Talvyn turned 9 this year! He received Animal Crossing for his 3DS which has become his new obsession. He is learning about economics, finances, leadership, and social interactions from a video game. Of course if it were truly life-like it wouldn't be so much fun. He didn't want a birthday cake this year. He wanted Grandpa's Cookies (our name for no-bake oatmeal cookies). Only Wrangler and Jesica were around for the treats so there was plenty for all with leftovers for the next day.
Earlier in the day we went to Despicable Me 2 with Grandma and Grandpa Fuhrmann and Daesha and Drew. Grandpa had a nice $10 nap inside the theater. Afterwards, we took everyone to lunch at Tucano's.
