a birthday.

So my little guy turned 7 the other day. I hung tanks , airplanes and army men from the ceiling. He is really into GI Joe and the military things right now. But still loves to get the whole Indiana Jones gear on and play in the woods looking for fossils.

He got lots of military toys for his birthday. This is one of his favorites... a helicopter he can fly by remote.
Blowing out the candles....

We drove up to Ikea and got the birthday boy a new bed, too. My first and last time at Ikea. It was so crowded , my husband and I both do not do crowds. It was like a Wal-mart on crack. And my friends know I don't go to Wal-mart because of ALL the people. We managed to get the bed and I a migraine ( really).
Here is my sweet boy after a wonderful birthday, sleeping in his new bed. He loves it and that is all the matters.

Happy Birthday baby!!!!

You have to pick the right time to go to IKEA. NOT on a Saturday or time everyone is free. We live quite near an IKEA and usually in the morning it is quiet and somewhere around dinner time (every one sits in the restaurant).
Congratulations on your BIG boy, at least the bed sleeps sound by the look of the picture ;-)
