A Fun-Filled and Fabulous Friday!!!

Our sweet Corban turns eight on Sunday! 

 Yes, EIGHT!!!
 Honestly, Shane and I both are trying to wrap our minds around that number...EIGHT!!! 

 Wow! It seems like just yesterday we were walking him into Kindergarten, and now he is turning EIGHT AND just one summer away from entering the THIRD grade. 

My oh my how time flies!!

We painted the rock at Corban's school as a fun way to celebrate his upcoming birthday! We didn't let him see it until we were finished! Then we took him up to the school and surprised him! 

 Friday afternoon, the little ones and I went and picked up Krispy Kreme doughnuts and then headed over to Corbans school to celebrate his birthday with his class. 

It's always such a fun treat to eat lunch with this sweet guy!

Corban was super excited to pass out his doughnuts to his classmates!

And, yes... everyone enjoyed the yummy treat!

After doughnuts, we headed back to Corbans classroom. 

Mr. B., who is Corbans AWESOME teacher this year, celebrates each birthday child by making them a special balloon creation of their choice. 

 Actually, Mr. B made all four of my kids a special creation. 

Hudson showing off his "baseball cap" for Cor's class!

Riley and his swords. 

Mr. B had something really BIG in mind for our birthday boy!

It took quite a few balloons to create this great balloon concoction.

And the finished product...
Meet my sweet "knight in shining armor"!
Check out that helmet, shield, sword, and holster.
Thanks to Mr. B for making Cor's special day at school a memorable one!
We LOVE us some Mr. B!!!!

And the fun didn't stop sirree!

 Later that afternoon, our friends, the Jimenez family met us up at our neighborhood pool for swimming and a picnic dinner!

The kids had a BLAST swimming with their friends and hanging out at the pool!

And check out these two little stud muffins!!!! 
Just as cute as cute can be--I must say!!!!

What a fun-filled and FABULOUS way to close out our week!

Happy Birthday Corban! Love that you guys painted the rock. We had a rock that we painted in college and we always said it was probably just a pebble but it with all the layers of paint, it was a giant rock.Ha Ha! What an amazing teacher, I need to brush up on my balloon shapes this summer.

What kind of paint did you use to paint the rock silver?! And his school didn't mind? That's such a sweet idea!
