This year, Travis asked for a different kind of birthday party. He asked for a small gathering at Mama's house (Pauline), to play in the water (she lives on the Intracoastal waterway). So we got there early, loaded up the boat with our family, minus Riley, Sandra, Gary and the Pope family, minus Madelyn. Riley and Madelyn stayed behind at Pauline's house where she and my mom and Debbie happily tended to babies for a few hours. The rest of us were off to Masonboro Island for a while. It's basically like being at a private beach, and it's miles and miles of white sand. We played in the water and Sandra and the kids built a sand sea turtle.
After playing over there for a while, we went back to the house and swam and ate and opened gifts and played in the water some more. By the end of the day, we were all exhausted and sun burned, but we had a great day!
The birthday boy!
The basketball to go with his new big boy basketball goal!
No pictures of blowing out the candles because as you'll see...the wind wasn't cooperating.
I can't believe he's 7!!!
