This is the first year in 3 years we have not been at God's Mountain over Jaxon's birthday. It was a quieter day around here celebrating our 8 year old! We surprised him with a little rec 3 on 3 basketball tourney for his big day. He played with a few of his friends, got some new BB shoes from his Papa, and was ready for some games. I think he had fun, even though his team was the only 2nd graders and they got bumped up to 3rd & 4th grade bracket. I could see my little competitor take it all in and I will be honest... it was hard to watch my birthday boy get a little lost in the bigger kids and losing bracket. It was a good learning experience for all of us though and he still said at the end of the day it was his favorite part of his birthday. We did his requested breakfast, opened gifts, went to his tourney, got pizza for lunch, relaxed in afternoon (his request again!), played some backyard ball, and went out to eat...he choose Carlos, yum! Our 8 year old had a good day here at home, but did ask if we could go to the mountain next year about 3 times :) Oooh, how I love this 8 year old of mine. He's growing into such a good young boy. Happy, happy birthday sweet baby boy! (I can still call you that, right?)
Birthday breakfast...this year he chose birds nest :)
He is #21 white jersey...and doesn't he look so short next to the boy in black!?!? Jax is the tallest boy on their team!
