Our "Birthday Day"

Yes, Caden and I have the same birthday! And yes, this post is going back about 2 weeks! Anyways! On our "birthday day" I woke Caden up extra early with a present. Then we went to a quick breakfast at the Huddle House.
Sweet boy is Seven!

After dropping him off at school, I had to make a quick trip to Wal Mart. I came out and one of my friends had these on my car IN THE PARKING LOT!

Today was also Homecoming at our town's high school. I took cupcakes to his class about 1:00, and then we had to check out for the pep rally!

We went to the pep rally and after that followed the Homecoming parade!
Friends watching the parade!

We ended our day by going out to dinner at Logan's Roadhouse with my Mom and family. We had a great day together and I still can't believe that my baby is seven years old!

Star Wars Exhibit

First and Foremost, I have been a terrible blogger! I have been so busy, and I am always thinking, "nobody really cares to read about whats going on with you!" I am going to try to back up and do a few posts to catch up!

About a month ago, a friend and I took Caden and her son to the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center for a Star Wars exhibit. I have never in my life had an interest in Star Wars and know NOTHING about it. However, my sweet Caden has fallen in love with it this year. So much that he wanted it to be the theme of his seventh birthday party. I usually try to stay away from the character themes, but I couldn't say no! I am hoping that it turns out as good as I've wanted. We haven't gone "all out" this year being that I am "JOBLESS"! As long as he has his friends and family he will have a blast! I will definately post about it after this weekend!

Back to the exhibit, Amy mentioned it to me at the beginning of school and I couldn't pass it up. I knew he would so excited! We did go on a weekday, but we had it excused from school as an "educational trip"! This exhibit had all of the props from the real Star Wars movies! Each prop had a speaker to tell you all about it, however, the boys were too excited and ran from one thing to the next! If you are my friend on FB then you might have already seen pictures from our big day. Here are a few of them...

He bought these there!

Worn Out!!

I figured that this trip would be a great gift to Caden because it is something he will always remember! I apologize for all of the glares, we couldnt use a flash in the exhibit!
