On August 27th Marcus turned 6!
And this is how he spent his day:
He was up bright and early for birthday pancakes and the opening of gifts. Then he was off to his 8th day of first grade (1st day without crying!) Charlie, Gwen and I took doughnuts to his class for a treat. Marcus was King for the day! And they did treat him like royalty.
After school he got to open a few more things. His favorite gift: the skateboard.
For the afternoon party we headed to Jump-On-It. This was the crew: Charlie, Marcus, Sumner, Isaac and Porter.
And then we came home for cake and ice cream.
Thanks to all who made Marcus's birthday great!

And I had the time of my life...

We spent all of last week in Island Park, Idaho. We stayed at my uncle's extremely sweet cabin. We played in the water all day every day. I didn't want to come home. Here are a few pics from the trip!

Only regret: We didn't wash the sheets.
