Spencers Birthday

Our little Spencer is 6 years old! I can not believe how fast time has flown by. His birthday was actually on Wednesday, but we were too busy for me to stop and post a blog, so here we are. Plus, we are having a little shindig today for him, so his birthday has been extended. Wednesday we got up and he got to open his presents. Then we all went out (Travis and I both had the day off) and bought an inkjet printer for the computer in the classroom so that Spencer can print all of his "work" that he does. He loves to design maps and street lights and stop lights on Excel, but we didn't have a printer to print them since it is our old spare computer. So Grandma Teese sent some money and we got a very inexpensive little printer for him. He loves it!
After our trip to Wal-Mart, he wanted to drive around Seattle and take pictures of street lights and stop lights for his work. (he crops pieces of pictures and makes his own-I will have to post one sometime soon for you to see) We went through a drive thru for lunch and also went to a Brown Bear car wash to observe vehicles becoming shiny. (another thing for a later post. got some fun video) To top it off, we went to Alki and played in the sand for a little while.
That night we had brownies and just hung out and printed pictures. We made a book for his pictures and creations, oh, excuse me, his designs, to go into. He had a good day.

Today we are going with Grandma Deone to the pet store. She is buying him a guinea pig that has already been named......Bert......(that's the name of the guinea pig on "Charlie and Lola")

We will fill you in on the rest of the days happenings soon. Until then, here are a couple of pictures from his birthday morning.

He had lots of helpers.

His new clothes from Grandma Teese and Papa Clair.

Our family at the beach. Travis loves his little tripod he got. Lots of family pictures are a result. (o:
