I cannot believe this guy is 15 years old today!
In so many ways, it seriously feels like yesterday he was born. Kai has always been our "teasy cat" (a nickname his dad gave to him) and I love watching his sarcasm come out. He has some really good zingers, just like his dad.
Kai didn't really specify what kind of cake he wanted this year, but my friend Cynthia sent me a picture text one day of a shark cake that she said made her think of Kai (he is always telling her shark facts). It looked perfect for Kai and easy to do, so I hunted it down. Turns out it is made with the cake mold from the barbie doll dresses (apparently it's called a wonder mold; I'm cake illiterate). My mom has made more than her fair share of barbie cakes so I knew she'd have the mold. Kai LOVED it! It wasn't till after he got home from school that we decided that it needed some blood, like all good shark attacks.
We recently started a new tradition where I bring lunch to the kids on their birthdays. Of all the places, Kai chose Subway.... which is fine, it made it super easy for me since there is one in Hyrum, it just made me chuckle. We drove up to the church parking lot by the elementary school and he wolfed down a footlong, chips, drink, and cookie in less than 10 minutes. The metabolism of a teenage boy.
We ate dinner at Pizza Pie Cafe and tried to NOT watch the Olympics on the tv screen because we were a few days behind on our DVR. Micheal helps me choose a book for the boys each year and this year it was "Ripleys Believe it or Not: Eye Shattering Volume". I love those books!
Micheal and I sure are blessed to have such a happy go lucky kid that is kind and responsible.
Happy Birthday our (not so little anymore) Rumpkin! We love you!
