Eleven is a big birthday for our grandson Miles. Being the youngest grand he is always trying to catch up to his older brother. Alex is only 17 months older, but in Miles' world that is enormous.
We celebrated his birthday at our home last Saturday. There were decorations hung by the grands! Our son, Grady, lets the boys decorate for parties and so when they had the party here, we let them do the decorating.
Miles is like the rest of us and enjoys everything that has to do with the ocean. So we went all out at the Dollar Tree and bought ocean themed table cloth, napkins, plates, and we even served crab legs--Miles' favorite!
Samuel and Alex climbed the ladder and attached streamers to the fan and the crown moulding. It was fun watching them handle everything!
When Grady was a Cub Scout he and his Dad made a giant Ho Ho cake for a father son bake-off. They won first place all those years ago. Miles had heard about this and wanted a giant Ho Ho cake for his birthday. So we (the boys and I) made the cake for the celebration.
These two guys don't like crab legs, so they enjoyed pasta for their meal.
Miles enjoyed his day and is happy to be ELEVEN!
