Kolby is our most energetic kid by far. He loves to be outside, doing physical activities. He is amazing with his biking skills, he can win any sword fight with his light saber tricks, and he can run anyone into exhaustion. Needless to say, we have a hard time keeping up with this guy.
As much as he likes to be moving around, Kolby is quite addicted to whatever treats he can get a hold of...even if that means sneaking downstairs in the middle of the night to get them. I am always finding wrappers thrown under his bed from his little escapades. He is good at sneaking, but not very good at hiding the evidence. Consequently, he spends a lot of time being punished for his crimes, but according to Kolby, it is all worth it. We are hoping this is a phase he grows out of.
On to his birthday. I always try to make the kids' birthdays as focused on them as possible, so they get to choose all their meals for the day. Kolby wanted a pancake and sausage dog, with fruit and juice. For lunch, he had a special luncheable, where he got to build his own little hamburgers, complete with a caprison drink and a treat. For dinner, he wanted Nachos. We basically built up tacos on tortilla chips, and I must say, the meal was excellent.
Then, after riding around a bit, we came back inside and had Key Lime Pie for dessert. None of the kids really eat cake, so we get to find other fun desserts to have for our birthday parties.
