Cole turned the great age of 8 on June 25th. The weeks before his birthday, we kept asking him what he wanted and what he wanted to DO for his birthday. His plan changed daily, as well as what he wanted. So our last minute birthday plans involved picking up his two cousins George and Addison and heading to the pool. It was only about 68 degrees outside, but that didn't stop the kids from wanting to swim. After swimming we went to chuck-e-cheese, where a kid can be a kid, for some games and pizza. We then headed to his cousins house for cake, ice cream and opening presents. Cole was in heaven, he received legos, a pogo stick, a bubble blower, and other fun stuff. He is looking forward to his baptism, which will happen in September due to vacations and babies being born. We love this kid! I would describe Cole as quiet and mischeivous. Most of the time I am not sure what he is thinking. For example, a few months ago I caught him taking a chisel to the driveway. He was looking for diamonds in the rock. We now have lots of divets in our driveway as a reminder of his curious mind. He is such a loving boy and is our only child who will not go to bed without a hug and a kiss from both Brent and I. We love him!
