7 year old birthday

My young friend turns 7 tomorrow. Here are a few of my favorite things in regard to his special day:

1. trying to find just the right gifts for him-a budding geologist

2. finding geodes for him to crack

3. hoping that they will have some crystals inside

4. and hoping they are not too hard to crack

5. trying to grow my own rock candy; a good idea but only a small layer formed on top

6. my mom finding some pre-made rock candy at a gas station

7. finding pop rocks

8. making a "You Rock" card

9. hoping he loves all his gifts

10. delivering them tomorrow
