Trey is turning 7

Trey is turning 7! He is getting so tall and becoming smarter with each year that goes by. School comes naturally to him and even though he is working a grade ahead he has maintained all A's this year with not a lot of effort on anyone's part (someday I will have to post about the poem he was asked to work on and recite from memory - not my finest parenting hour - but he pulled that one off for all of us:)) He is currently OBSESSED with all things sports - honestly, I have never seen anything like it. Each morning he wakes up, comes into our room and turns on Sportscenter. This last year he has cried during many football games vowing to never watch football again only to return to it two days later (the Boise State Nevada game was heartbreaking for him - he cried himself to sleep that night). He plays soccor in the fall and spring and basketball in the winter. He reads non stop, his best friends at school are Saad and Patrick. He loves being with the Campbells down the street and if he could be anywhere it would still be with cousins!

Even though we have decided to only do friend parties when our kids turn 5, 8, 12, and 16 - we always celebrate on a weekend and on their actual Birthday in any way they want. Trey chose to go to Birmingham to the childrens museum and IMAX there. Here are some of the shots I was able to get with our flip camera.

The weather reporters:

Everyone's favorite, petting the sharks:
The water center was fun - JK and Toby especially liked it.
The distortion room:
The kids built an arch but couldn't wait to destroy it

Trey loves all things science:

Each kid taking a turn trying to see who was the strongest:

Trey has everyone beat!

Happy Birthday Trey - you changed our life 7 year ago and I have said it so many times, but I will say it again - because of you I know what true joy feels like! We Love YOU!

I'll always remember how excited I was to meet Trey in the hospital. I drove down w/ Dad & baby Abby because I couldn't wait! Abby seemed so big sitting there next to that sweet little baby boy. He is such a joy to be with. I live watching him play with my kids. He does love all his cousins. Happy birthday, Trey!

That looks like such a fun day. Happy Birthday, Trey! JK is getting prettier with every picture you post. Her and Ella would be BIG trouble together...I can't just feel it. ;)
