Conner's 7th birthday

Conner picked out his own lacrosse stick for his birthday. Dad also picked out his shirt from Bass Pro and the hat. According to Conner, Justin and him are the only ones that are survival people in the family. 

His big gift was a cot to sleep on his room. Justin has one and he loves it. So this is what he sleeps on every night in his room. They have bunk beds but occasionally Taylor will sleep on them. He was so excited and loves it. 

We went up to Mt. Diablo for his birthday to hike for the morning. We hiked around rock city and ate lunch together. 

Conner is a scrappy little climber and gets around almost better than his brothers. 

We hiked to the top of this mountain. Cooper is always a little scary. He wants you to carry him on the safe parts and walk by himself on the scary parts.

We made dirt cake for his birthday. It was so good and the kids loved it. We had the Holmes over to celebrate because Conner remembered that last year Dad worked late and he no one came over. So we made sure it was a party this year with us and the Holmes. 

A couple things about Conner. He has come along way with his reading in school. He really tries hard and is always good to come home and do his homework. He writes fun letters and great stories. He likes things to be perfect. He is a good little drawer. He is quite the runner. He ran two laps around the track in a race and got 4th place. He is really good at weaving around people. I love to watch him run. He loves playing baseball with his brothers. He loves making crafts. He loves to smile and loves to take care of Cooper. We love you Conner.
