Can you tell where Brennan chose to have his 11th birthday party this year?
It's always fun having a Friday birthday - you get to celebrate at school (with cookies for your classmates), but it's also a weekend, so you can have your party ON your birthday!
Brennan says Friday birthdays are really the best birthdays.
It's also a "silver birthday" as a Scottish friend let me know - he was also born on a Friday (and don't I remember it well. He was scheduled for a Monday morning c-section, so I had hair and nails appointment that Friday, along with lots of family members coming in over the weekend. But, SURPRISE!)
After a super fun birthday at school (lots of birthday singing and celebrating apparently)
We made a quick trip in to Target for some birthday party necessities and a Starbucks run.
"It tastes like Paris!", Brennan says.
We all went out to eat, then we headed to Skateland to party, party, party!

Dad and Thomas
(Dad in no shoes, Thomas in skates, but still, that boy is getting too tall!)

They had to leave the party early to go to church for a Junior High Lock-In and 4:30 a.m. IHOP visit - they had a ball, and Thomas still made it to tennis by 12:00 the next day!

Instead of gifts Brennan asked for canned goods for our local food bank.
But everyone brought cool cards - this one is from the girls in his class - he apparently sings a ton at school to drive them all crazy (sounds like our afternoon errands time), and they love it.
Brennan loves skating!

Singing Happy Birthday
I love this boy!!!
Happy 11th Birthday, Brennan!
