It was kind of like a rerun of Troy's birthday: we went to the park, and we ate yellow cake with chocolate frosting that night. However, when we went to the park, I decided to get my kids up early and go. PERFECT plan! No one was there, and it was nice and cool. This time we got to go on the super big playing area.
We've had a poster hanging up in Jakob's room. We made it when he was in first grade, when they did a spotlight on him. I wanted to compare some of his favorites from then to what his favorites are now. So his favorites from first grade will be listed in green, and his favorites now listed in red.

We went to Arby's for dinner-his choice. It was yummy.
Then my parents came over, but they couldn't come until a little bit later. So we had the kids take baths and get ready for bed before they came. Hence the jammies.
Jakob got new scriptures, a scouting outfit, a Wii game...
...and clothes. Notice his excitement about the clothes below:
He was also not very excited about starting scouts at first, either. I told him that he could try it for a couple of months, and if he didn't like it he didn't have to do it. But then my mom took him to buy his shirt and badges and all that on his birthday, and then he got way excited.
Some Jake-isms for ya:
Jake: (coughs) Me: Jake, cover your mouth. Jake: Oh, sorry. It's just my asthma. (He totally does NOT have asthma.)
Beej to Jake: Do you have a girlfriend? Jake: Yeah, it's Ila. Beej: Is she pretty? Jake: Yeah, she's pretty....pretty HOT! (Yeah, Ila's not his girlfriend. Just a friend.)
I love my Jakob. He's turning into a little man, where he has actual conversations with us. He's so concerned that he's doing everything right. He loves anything science, and is a super good reader. He's a great older brother. He's really amazing at the different Wii games that we have. Jakob is super creative and really funny.
I love my boy.
