Sammy’s 8th Birthday

Way back in April Sammy turned 8!  We had a fun weekend celebrating him and doing lots of partying!  We started the birthday weekend off with a friend party at Pump It Up (a bounce house place).  Here everyone is yelling Happy Birthday to Sammy:

The theme of the party was Star Wars so he was sure to wear his Star Wars shirt!  He gave the slide two thumbs up (there was a lot of pictures like that, that weekend):

The next morning was Sammy’s actual birthday… so he got to open presents from us before heading off to his cousin’s birthday party (she was born almost exactly two years later):

We gave Sammy a Kiwi Crate subscription for the year.. he was super pumped about that gift:

The next day we had family over to celebrate with Sammy.  Of course we had to have more birthday cupcakes:
