"In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding." Ephesians 1:7-8

On Wednesday, Luke was counting down the hours until he would turn EIGHT. 
All day he celebrated his last day as a seven year old. 

We had a great start to our Thursday with Luke sleeping in until 7am! Shocking for my early riser... he must be maturing. :) I've tried to convince him all 8 year olds sleep in until at least 7am. 
Then some school, homemade waffles, and gifts -- in that order (his idea). 
He was so excited to receive special birthday phone calls from family. 

Luke requested a small and simple party with good friends at a mini-golf park. 
The invites

The cake - The 8th hole!

 The guests (I love that Luke wanted to wear party hats!)
The very happy birthday boy with his cake, ice cream and strawberries!

We enjoyed a wonderful game of mini-golf on a beautiful day! 
Five kids and four adults... we had the course to ourselves. 

The 5 kids played together and did a great job negotiating turns. 

Darin won the adult game and even scored a free game! Wohoo!
Luke asked him to wear the party hat and he was humble enough to wear it the entire game. 

Dear friends for almost 8 years!

Then dinner out at Plaza Azteca with Grammy & Poppy. 
What a joyful day! I love him so much. 
How is it possible he's eight?
