One year older and taller too…

The highlights of his birthday included:

Getting a Pop-it in his birthday bucket, because he “never thought he have the opportunity to have one!” (kids are surprisingly simple!)

Getting checked out of school for a lunch at Taco Bell, his choice, and his Dutch Brothers birthday smoothie.

Going inside the Mesa Temple during the public open house with his grandparents visiting.

And finally going to the BYU creamery next to the temple for his birthday treat – and having the entire crowded shop join us in singing Happy Birthday to him.

It’s great to be 8!
