseverance!

And a flapper for Halloween--how cute! Her hair almost looks like the style of the flapper.

Okay, that is some dedication with the Legos! Did he do it by himself or have help the whole time???

Looks like a great weekend, how nice :)

Love the legos! Sounds just like Ryan. They would probably love hanging out side by side in their own little world of legos : ) ~ Cindy
