This boy was super excited to have a birthday with his cousins. It’s a first for him.
He dove into his bulk thrift store Legos—woo hoo! Good find!
Awesome! A magnifying glass!
Time to take pictures of me and…
my very redundant photo bomber.
Giant bunny ears! Is that better?
Ninjago fun from and with the cousins!
Elijah is in eight-year-old boy heaven.
We heard there was pie. Can we come back in?
Caramel apple pie made by Marissa and Emily. Ohhhhhh yum!
That deserves another peek.
Enough pictures! Let’s eat!
Let’s take another look at that pie the birthday boy.
Marissa whipped out this charcoal drawing of her little cousin, Samantha.
And then the guests had to split, and the party moved across the field to Great Grandpa and Grandma’s farm. Recognize the décor?
Anything for little ol’ me in there?
Oooo, a new harmonica and a how-to book. Hopefully the next gift is a decibel measuring device.
Some harmonica tunes.
Some wish-making and candle-blowing-outing.
Wishing is serious business.
Check it out, Grandpa.
And then back to the other farmhouse for some presents from Grandma Paula.
A leather double holster from Grandma. Awesomeness.
There’s our cowboy.
All he needs is a hat.
Maybe next year.
Happy birthday, Cowboy Ninja Boy!
