Last week a special friend of the Bolling family turned 9, Gabe Shaffer.
We were invited to party-harty with him and his family and a few of his buddies from the football team.
What boy doesn't like football?
With their older brothers and their daddies?
There was a cold chill, in the air, so Sam and Jake got a fire going for the mommies &
And… so it goes…
Where there are boys, there is also blood. Poor Elijah got a bloody nose.
We were taking bets about who was having more fun, the daddies or the boys.
Ranger exclaims, "Come on, you should've had that!"
I loved how Jax, even being the youngest, was right in on the fun and tackles.
So sweet! See the ball in the sky? He's such a special kid.
Rough and Tough
I think Elijah's face is hilarious in the below photo!
Jax stopped at nothing to stop a play!
There's the birthday boy having the time of his life!
After football, he opened gifts. We bought Gabe a personalized puzzle of himself, in his football jersey, a "stow and go", and two pairs of elite socks. You can tell by his reaction, tongue out, that he loved the gift :) Yes, even over socks. It's the hot item for 9 year olds.
Time for cake and ice cream!
"Happy Birthday to you…
Happy Birthday to you…
Happy Birthday to Gabe…
Happy Birthday toYOU!"
The boys after sugar.
