Jon's Birthday Survey and Celebrating 7!

We had a great day today celebrating Jon's 7th birthday. We started off with some number 7 pancakes.
Then he opened presents and he got the two things he really wanted: a Camelbak Backpack for bike rides and cool goggles like his friend, Ava.

We had to follow that with going swimming with our friends. His buddy, Ava, made him a special chair and then everyone posed around him. We followed that with the usual pool fun:

Next we went to Olive Garden as a family--and I somehow forgot to take any pictures, but I did remember to take a picture of him with his cupcake and #7 candle. :)

We rounded out the day with a quick survey to take a peak inside the mind of a 7 year old Jon. Here's the survey and his answers:

We love Jon's answers!!! That kid is hilarious and one of a kind. :) Ava is honored to be one of his favorite people. And we'll have to teach them Settlers together!

So cute that Jon and Ava are such good buddies! When did this little friendship blossom? Is it totally platonic??? ;)
