Bridger's Birthday

Well it was Bridger's birthday on the 9th, at school he was the birthday boy in class, he brought doughnuts and everyone sang Happy Birthday to him in English and Spanish (he has like four or five kids in his class that only speak Spanish, and I think Bridger already knows more Spanish than I do) then later that night when Steve got home from school we went out to dinner at the Macaroni Grill (Bridger picked it because he wanted to eat squid for dinner because he wanted a shark/under the sea party, he also wanted shark fin soup, but I don't think anywhere has that, he does like seafood though). And he wore is crown and everyone their thought he was so cute and so they gave him a lot of attention.
We ended up celebrating his birthday on the 10th because Steve didn't have school. So we picked Bridger up from school and went to the Children Museum in down town Indianapolis, it was a blast, their was so much to do and so many things for the kids to see, they even had a under water/shark section. He loved the Dinosaur's and so did Shaylie, they had so much there that I can't even name half or this would be way too long.
So after that we came home and opened presents and had cake, Bridger got a lot of stuff and a lot of sea/shark stuff, but one present he got was a computer game called "Spore" it was a great gift from Steve that Bridger plays all the time. He is always on the computer and I have to now set time limits on it, (that's also why it has taken me a few days to get Bridger's birthday pictures on the blog) but, it's great because he doesn't make a mess.
Bridger really wanted a shark cake, so for the past week or so I was trying to figure out a way I could make a shark cake, and that is what I came up with, I thought is was cool because I found a red velvet cake mix and made the shark with it, so when you cut the cake it looked like blood, and that is what every six year old boy thinks is really cool.
I can't believe he is already six, I love to see my kids grow and learn and do new things but I also hate it because their not babies anymore. Where does the time go? They grow up so fast!


  1. You are such a good mom! I am so lazy! Once in a while I get a wild hair to try something fun, it usually fails! Kudos on the cake! Miss you, hope your having a blast! CUTE KIDS!

  2. Steve & Tracie - your kids are getting so big! I'm glad that we found your blog, they are much better than facebook!

  3. Tracie, I LOVE that picture of the family on the old bridge! That is like the coolest thing I have ever seen, and it is so you! I can see you blowing that up huge and framing it in your living room. It just goes with your house so perfectly! (At least the way your house was decorated in Utah.) We really miss you guys and can't wait to see you at Christmas. I wish we could go black Friday shopping together again this year, that was so fun!
