Seth's 8th birthday! The ULTIMATE 8th birthday boy party!

THE ultimate 8th birthday party for boys has been found. This is the BMX bike park in Chandler. It's a dirt bike course with hills and ramps and hours upon hours of bike riding fun.
None of my kids were intimidated by the course. It was all systems go for 2 full hours!

Katie's bike was a little tougher to ride than the smaller boys bikes but she got right in on the action.

Oh yeah. My biggest boy was not to be left out, either. However, he did spend most of his time helping the kids ride.

Is this the sign of a happy boy? Sweaty, red faced and a soda in his hand? Love you Isaac!

Even Cassie got in on the action. She's 3 going on however old the next kid is. This kid is not to be left out!

Seth at his birthday party!

This is the starting point for the track. It's a little unnerving the first time down, but after that, it's a blast!

Some of the hills at the track.

All we had to do was have pizza and drinks off to the side and the boys came whenever they needed a break, but they never stayed long.

Isaac on the hills. This was the EASIEST birthday party I have ever put on. Boys and their bikes just go hand in hand. We sure had a great time!

Seth's baptism

You know, there are just those kids that you sigh over as you watch them grow up. Seth is one of those. This is him at his baptism. We had 5 kids in our ward baptized that day so the ceremony was short, but the ordinances were long. We had a total of 8 kids baptized in the month of Sept!

Both of Seth's primary teachers showed up for his baptism. Thanks Bro. Arnold and Bro. Haslip!

Two of my boys in suits. One day this kid's suit will be bigger, but have a name tag attached to it.

This kid has just been waiting to have his own scriptures. On the day his school had their read-a-thon, Seth wanted to take his Book of Mormon. What a great kid. (Sigh!)

Seth's in Cub Scouts!

My little Seth's a Wolf now!!! I can't believe it! This is his first belt loop... flag football! He was so excited to start. Probably the best part of turning 8 for him!

Now, I've decided that this outfit does NOTHING to help me out, but I loved seeing Seth make the Cub Scout sign!

Seth got his bobcat on his first pack meeting! He was really excited about that.
