This boy of mine keeps getting older and older and I don't like it. I keep saying that every year so I don't think it's going to change. This year he turned 11.
As always, he wanted to have his birthday dinner out at the Lobster Shack in Cape Elizabeth where he always has a hot dog and fries.
Afterwards, there is plenty of time for rock climbing and shell collecting.
Of course, we had some presents to open too.
The past few years have been all about Lego's and that didn't change this year.
Even the cake (which he helped make) had Lego candles. He doesn't want to have his birthday party until the summer when we can do a backyard tent sleepover with some of his friends.
He graduates from elementary school in a few weeks and moves onto junior high. He's taking up running this year and seems to want to keep it up. He's a great kid and we are lucky to have him. If only he would just stop growing up so fast!
