Approval for ice cream! He was almost non-plussed that the ice cream was vanilla until Daddy told him ice cream should be vanilla to permit cake to be chocolate, July 31, 2014, 6:43 p.m.
From Daddy: Today was his sixth birthday! Yay!
Early this morning, he marched into our bedroom and declared, “I’m six!”
We was surprised by birthday balloons this morning from Grandma, July 31, 2014, 6:52 a.m.
He asked me to get breakfast for him. In the dining room, he saw balloons from Grandma and said, “That surprised me.”
Later in the morning, he played golf with Mommy. They joined a husband and wife duo to form a nice foursome.
I returned home after work with a chocolate and red velvet bundlet from Nothing Bundt Cakes to be left at home…

Peeling stickers from his Turbo birthday card. Several weeks ago, while shopping at Walgreen’s with Daddy, he spotted this Turbo card and decided that he wanted this for his birthday. We bought it. He was delighted and surprised (though he shouldn’t have been) to have received it on his birthday!, July 31, 2014, 7:25 p.m.

Trying to get his stance right
A star in the making

By the way, the blue on his arm is from a marker
