Eight on this Date

Evan turned eight! Time flies when you're having fun.
He celebrated by having a friend sleep over the night before. The three boys, Evan, Hans, and Andrew "slept" in the tent. I was pretty sure they were asleep by 11pm but woke to them laughing at 2am and made them come sleep in the living room.

On his birthday we headed to to 1,000 Island Nature Preserve for an eagle hike and some outdoor exploring. We followed it up with lunch at McDonald's and some more outdoor time at a park in Neenah. When Nathan got home from work we enjoyed supper of Evan's choice-shrimp pasta. Evan's cake wasn't actually a cake this year but a butterscotch mousse dessert. When it came to gift time he was thrilled to receive his own two person raft and get to give it a try that evening. He's eager to get it in the water again and perfect his paddling.
Happy Birthday Boy
My own!
Trying oars which are much harder than paddles.
Happiest of birthdays to you Evan. You are a outgoing, creative, inquisitive boy who we love so very much.
