On the Friday before his birthday, we picked up some donuts for Connor's classmates to enjoy during snack time at school. Connor is a HUGE donut fan and an even bigger Shipley's fan. We made a morning stop at Shipley's and he tried out a new donut, the bear claw. Now that's his new favorite! On that same day, it was Field Day at school. So he had a pretty great start to his birthday weekend.

We decided to let Connor invite a few of his school friends over for a birthday sleepover. We ordered a cookie cake and some pizza, and they all had a great time swimming, playing football, and playing video games. I tell ya, a house full of boys that age is interesting! I'm exhausted all over again just thinking about it!

|Always a favorite, yummy!|

On Connor's actual birthday, he was excited to open a few gifts. The most important thing on his list was a new Houston Texans baseball cap that has the Houston skyline on the inside of the bill. You would've thought this kid won the lottery from his excitement about that hat! Not sure if he's taken it off since!

Later on his birthday, Connor had one of his very best school friends over to play. They've been best buddies for a couple years but this was the first time we managed to have him over for a visit. Those were 2 excited kids! They played and went to CiCi's Pizza for lunch, still on the top of Connor's favorite spots to eat.
Happy 9th birthday, buddy!!!
