10 Facts about Conner! Did you know any of these?

  1. Conner is a party guy! He totally is always spoiled for his birthday. We normally have about 40-60 kids over for his birthday party. We also have many other friends and family come over from the neighborhood and out of state. He loves feeling special and we love celebrating him with so many awesome people!  We loved living on base in NJ. We may have been a hangout house with our hot tub, “baller” personalities, and hangin’ out at the shore. Pinatas, jump houses, sleepovers, and fun is a MUST.

6. Conner’s favorite season is Fall but he does not really like Halloween. Bring on the apple picking, pumpkin patches, bon fires, smores, jumping in leaf piles, camping, football watching, and this is one happy little one.

7. Conner LOVED doing science experiments until he was 9. We always had something happening or being tested. Pictured is Michael and Conner figuring out how to power a clock with soda. Once he turned 10, science was out and math is the new favorite subject. He is currently 2 grades ahead with it.

9. Conner has been to multiple amusement parks and Disney twice. This is my favorite picture since the next moment he learned he hates roller coasters. This was a mine ride at Disney and was not very scary. He insisted he wanted to ride it. My Dad, Michael, and I waited with him for over 1.5 hours until it was our turn. During the first turn, we all heard him scream, ” This is NOT FUN!” repeatedly. It was a long 3 minute ride for everyone. He hasn’t liked roller coasters since but has still tried some more.

10. Conner is a loyal fan. Once he picks a team that’s it. It does not change no matter where we move to later. His favorite teams are: Philadelphia Eagles (football), Golden State Warriors (Basketball), and Atlanta Braves (baseball). He has been to over 40 different professional sports games and over 45 shows/events since that is a favorite past time treat. He would rather go to an event any day over receiving material items for holidays/birthdays.
