8th Birthday!

Last Thursday we celebrated Brennan's 8th birthday! I can't believe how big he is getting...sigh. I think he had a fun birthday celebration. The night before his birthday he got to have his 2 best friends over to spend the night. It wasn't long before these boys found some frogs after a recent rain:)

They were so sweet and loved playing with Brooks! Brook also turned 7 months on Brennan's birthday-they were both born on the 18th:) I am going to do a separate post about his sweet 7 month self!

Brooks liked playing with the big boys too!

Grady is soooo funny! He loves to fish!! He was holding the mobile for Brooks and Brooks would grab at the animals so Grady said "I got a fish on the line!"

We also went to the neighbors and fed the chickens-the had so much fun!

Tiger went along, too.

They got to play with sparklers when it got dark.

Brennan got a mini electric guitar and a mini amp for his birthday. He also got a Nintendo DS. I actually got the DS for free from the hospital when Brooks was in the NICU. It was awesome, for Christmas they had this huge room of toys and you got these tickets and could spend them on whatever and they were offering the DS so I grabbed one. For his screen time he usually chooses Minecraft so I was hesitant to get him another game-we limit as it is, but we will be going on a trip in August so I figured he could use it in the car, it will give him one more thing to do then. So anyway, I would say he got some pretty awesome presents!

After he opened presents, they had waffles for breakfast and played some more. My mom's friend was having a garage sale and she had some books for Brennan so we stopped by there. Each boy got a book, so they were pretty excited about that. We ate lunch at McDonald's which is always a hit!

Brennan decided he wanted to play laser tag and arcade games so we went to a local place that has both. They played some arcade games first and then played laser tag and then more arcade games-phew! 

Right before laser tag.

It was hard to get pictures because they were running around and I was following them while wearing Brooks and it was dark. But you can see Brody to the left shooting:)

Here, Brennan is on the lookout while Brody is shooting.

More games!

Then we went for ice cream at a local ice cream parlor. Brooks was soooo good the whole day! I just wore him in the carrier during laser tag and while they played games and he loved watching all the action. He was ready to go home and take a good nap in his bed though by the time we were done:)

Then back home to play some more!

Brennan wanted Imo's for dinner and after Imo's, he wanted to get more presents with a gift card he got for his birthday to Target-as if he needs any more toys!:)

He did get Disney Infinity which I wasn't super crazy about because it's another video game, but it was super cheap and he just has to choose what he will spend him time playing. I did buy Mario Chess because he has been wanting to learn and I thought it would be a fun way for him, but I need someone to teach me! I am in the process of learning-thank goodness for youtube!

So overall, I think he had a really fun birthday! I tried to make it lots of fun. He had his party on Saturday and he had a lot of fun there too:)
