Sammy’s Birthday Fun

This year for Sammy’s birthday we didn’t have a big party.  But we did celebrate with some family throughout the weekend. 

We kicked off his birthday morning with opening a few presents at our house.  Sammy’s signature 7 year old pose:


Sammy’s good buddies were still traveling during his birthday but they ordered this wonderful book for his birthday and we have been enjoying it since then:


Next up it is was lunch at Sammy’s favorite Italian restaurant:

Sammy was really into his birthday cards this year.  He loved reading them aloud to everyone:

I would say Sammy had a pretty great birthday!!
