turning eight years old, kj style…

eight years ago, this little man came into our life.

and on wednesday of this week, we celebrated our gator, in true-kj-fashion with all of his favorite things…

blue + turquoise + stripey things everywhere + donuts + texas cake + ice cream dots + cream soda + hawaiian punch + lots of boy-inspired gifts such as lego’s/rockets/nerf guns/and balloons stuffed with money! + all the people he loves + video games.

the day was beautiful. weather around here is sketchy in springtime. rain or snow one day & sunshine the next. and, we’ve had lots of the rain & snow lately.

but, wednesday?

the clouds flew away and the sun was bright. just like our little mans smile.

i loved that kj had a sis on each side of him, he will be well-cared for his entire life…

every party needs a couple of princesses!

mmm mmm mmmmm, check out sela’s donut & livi’s pizza!

our entertainment arrived at 5pm & the kids were able to play video games for 2 hours! the utah party truck comes to you, it’s totally rad!

inside the gaming truck— there are 4 plasma tv’s, and 16 people can be playing at once. 4 per tv. we had one set-up with a wii, and 3 on xbox 360. each had different games going on & the kids loved it! gamer heaven.

funny thing about this picture below… until i saw it, i didn’t know that kj made this little mouth-gesture when he games. his big papi does the exact same thing! life father, like son. they suck-in their cheeks and kinda chew on them or something, but what does it mean? they are serious about what’s going on & concentrating!

thank you to everyone who celebrated with us. i know a weekday in april is busy for everyone! soccer games/baseball games/school…you all made kj’s day so special. he said, and i quote, “this is the best birthday ever!”

we love you all.

  4. The decorations look amazing! I love the blue theme and I can imagine how excited the gamers were to see what was inside that trailer!

    Can I just say how jealous I am that you have those incredible Utah mountains "in your backyard"?! So beautiful.

  5. best thing about that truck was that it came with free babysitting! 🙂 great pics baby! I agree with Natasha… we are going to miss those mountains in a few months.

  7. What a great gaming truck – I am going to book it for Carson's Birthday in September (thanks for the idea)! The party looked like it was a great time.

    love all the pictures, it was actually a very low key party. not the usual craziness that comes with a boy's birthday party!

    perfect for KJ… finally a gaming party! 😉
