Sweet Shot: birthday bonanza

I suppose y'all can guess where we celebrated Austin's 11th birthday yesterday.

Yup, the land of bonus tickets, birthday bonanzas and Chuck E's Sketch Book!

We were there for 5 minutes, when the Birthday Boy hit the Tower of Power jackpot THREE times in a row!


too many tickets=cotton candy and giant lollipops=trip to the dentist?

Maybe we should've wrapped up a toothbrush and some toothpaste instead of the skate ramp and light saber?


He was slightly excited.

Oh! I have to throw in this picture of Noah. Doesn't he look like a mannequin?!



{bahahahahaha!!!}

I am so easily amused.

In reality, I was just shooting his very intense concentration from the other side of this...


All in all, it was super fun for the almost smiling guys...


...and the girls!



HAPPY 11TH BIRTHDAY, AUSTIN!!!




Yo. This is part of Darcy's Sweet Shot Tuesday. Over and out.

So many great shots here. I love the ticker tape at the feet. It looked like a great celebration. Eleven is a great year. The last one before they start to truly grow up before your eyes. Always fascinating to see families of boys for this mom of three girls.

Leah said...

Hahaha, Noah totally looks like a mannequin and seriously, THAT'S what he was focusing on so hard?! Too funny. And is it me, or does Austin look a lot like harabagee (sp?) in that last pic?!

Carrie said...

Christine said...

So glad Austin had a good birthday and looks like y'all all had a great time! :) Wish I could have been there. It hasn't been that long since I've seen the boys, but man, they look like they're older. Happy Birthday Austin! I love you!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUSTIN!!! I'm embarrased to admit that I have never been to a Chucky Cheese in my life. I think I will have to remedy this just once this Christmas and take the kids just so their 'American culture' course will be complete! LOL! :o)

Tracy said...

Great shots! Happy Birthday Austin! So much fun!

Ali said...

those are such good shots! It looks like you all had a great time.

Happy birthday Austin!

Susan said...

So cute. I love the grin in the last one. We took our bobo to laser tag and video arcade for her birthday. I didn't really get any decent shots though.

Melissa Stover said...

that picture of noah made me laugh too.

Just Bits and Pieces said...

Great photo, Marsha. The tape piling up at his feet says it all:)

Carolyn Haines said...

What a great day. Thanks for sharing the images. The first shot is a complete classic.

Dawn Camp said...

Happy Birthday! And can I just say that you are a very brave woman. ;-)

Life with Kaishon said...

Can I say that he is beautiful. In a boy kind of way. Kaishon is turning 11 this year. I am having a nervous breakdown. How does this happen? I miss my baby.
