Nixon's big day fell on a Tuesday. He started off the day with a few presents before school. As far back as I can remember, Nixon has been really into dogs. The truth is...I'm just not a dog person. But years ago, I told him when he turned seven we could get a dog. I said that thinking, "surely he'll be over dogs by then". And in some ways he has because now he's into sports, but deep down his love for dogs remains. So-I'm panicked because he just turned six! haha!
Ebby Lee and Bowen each chose him a toy for his birthday.
I brought him a special birthday lunch. :)
That night the real party started. He asked for a couple friends to go bowling and eat dinner at the bowling alley. Nixon is always my easiest kid for gift giving and birthdays.
We swung by and picked up three of his good friends and headed to Splitsville for some bowling fun.
M came to join the fun as well!
Bowen was pumped about getting to hang with the big boys. :)
These boys were so fun! They were all crazy pumped about bowling. They were pros at watching to see whose turn it was next AND they might now think the ball retriever can suck kids up inside if they get too close. #allegedly #idontknowwhotoldthemthat #tab #butitworked
We had pizza, nachos, and french fries with the most delicious french onion dipping sauce for dinner. Seriously, I might ask to go back for the fries and sauce on my birthday.
We followed it up with baseball cupcakes for dessert.
Birthday boy was too cool for a picture. He was trying to hide and that little brother is trouble. :)
I sent this picture to all the mamas at the end of the night and let Meagan know I was signing Fount up for a bowling league.
How we ended the night!!
Nixon had the best time celebrating his big day with friends!
