Beckham turns 8!

Sept. 22, 2012

2:00 pm

Beckham decided to have his friend party at a trampoline park in Kaysville called Get Air. This place rocks!

 There are trampolines everywhere surrounded by foam pads and have HUGE foam pits for you to jump into. The kids love it. Beckham, scene here with some kind of gansta' move,

 asked Kevin to be the parent in charge. So I only have second hand information to share :) Kev said the kids loved it, but there were some minor injuries. Nothing serious and with 8 kids who were either 7, 8, or 9 I think we will call that a success!

 This cute girl is Megan. Before the party I took Beckham to take some pictures. Do you want to know how we got him to smile? Just mentioning Megan's name. They really are just friends. He confessed his TRUE crush to me later, but it was still funny. At one point he begged me to stopped, while smiling, and said, "Mom, you are crushing my soul!" HA!

Hallie, Megan, Brady, Austin, Bradly Matt, Beckham, and Josh in front.

 The next morning, today, Sept. 23, 2012 was THE day. Beckham turned 8!

 I didn't get a picture but we made him a special breakfast of pancakes with chocolate chips in them topped with cool whip. Yum!

Funny back story: When I asked Beckham what he wanted for his special breakfast he said, "So, you are remembering our tradition of a special breakfast." I think I may be disowned if ever I should forget!

 He's been reading Percy Jackson. Zeus is one of his favorite characters in the book so he asked for Zeus's lighting bolt in the sky for his cake.

 We had cake and ice cream at our house. The girls did this while they waited for the party to start.

 The boys?


Even Sanders. Who tackled his almost 14 year old cousin to the ground. For reals.

 Party goers. Are kids are seriously loved. Thank you for coming!!!

All the cousins there. We were missing the Davis', who are on vacation, and the Lawsons who choose not to live in the same state ;)

Notice how Sanders is copying Austin. He just loves him.

Beckham is a super lucky little boy. He loved all the generous gift people brought.

The Francoms gave him a baptism towel. I can't believe his baptism is in three weeks!

 I always seem to forget to take a picture with me and my kids. But not today my friends!

Notice Karaia photo bombing this one. Little stink.

And one to show just what kind of influences my step brother is for my kids. Awesome. :)

Tonight I read to Beckham from my journal about the day he was born. When he hugged me goodnight he started crying. He couldn't tell me why, but I had been prompted all day to read that entry to him. I'm sure deep down he knows why. I'm just grateful I listened! He is a great kid!!!!

I love you Beckham!
