Celebrating Nic's Birthday

Yesterday, was our garage sale!  It was also Nic's 7th birthday! 

Last week, several times he was asking why we were having our garage sale on his birthday? 

It seemed that was his mum's day off was the answer.

We had a fair bit of traffic considering it was only Friday, but it was mostly senior citizens and we had mostly kid stuff!!!  But we did sell and got rid of some.

And it was hot!  Well into the 90's.  We have trees that pretty much shade our driveway, thank goodness.

And thanks, to Curtis, who kept the kids in tow.  They showed up at 7:45 and didn't leave until after dinner.

We got him a cake with red and blue, because he will tell you his birthday is July the 4th!!!  And they are his favorite colours.  We ordered pizza to make an easy meal for all of us!

The birthday boy and his brother.

His new bike from nana and papa. 

I think he has finally managed to ride without training wheels. 

And a layout of the brother standing on his mum!!!

And I am frustrated with the Montana State Fair people. 

Who ever is running the Creative Arts division only wants two page layouts.  I am sorry, but one page can cover as much with more than one photo and journaling.  Sure, lots of times mine only have one photo, but many times they have more.  They are back in the dark ages.  I won  a lot last year and I think some people were upset!  So, they won't have my competition this year.

He looks like the cake was a big hit, and the bike too. Our county fair is next week, and I never think to look into entering the adult scrapbooking competition. Maybe I should add that to my calendar for next year.

Happy Birthday Nic !!!
He is such a cutie.
Your layout is pure perfection as they always are.
Sorry they changed the rules and you can't submit your layouts….too bad, as they are missing out on some great talent
