Levi is an 11 year old!

Levi has officially joined the ranks of pre-teen and we enjoyed celebrating his birthday recently. For several months he told us that all he wanted (to do to celebrate his birthday . . . ) was to have 3 particular friends over for a sleepover. We were able to get everyone's schedules to cooperate and enjoyed a very relaxed "party" - he didn't even want a cake!

A highly unstructured event, it was filled with laser tag at the park, stomp rocket and trampoline fun in the backyard, a lively game of "Big Cookie" and a movie that Levi set up to project onto the living room wall during the sleepover. We also were thrilled to have "Auntie Penny" join us before she moved out of state.

Levi's actual birthday was about a week after our celebration and happened to fall on a Friday, so after assembling his "robot duck" (and enjoying some other gifts that he opened that morning) we were able to sneak away for a little bowling adventure too!
