Clark's Birthday....Double Digits!

Clark had his 10th birthday the end of July.  Wow, we have a child that is double digits!  Clark was introduced to a game that his cousins play where you create your own creature and watch it grow and evolve.  It's called Spore.  He wanted the Spore logo on his cake and if you might have guessed, asked for the game for his birthday.

I printed off the logo, cut out the letters and used them as my template.  It worked out pretty well.  I am still working on getting down the whole smooth-cake thing, but my kids don't seem to notice the imperfections like I do.

We did get Clark the game Spore for his birthday.  We didn't want Clark to know what it was so Lee put random legos in a empty cereal box along with the game. When Clark woke up at 5:30am on his birthday he definitely thought he didn't get the game.

During the afternoon of Clark's birthday Shanna and I went to a babyshower for my friend Chandra. She recently gave birth to her fourth baby!  We had a great time.  Shanna didn't seem so excited while we were there, but when we arrived home and were talking about it she said she had a great time.

Later that night we drove out and saw the fireworks at the McGaheysville Fire Department.  They did a big fundraiser that weekend.  The firework show happened to fall on Clark's birthday.

We pulled over on the side of the road and watched them.  It made for an easy exit as the highway was right there!

Happy Birthday Clark!  It's sure great having you in our family.  He loves jumping on the trampoline, playing games--computer and board games, visiting family, and is a good worker.  I am so excited because next year he is going to be the resident babysitter! I've been talking to him about it for quite awhile now, and it's only a year!

You look way too young to have a 10 year old!
