This past weekend was Tristan’s birthday! He is EIGHT years old. I know I say this every year, but I cannot believe I have an eight year old child. Time goes so fast!
His birthday was on Friday. My dad came to town (he always makes a point to be here on Tristan & Kate’s birthdays) and we celebrated as a family on Friday evening. Tristan LOVES the Japanese Steakhouse in town, so that’s where we went. They ended up putting us in the party room in the back all by ourselves. I didn’t tell anyone it was his birthday, but when they said “we are going to put you in the party room”, Tristan said “How did they know it was my birthday!”..haha. He was pretty excited!
Saturday was his birthday party. Last year he didn’t get a party, and we felt so sad about that. This year we made sure he got one! Usually he goes for Star Wars as a party theme, but this year he mixed things up and asked for a Minecraft birthday party. (PS: I don’t know anything about Minecraft) All he wanted to do was play with his friends, so that’s all they did. He had the best day, and he received the best gifts. He LOVES Lego’s, and we don’t let him get Lego sets that often because he has so many and we are running out of room..haha. He’s begged us for Minecraft Lego sets for probably 6 months. Well, you’ll never guess what he got at his party! Three minecraft Lego sets, and 2 other Lego sets. He spent most of his afternoon yesterday building his sets. He got some AWESOME Star Wars things on Friday, and a skateboard. He’s been playing with those things non-stop. Little boy in HEAVEN.
We are so thankful for his friends, and my Momma friends who came to hang out with me during the party! He had the best weekend, and that makes my heart and Shelby’s heart happy.
