Holden turns 9!!!!
It's hard to believe that 9 years ago Holden came into this world. It honestly seems like yesterday. This year was a bit different from years past in celebrating. We did a full week of celebrating with Holden's best friend Grant. We went to Kings Island, had a sleepover, went swimming, went to Laser Kraze, played basketball, and shared lots of ice cream together. I feel bad that we did not have a huge party with all of his friends but when I asked Holden what he wanted to do, this was his birthday plan before we left Ohio.
Yesterday, we let Holden decide what he wanted to do all day. It mostly involved food. He wanted donuts for breakfast, and instead of a cake, he wanted cookies and cream ice cream as his celebration dessert.
Part of Holden's plan for his day was to go to the Athletic club swimming but as luck would have it, it rained. Instead we went anklet him pick out his big birthday gift…a geared bike.
Since the weather was still yucky, Kevin took the older two to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Our ninjas gave the movie two thumbs up!
To end the night, we watched the LSU-Wisconsin game and celebrated with our birthday boy!
Happy Birthday Holden!
Don't worry, today we filled his birthday request of going swimming at the Athletic Club.
As you can see, we all had a blast on our last day of summer hurrah.
