Eli turned six this month. For dinner on his birthday he wanted waffles with strawberries, blueberries and whipped cream on top. He was SO excited when I squirted TONS of whipped cream on top. He asked for a skateboard for a gift so while I was at Target looking at them another dad and I had a conversation about health insurance. Saturday we had a few of his friends over for a Pirate Birthday Party. We went on a treasure hunt around our neighborhood that ended at their treasure, or pinata. Then we made eye patches and oceans in bottles. Thank you to everyone who came! Then that evening Chuck took the kids fishing. Eli had 'the best birthday ever"
