Zeke is seven! He actually turned seven on August 20th but things were a bit chaotic then - and your response is aren't they always? Which is mostly true. But in my defense, they were a bit more chaotic than normal. But I digress. He had a good party - Lego themed - with lots of his family & close friends and has been busily making Lego creations since then. I did a birthday interview with Ellie earlier this year and I thought I would try it out with him as well. He didn't hesitate at all - he just fired off answers one right after the other! After the interview, I included a few shots from his party that my Dad took. Zeke was so busy running around that day I'm surprised he was able to get any!
