Kade's 6th Birthday

Kade turned 6 today (Friday). He's the youngest of our four children and our only boy. He didn't make the transition from three to two wheels as early as I'd hoped, but he may still become a cyclist - at least he's OK with some of the fashion.

Two-fisted present unwrapping.

He got just what he wanted; a gun. It's the Hasbro Nerf N-Strike Firefly REV-8 (long enough name?). It's a fun toy. You load eight mini darts into the revolver-like cylinder, then pull back the cocking lever and pull the trigger to launch a dart. The cylinder rotates so the next dart is in position ready to fire (after cocking again).

But that's not all. The darts glow in the dark. And the gun flashes a light as the trigger is pulled so the dart is glowing bright as it leaves the gun. It looks cool in a dark room. The flying darts look like laser bolts in the Star Wars (and other SciFi) movies. (This review on YouTube shows the gun firing in the dark at time 6:15.)

Kade's been having a lot of fun playing with this Nerf gun. I've been shot many times. I've tried to interest him shooting non-human targets, but it doesn't last long.

Jolene made him a sweet Batman cake. Kade found it unattended and drove the Batmobile over the icing road leaving some nice ruts. Gotta love kids.

Kade also got a few other presents and a Hippity-Hop ball. Remember those? Of course you do, you probably have a scar to prove it. Every one I talk to who had one got some injury because of it.
