|A surprising spring cold front blew in on Connor's birthday. It was freezing!! As I took this picture on our backyard deck, Connor exclaimed, "I feel like I'm in Anarctica!" Ha!|
Poor Connor, we've had such a busy spring that his birthday was almost altogether overlooked. Not to mention the fact that he came down with a terrible stomach bug the night before his big day. (Boo!) But as it turned out, he had a relaxing day (once he recovered) with Mom and enjoyed some down time without having the long commute to Katy for school. We dropped Kaitlynn off at preschool and went to Target to pick out a special birthday gift: Super Mario Brothers for his Wii U. And then we spent many hours that weekend playing the new game. Man, did that take me back to my high school days. I used to LOVE that game on the old Nintendo console!

Since Jeff was out of town for Kevin's water polo tournament, he left Connor a special birthday message. They love to write coded messages back and forth using symbols.

After Connor recovered from the stomach bug, he returned to school with some special Texans cookies to celebrate with his classmates.

|It was a heavy load!|
And even though we didn't have a party or a family celebration for Connor's big day, we managed to squeeze in a little WAC-ky fun with Connor's best friends. They played, swam, and enjoyed some birthday cookie cake together since their birthdays are all a few weeks apart. I think that made up for our lack of celebrations!
|Look at those excited faces!|
|This blog probably has hundreds of these jump shots -- can't get enough of them! :-)|
