Last night we celebrated Ben’s 6th birthday. 
We always do a clue-based treasure hunt for birthdays so Kait had put together 5 clues and Ben had to use the clues to find his gift. 

This was funny.

The last clue took him to his closet where Ryan had put his birthday gift, a new 16″ bike.  Ben opened the door to the closet and was so set on finding another clue that he totally missed the big bike sitting right in front of his face.  We all stood there giggling until finally Ryan said, Ben, is there something in your closet that doesn’t seem to belong?

He got really quiet for a second.  And then he saw it.

Suddenly he was shocked.  The gift went over quite well.

Ryan had taken the training wheels off before we gave it to him since Ben is past that. 

He was so happy he wheeled the bike into the hallway, got on it, and took off into the living room.  I raced after him, sure he was going to crash into something and bust his head open and spend the rest of the evening at the emergency room getting birthday stitches.  But he didn’t.

We told him not to ride his bike in the house again.

Poor guy though.  Today it is going to be 70 degrees but it is going to rain all day long.  He’ll probably have to wait until tomorrow to take his bike out on the open road.
