My big 6 year old!!

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

My big boy Zai has turned 6!! We had a very exciting (& busy) day:

It began with our traditional present hunt ( a treasure hunt where I make up clues on the gift location).

We gave Zai his own bible. Since he is reading now, I wanted him to be able to follow along at church !

Here he is sporting our other gift to him - his own AFL guernsey, shorts & socks... & the team... the Lions of course!!
Oh yeah & I even enjoyed his pressie (bet you didn't think I would put this one in Dave!!)

After breaky we went down to the local footy ground & had a game of modified AFL - girls vrs boys - of course we let the boys win ( being Zai's birthday & all !!!LOL)

We then went to the playground !

Zai had to put his new "Lions" towel around his shoulders after the game (just like on "cheaper by the dozen"!)

He had a very dodgy cake (meant to be an AFL ground) - never mind it tasted delicious!


You are such a blessing to all of us!

Zai ended the evening with some special time with Grandpa!
Thanks for being here Nanny & Grandpa - we love you very much & miss you a lot.
