Adam turns 7!!

Adam turned 7 years old on September 13th!  It's hard to believe he's 7!  He's growing up so fast!  His birthday was a school day, so no sleeping in for this guy (although, he is truly his father's son, and can't really sleep in.  Most mornings he's up between 6:30 and 7:00 - sometimes earlier!  Ugh!!)
He really wanted to have breakfast in bed, so we made him a funny face pancake and let him eat in our bed...
 Jackson joined him...
 We let him open one present before heading off to school.  He has become quite the Seahawks fan, so he was super excited to get this cool sweatshirt!
 We let him pick where he wanted to go for dinner.  He chose Red Robin.  He wasn't too sure about the singing part...
After dinner, we came home and he opened his presents.  Adam has really started to love Legos and Ninjago!  So, that's pretty much what he got for presents.

 And and Seahawks jersey!  He loves to look for his jersey during the games now.  He's always excited when Rice makes a good play!
Adam really wanted to have a Lego party to celebrate his birthday.  So, we went to the newly opened Lego store at Alderwood Mall, and bought several things of random legos and some surprise lego guys.  Everyone who came got to open a surprise guy, got a green lego board, and went at it building whatever they wanted too with legos!  Luckily the weather was beautiful, so we laid blankets outside on the grass and let them go for it!
 Soon Grandpa, dad and Jeff (Xander's dad) joined in the building!
 I wish we would have taken a picture of the finished products.  There was some very creative Lego building going on!
 After building with Legos for more than and hour, we had some cake.  I found some directions for a Lego cake on pinterest, so gave it a shot.
Turned out pretty good - huh?  Adam and his friends thought it was great - so that's all that matters!
 We did cake outside too!  We had to block a bit of a breeze that kept blowing the candles out!
 Then, Adam opened up his presents.  I think every single one was a Lego item. 

The party was a great success!  Everyone had a great time and got to go home with their Lego masterpiece!
I'm so proud of the young man Adam is growing up to be!  He is really enjoying school, and it's been so fun  (and frustrating) to watch him learn to read, and discover new and exciting things he can do!  He's getting super excited to be baptized next year!  It's amazing that he's getting to that age!  He saw the doctor for a checkup and continues to grow!  He was 4'2.5" tall (88th percentile) and 61 lbs, 6 oz in weight (87th percentile)  Based on his BMI he is in the 79th percentile of kids his age. 
It's so fun to watch him learn and grow!  I feel so lucky to be his mom!
