FAMILY CELEBRATIONKayden turned 8 and he believes it is now his lucky number, as with it comes a new set of scriptures, he has chosen to be baptized and he is now in Cub Scouts!
Here is our family celebration and gifts on his birthday.
I made chocolate covered cake balls, which he was so surprised and excited about.
Kayden with a new journal and new scriptures.
Playing his new Nintendo DS. Boston is just as fascinated to watch video games as to play them, so of course he is right there.
New fly fishing items.
Just happy to be his birthday.
Here's our new Cub Scout.
The next week, we had a science-themed friend party. We did about 3 experiments, had them make some cool flying things to take home, had a volcano cake with dry-ice and then took the snake out for his friends to view and hold if they desired (with adult supervision of course).
Here they are doing a bubbling-over experiment with vinegar, dish soap, food coloring and then baking soda.
The kids with their 'zippy zoomers'.
The volcano cake.

We didn't get any pictures of the party-goers holding the snake, but here are some of the boys holding on the next day.
