|He did like his big pirate puzzle and a new Cubbies hat. (Of course, we found his old one that same week. He didn't know it was lost in the first place, so this gift was also slightly confusing.)|
|I think we managed to redeem the birthday with a new bike. And a trip to the pool that night.|
|Leslie had a fun first season of volleyball playing with other 5th-6th grade girls. Brooke got to attend her last game and gifted her a volleyball of her own to practice with.|
|We took a break from unpacking on Coop's birthday to visit Cabela's with Brooke and Brig.|
|The kids always like the shooting range, but it's better with Grandpa.|
|I know, candles in a crock pot is kind of weird, but this is the second year he wanted this and I am definitely not arguing. (I think I pretty much polished off the leftovers single-handedly.)|
|He got loaded up with accolades. He really did learn quite a bit at preschool and I'm glad we did it. He also had fun being in a class of all boys his own age.|
