Bradley turns 9

Bradley’s 9th birthday was yesterday, can you believe it? I can barely believe he’s 9 already.  And do you know how difficult it is to buy a present for a 9yo?!! He’s on the cusp of not wanting toys… and whatever he gets he barely plays with.  So, instead we decided to buy him a Nintendo DS Lite… and we quickly became the coolest parents ever yesterday 🙂

As for the day, we spent it quietly… we took the boys to the movies to see The Avengers…AWESOME movie!! Connor got a bit bored in the middle of it, but Bradley was enthralled! 🙂

Then my parents and Elaine (and her friend Natalie) came over for tea and a braai, and my mom baked one of her famous cakes 🙂 So clever!! She fashioned the cricket bat out of ice cream sticks and used Lego men for cricketers :)… and Kimo just LOVED all the attention 🙂

It was a good day… hopefully his party next weekend will be successful 🙂
