Overheard From the Back of the Van

Lukas:  Mom, how old are you?
Me:  I'm 38.
Lukas:  Wow! That's really close to 40!
Me:  Yep.


Lukas:  How old is dad?
Me:  40
(Lukas starts laughing hysterically)
Me:  What are you laughing about?
Lukas:  Well, I said that you are almost 40, and dad actually is 40! That's so funny! (more laughing coming from behind me)

Me:  (just because I couldn't help myself even though I knew the answer could be bad)   So... who did you think was older?
Lukas:  Dad. I knowed he was older.
Me:  How did you know that for sure?
Lukas:  Because he's bigger than you. Duh!

You really have to love 5 year old logic!

Newsflash - Mikah Turns 7!!!

Breaking News... the Super Heroes were out in full force today in order to help Batman (Mikah) celebrate his 7th birthday.

Capes and masks were required. These super heroes thumb their noses at 'ordinary citizens' when they all get together...

Batman, AKA the birthday boy, was the first to fly to the scene of the top secret partay...

Captain America was next to make an appearance.

Spiderman swung over the city in order to get down with his friends...

The Hulk made his presence known...

Wolverine knew that the party wouldn't be able to start without him...

And just what do Super Heroes do when they get together? First, they compete. They are always striving to be the best they can be.  They practiced leaping over tall buildings; having races to show off their "super speed"; they showcased their "power punching abilities"; and they practiced ducking and dodging fast incoming projectiles! But we can't forget that there is also a softer side to Super Heroes - they even took it upon themselves to help a dottery old lady (played by the birthday boy's dad) get across the street safely. And I think that was the hardest test of all; that old biddy sure had a mind of her own!

All of that hard work sure gave the Super Heroes a super-sized appetite. Being so super all the time uses up a lot of energy don't you know.

When their bellies were super-full and bursting, they showered Batman with some super-awesome birthday presents.

These sure are some super-friends that Batman has!

And just like that, the party was over and our Super Heroes bid one another adieu as they took again to the skies.
