Solomon turned 11 at the end of September. I just realized I never had a chance to upload pictures from his big day.
I had closed the boys' bedroom door, taped over it from the outside, and filled the space in between with about 5 dozen balloons that came cascading into the bedroom when they opened the door. The boys all loved it. I was slightly bleary-eyed from having to get up at 4 am to pull this one off in time.
Solomon had seen this picture frame at the Capitol Museum on a field trip. I talked him out of buying it, just so I could get it for him as a gift, complete with a photo of us all.
Can you tell how dark it is in all these pictures? The kids seriously get up at about 5 am whenever one of them has a birthday.
The requested birthday breakfast consisted of bacon, pancakes, eggs, bacon, toast, smoothies, and of course, bacon. I don't remember what we had for his special dinner, but it probably involved bacon. :)
Our main gift was an r/c helicopter. After a few crashes, Solomon has become an expert pilot. Except when he gets it stuck up high in a tree at the park...
For the special outing, my husband took the three boys to a local roller-coaster park. They had so much fun they forgot to take any pictures!!! Which practically means it never even happened at all.
Solomon is such a special blessing, and a wonderful first child to have. He is a great helper to me, and a good older brother to his siblings.
Happy Birthday, Big Boy! We love you!!!
