A special day!

Yesterday was Jack's 10th Birthday! hard to believe my little guy is in double digits now.
Jack loves to fish and that is what he wanted to do yesterday.
Mike was working.
So what is a Mom to do? I certainly could not say NO.
So I bucked it up, and headed over to a friends house on the Lake.
I knew my own dilemma would be to get the hook out of the mouth.
It was not so bad, a glove and pliers does the trick.
Jack is very patient when it comes to fishing. You see he can sit there for hours like you are suppose to.
Alex on the other hand wanted NO part of it...
In fact I am pretty sure he is out there with his friends talking about girls!

Alex is the one in the blue life Jacket, I love teasing him about his new found muscles.
Jack caught around 5 fish.  They were all small, but none the less they were a catch.
Now this is one UGLY duck.  This little guy was a begger, and Jack and I cracked up, because he would not leave the area, all he did was sit there and flap his mouth.  
We did give him the left over worms.
Later on in the evening, we went out to dinner just the four of us.
Then our friends invited us over for  a bit.  They have a cotton candy machine...
you put two pieces of candy in it, and then wait for it to heat up and take your cone and swirl it around.
Jack chose jolly ranchers, oh that was so good TOO!

All I can say, Is Jack we LOVE you so very much!
You were not the best of babies,
always full of energy,
crawled out of your crib at nine months old...
never slept well..
You bit your brother, not sure how many times..
(Super Nanny helped me lots, the naughty corner was his enemy)
You kind of scared me as I thought I had a little terror on my hands.
You truly grew up to be the kindest, sweetest most loving little boy I know.
Not to mention...you are one cutie PIE!
XO

See you all later for the newbie party.

What a great mom thing to do. I'm sure he completely enjoyed his birthday because of that. He is a serious cutie pie. He has those gorgeous eyes - the girls are going to be calling at your place in a few years. :)

Happy Birthday, Jack! At the risk of embarrassing you, I totally agree with your Mom, you are a cutie pie!

Debbie, that was a great Mom-Son thing to do. You know, regarding that duck -- maybe he was trying to say he wanted to do some "Blogging & Blabbing!" lol!!!

Happy birthday to your little man! He is so darn cute!!! My youngest son used to crawl out of his crib and tear his room apart, I stopped giving him naps before he was 1 because it just wasn't worth all the tidying up!

Oh they grow so fast...enjoy!!!

Happy Birthday, Jack!

My aunt has those same ducks in her apartment complex in Florida. They look like they are wearing masks.

Happy B-Day, Jack! That duck is sort of scary looking, not as bad as the squirrel with funky eyes though.

What a sweet post for Jack. He is a cutie that is for sure. I've never seen a cotton candy machine, how cool is that. Great job on taking him fishing! I would have enjoyed that too except for the taking the hook out the mouth part. Yuck! LOL!

Oh my what a cutie, really adorable and that dimple, lady killer...I always wanted one of those cotton candy machines! Love this post

Happy B-day to Jack. He's a cutie. Sounds like it was a great day for all of you. :)

I can relate a bit. My son was the perfect baby, but once he turned two, he was a terror. (The terrible twos lasted several years for him - lol)! He'd have so much energy, he'd literally bounce off walls and was always covered in a sheen of sweat cuz he kept going, going, going. Once he turned around 10 or 11 and I started homeschooling him, it was like a switch went off, and he mellowed out. Now he's one of the most mellow and empathic people I know.

Cheers,
Tracy
