June 5, 2007 Charlie and I welcomed a handsome, 8lb 12oz, 22 inch baby boy into the world and into our lives. Today we celebrate his 6th birthday. (He asked for cupcakes rather than a cake).
John asked to have 2 of his friends come over to join us at Chuck-E-Cheese and spend the night. It was a great time! We spent about 3 hours at Chuck-E-Cheese's playing all the games, winning tickets and eating pizza. When we were done there we headed over to the firehouse Charlie volunteers at and all the kids got a ride through town in one of the fire trucks. They were laughing and smiling the whole time. It was getting late by the time we got home, but, they were all still full of energy and played for another hour before I got everyone settled down and ready for bed.
When John and his friends woke up Saturday morning they had breakfast and went straight back to playing where they left off the night before. It was really nice having John's friends here to celebrate with him.
