As usual Jackson’s birthday always leaves me speechless.  How can he be 7?  Maybe 4, but surely he cannot be 7?!?  But yes on Saturday he turned 7, and what a birthday it was!  Look how grown up he is!


He wanted something yummy for breakfast, so he feasted on chocolate croissants! That boy loves some sweets.  Any kind of carbs really!


He opened a few small presents.  He was thrilled with his wallet and new sneakers!  He has been asking for green Vans all summer.


Afterwards he took a paddle on his big present.  A paddleboard of his very own.  Look how awesome he is doing.


After lunch, we went out on the boat with some friends and they boys had a total blast.  He loves being with his friends.  He’s also really into anything to do with extreme sports.


Jackson learned to ski on a stand up paddleboard.  It was awesome.  Here is a video.

We also had a new tube for the boys.  Miller wasn’t quite up for it, but Jackson and his friends were in love with it!  See above about extreme sports!



We came home had a quick dinner before his cake. {more carbs!}


The highlight of his birthday must have been his first real sleepover!NIK_3539

Needless to say we were all exhausted the next day.

At 7 years old Jackson is all boy.  He loves bike riding, skate boarding, scootering and most anything with wheels on it.  His dad is still his hero and thinks he can do anything!  He is much braver than I have ever been!  Although it makes for some hard to breathe moments for me, I am so proud of him!
