Peter And His 8th Birthday Today!

He had to wake up and put on his shirt with an eight on it!  His favorite number and NOW HIS AGE!

The club had “camping” on the golf course last night.  It was 55 degrees and perfect for sleeping.  Did not bring the air-mattresses since it was only for one night…big mistake!  I never have back pain and I keep having spasms.  Am I getting OLD?  I wish we camped like this when we were kids, with all of our friends.  Peter rescued a girls shoe from the pond which meant going in.  Why do parents look at the parent  of the child that is doing something wacky?  I yelled at the moms and dads that when he gets the flesh eating bacteria I would be calling all of them for skin grafts.  I bought him a net for the ponds with a very, very long handle.

Here he is waking up at campout in tent.

Morning on the golf course.

Probably not as excited as he would have been had he’d gotten the veiled chameleon or Jesus Christ lizard he asked for.  I would be in charge of buying crickets and we would have to listen to them prior to being eaten and I just decided I might go mad feeling like I was in a Poe novel.  He is in his bathing suit, buster brown shoes and a baseball helmet on his new bike.  Did you expect anything different form this kid?

What he is most excited for is the nature blog I am going to help him with.  We are going to try and do a post a week all summer.  That is his gift from mom. 🙂

Happy Sunday and see you tomorrow with a story.

Abbie,  All that makes you smile, laugh, think, love, cry or cry laughing.

  1. If Peter’s stretching out his birthday, that means I’m not to late to say, “Happy Birthday, Peter!” 🙂

    Love the idea of his starting a nature blog for the summer, and I can’t wait to read it! 🙂

  2. Pingback: It’s a Cage, OMWord, I Just Assembled a Cage For My Child | All that makes you…

  3. Looks like it was a great day. About that front porch behind his bicycling self – it’s yours, right? To me it’s the very picture of a North Carolina front porch. Perfect.

    • Ohhhhh….our realtor took us to the house across the street and I saw the porch and fell in love with this one. The realtor thought we were too young to want such a traditional home. I reminded him I was from Michigan and I wanted a “Southern Living” Carolina coastal Caribbean style house. We love it. Thanks. 🙂
