Happy 7th Birthday to Parker!!!

This year for Parker's birthday we decided to have a family birthday party instead of a friend birthday Party. Every year I go all out and invite a ton of people to celebrate it. This year I was wanting to keep it simple and try to avoid all the work. Maybe it's because I am about to have baby and I am EXHAUSTED ALL THE TIME!! So, we talked to Parker and asked him what he wanted to do and he gave us a few ideas. So here is what we did to celebrate his birthday... took him out to dinner and let him get anything he wanted, then he wanted to go to the pet store to look at animals ( just for fun) then we headed to Leo's and did laser tag and to play a few arcade games. This is the boys first time playing laser tag! They had a blast! After they were done with that, we came home and had cake and ice cream with just our family and he opened a few presents. I can't believe Parker is 7! It's even harder to believe that I have a 7 year old kid! The day Parker was born I remember how grateful I was that Heavenly father gave him to me. As I looked at this little baby boy, I remember feeling an overwhelming love for this boy. Some of the things I love about Parker are:
1. He is GREAT big brother
2. He is so helpful around the house
3. He never gives up on anything and he tries hard at everything he does
4. He is a hard worker like his dad
5. He is my first born baby
6. He is thoughtful
7. He has opened up to us theses last couple years and has expressed to us how much he loves us.
8. He is mature for his age and can handle responsibility that I give him
9. He will make a good salesman someday, he is always trying to make us "deals"
10.He has started to love to read books and I think him loving to read will make him a better student in the future. We love Parker and I am so happy he is my boy. Happy 7th birthday to Parker Nathan Blaylock!!!!
