Successfully Spoiled Six-year-old!

A belated shout out to Nolan! He turned the big SIX on June, 4. We had a park birthday party planned but got rained out so the party was at our house...worked fine aside from the fact that pictures do NOT turn out at ALL in our living room. Horrid lighting. So, this photo is an accurate description of Nolan and how happy he is at SIX! I can't believe it. He got so many awesome presents:

  • Metal detector! A child sized version. He's wanted one for two years.
  • Remote control ATV. He's also wanted this for ages.
  • Nerf gun with laser sight. He LOVES this. As does Cole. Many Nerf fights have gone down.
  • Books.
  • National Geographic Kids subscription.
  • Your Big Backyard subscription.
  • Solar system and constellations model.
  • Cool shirts and shorts.
  • Crayons and markers. Can never have too many of those.
  • Juggling balls and instructional DVD.
  • Scooter.
  • Bike horn.
  • Electric pencil sharpener. He's wanted this for a long time. Our pencils have never been sharper.

We got Elliot a metal detector for his birthday as well...it's a cheapo one for now, but if he really gets into it i'm sure we'll need to replace it with something more durable. He did get awesome presents...:)

Sounds perfect. Happy Birthday, Nolan! I have a little boy that would probably get a big kick out of hanging out with you. I just am a tiny bit scare of the ideas you would hatch up together.
