Hood #8 turned five… FIVE… FIVE!!!

To the boy who is always observing…

Who takes trips to the beach very seriously…


And loves it there more than anything…


Who believes ice-cream should be a way of life…


And loves the idea of doing school so very much…


And spends hours on his wonderful work…


Who loves 4X4’s enough to just sit next to them…


Who thinks hiking is a way of life…


In fact living outdoors… is essential…


He is surprisingly good at mini-golf… and outplays all his siblings…


And firmly believes he is as big as all his brothers…

And that anything they can do he can do too…

He is probably right!!!

There is an element of mischief…


Just slightly…


He is our super hero…

Who never stops making us laugh…


Who totally loves reading…


And spends hours everyday in books…


Blast from the Past

For our boy who never stops laughing…


For our boy who loves cooking…


For our boy who takes feasting very seriously…


For our boy who takes playing to… A whole new and involved level…


For our boy who is growing up way too fast…




Happy Brilliant birthday…


May Five be filled with fabulous fun!!!
