Micah's 7th!

Wow, I have really gotten in a non posting slump!  I think I've just gotten so far behind that it's hard to get started, but here goes!

So, these are just a few of the pictures from Micah's birthday and some of these are a week after his birthday.  I have more on my phone, but will add those later when I can figure it out! 

Micah's birthday started out to be hard day for him.  We took him to this place called the monkey house which has multiple inflatable bounce around kind of things.  He started out well, then something upset him and he never recovered.  Wayne had to take him to the car and I stayed in with Gabriel so he could enjoy it, then we switched duties and stayed for just a little while longer.  He had woken up really early, about 3 am and had not gone back to sleep.  This has been something we have been dealing with quite a bit for the last 2 months.  Anyway, when we got home he slept for about 3 hours and was in a much better mood later.  We had the giant cookie and gave him gifts.  One of the things we gave him was a big bubble machine, which is what Gabriel is enjoying.  Micah went through this phase of not wanting to be outside (which thankfully has passed now), so Gabriel had fun with the bubbles. 

The thing he enjoyed most was the silly string.  In the picture with his big smile I had just sprayed him and he thought it was the funniest thing.  He laughed so hard for as long as the stuff lasted.  As you can see, it's all over the floor.  I did not think about how much of a mess it would be.  I decided next time that we should do it outside, but the clean up was worth five minutes of belly laughter from Micah!

Wayne's family came a few days after his birthday and we celebrated at Chuck E. Cheese's because that has been a favorite of Micah's in the last few years.  He didn't seem as enamored by it this time, but he really wanted to be a part of the band.  He kept going up to the stage, walking around and chuckling.

The last pictures are of Gabriel's "car garden" that he made with Aunt Paula.  If ever a boy loved to play with cars and dirt, it's Gabriel!
