Birthday Boy

Luke turned 7 this past weekend.  We had his party a week early because he was at camp with Ryan and Grandpa Roger.  We started the weekend by stuffing the pinata with Great Grandpa Sam and Great Grandma Frieda.  IMG_9059

Between all of our company coming and going on Saturday, I quickly frosted the cake before all the kids arrived.  Luke requested a zucchini cake so I made a chocolate zucchini.  I think it turned out great.  IMG_9065 The kids showed up.  The heat showed up.   We played some games.  The kids were exhausted but I think they had fun.  IMG_9087We ended the games with a pinata.  The kids are getting way too big so we started blind-folding them so they could all have a turn trying to bat.
IMG_9092We ended with some food and cake.  IMG_9112Afterwards I asked Luke a few questions.  I was hoping to ask him the same questions each year to see how he changes.
