My baby is seven years old today. I can't believe my baby boy is seven.

We celebrated a little already on Saturday. We went to a Japanese steakhouse, bowling, and then to Cold Stone. (All of which Riley chose himself.)

We also bought part of his birthday present. Ever since the demise of Nemo Michael and I have been talking about getting Riley another fish. We let Riley pick out what he wanted this time. He chose Glo-fish.

These particular fish need an aquarium so we had to buy one of those and set it up and let it run a couple of days. Today we will go get the fish. Riley is so excited he can't stand it.

Then, it's off to my mom's for a birthday supper of spaghetti (Riley's choice again). I'm also taking cupcakes out to school this afternoon for his class.

Happy birthday, little man. I love you with all of my heart and am so glad God picked me to be your mom.

What?! SEVEN?!! I thought he was, like, five or something. How is he seven already. Dear Lordy, I'm getting old...

Happy Birthday, Riley!! And you too, Penny. :-)

Ha ha, Allison. You think it makes you feel old? My oldest is 18 now. I feel ancient.

Hibachi, bowling and ice cream. What else does one need. Great choice, Riley. Happy Birthday!
