Caden turned 10!!!
We had an ultimate frisbee party for him two days after his actual birthday - which we celebrated with Grandma, Grandpa, Rachel and Brennan. On his actual birthday we had Mongolian Beef and homemade french fries (per his request). And chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and chocolate chips on top.
The birthday party pictures are in reverse order, oh well!!
So these first pictures are of the game that the boys played after Rich and Brennan taught them the fundamentals of ultimate.

This picture makes me laugh because the
kid with the red bandana appears to be having so much FUN!!
This Caden doing the kickoff at the beginning of the game.
Before the game, we had the boys do some drills. They
learned all the different types of throws and we even practiced
diving catches. We blew up the GIANT silver inflatable couch and
had them jump onto that while trying to catch the frisbee.
The looks on their faces as they did this were priceless.
Every one of them makes me laugh, I just posted a couple.

After the drills, we played ultimate frisbee. Rich was captain of
the blue team and Brennan was leader of the red.


Team RED
the winners!
I am pretty sure the birthday boys team earned the win :)

I don't know why I've never thought of french fries going with Mongolian beef? Genius. Love the pictures of the boys diving. Can't believe he's in the double digits!

Looks like a beautiful day and a great birthday. You always plan the best and most creative birthdays. Love hearing about it, but can't believe how old your kids are. I remember holding an almost 1 year old Caden and walking around outside the Cardon house while he cried for you. It doesn't seem that long ago.
