Let the celebration begin...

My sweet Corban will turn 7 on Saturday. SEVEN!!!!!! I seriously cannot believe it. He is changing from a little boy into a precious young man right before my very eyes! To celebrate his birthday, we let Corban pick between having a big party with friends, or spending the day at C@rowinds and inviting just one friend to come along too.
He thought about it for a while, and then picked a day at C@rowinds.
We called and invited his good buddy, Jack, to come along for the day.
So Thursday, we let Corban skip school, Shane took the day off of work, and we headed out to C@rowinds for a fun-filled day!

and Charlie Brown.

The weather man was predicting mid-day thunderstorms, BUT (what a blessing) it turned out to be beautiful. It wasn't blistering hot either, which was a nice treat too!!
A perfect day to spend outside!!

These two brave little boys talked me into riding the Southern Star with them.
It's a giant Viking ship that swings back and forth, then turns around two times, suspending you upside down!

Getting ready for some 3-D action!

Hanging out on the swings!

Our trip wasn't complete with out a HUGE candy apple and a nice cold slushy!

Of course the birthday fun doesn't end there...

Friday, we celebrated Cor's birthday at school with all his friends. We stopped by Krispy Kreme and picked up two dozen doughnuts (Cor's request), and then headed over to the school to join him for lunch!

My sweet birthday boy!

A big Happy Birthday to Corban! I can't believe he's 7! Where is the time going? Looks like you had a wonderful time at Carowinds. I hope to take the girls this summer.

What GREAT pictures, Jenny! Jack had SO much fun with you guys on Thursday! He keeps talking about the Southern Star ride! Thanks again!
Looks like a fun celebration in Cor's class, too. We did donuts when Jack turned 8 this year & they were a big hit, you can't beat a Krispy Kreme!
Happy Birthday Corban!

Happy Birthday, Corban! Judging by those pictures, I'm guessing he had a blast!
