Ooh, some good thoughts! The arcade trip would be great, except that he goes to one every couple of weeks or so already... I tell you, this child is being spoiled rotten! Except that he isn't... he's a wonderful kid in spite of it.
Grant has a ton of gamestuff, including an Xbox at his mom's house and another
one at my brother's house... I hate to contribute to what I think is an unhealthy overload of Electronic Stuff, y'know? But if nothing else comes to mind, that's a good surefire solution, something I know he'd enjoy. Good thinking!
Heelies, hm? Sheesh, I want some of those myself!
They are SO COOL! I like this idea... and Grant and I make jewelry together, actually, mostly for the women in his life -- but I do have a really neat piece of rough turquoise that I could wirewrap for him as a pendant... hadn't thought about that, thanks!
Grant has every Lego, every Lincoln Log, every Tinkertoy, every magnetic construction kit, every POSSIBLE thing that comes in no less than 10,000 pieces... and he stores them exactly where your son does, Snuzy. :-)
A model, now there's a thought! Grant's extremely hyper, but maybe he could do it a little at a time... ooh ooh ooh howbout a model of one of the planes his Grandpa used to fly in the Army? They could build it together, when Grant comes to visit...
Okay, you guys are BRILLIANT! We can do several of these ideas, and it'll be a wonderful birthday! Thank you all so much!
