Sam has been awaiting his 8th birthday for weeks and counting down to the minute he would turn eight. His birthday began with a kiss at 2:22 a.m. from mom - Sam promptly rolled over and said, "I'm tired." At 4:30 a.m., I tried again when he was up running to the bathroom - "Happy Birthday Sam." This at least received a big smile and a "Thanks!" before he ran back to bed!
After a McDonald's breakfast from Nana - he began opening his presents- he made out like a bandit! Sam's lunch choice was Hyvee Chinese and after a few hours of swimming, we were off for his birthday party at the Kernel's game with 13 of his friends.
Sam threw out the first pitch - his pitch went the distance and Chris thinks it averaged a speed of about 20 mph. Not bad for a lefty pitcher! A hot, but beautiful night at the ball park complete with lots of G2, Culver's ice cream cake and a win by the Kernel's.
Happy Birthday little peanut butter bear!
