Zeke's Birthday Interview and Party

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!

  1. i love this post! freaking adorable.

  2. That is so cute. What a great idea to record his opinions every year. That will be fun to look back on. :) Stopping by from SITS.

    1. I hope so! I was thinking about compiling them all into a book for them when they get older maybe. :)

  3. Cute post! Your son is adorable! My kids LOVE Legos, too! We talk about Legos every day, and once they get a new set, they seem to be looking forward to the next.

    1. Thanks! :) Yes, the Legos are never ending it seems like, haha.

  4. Oh, what a sweet idea - I love that you interviewed your son! Something fun to look back on as well as his tastes change as he grows. Star Wars and Legos, I have to say he's a pretty cool kid :) Hope he had a great b-day!

    1. Thank you! It was a pretty fun day and I hope that I'll be able to compile the interviews into some type of little book for him later when he's older. :)

  5. So sweet! I interviewed my son on his third birthday, and plan to use the same questions each year. I can't wait to see what he comes up with in January for his 4th birthday!


    Visiting from SITS. Have a great weekend!

    1. Very cool! My daughter will be 4 next year and I'm sure her answers will be interesting too! :)
