The Birthday

was AWESOME to say the least.  My boy is now five and although it feels like it happened overnight, I can still think back and look at all my photos and remember all the things that make him him.  I love those things.  Each and every one of them.

Look how hard he is wishing. 

His little cheeks squished like sweet apples in his hands.

We had 40 adults and 24 children at the house and boy did we have fun.  I barely have any pictures of the birthday boy though because he spent the entire time in the pool.  He was one big wrinkle by the end of the day.

Here we are just after he blew out the candles on his Robot cake.  I guess I’m the only one into the family portrait.  Drats – will I ever get a good one?

Cubby tried the slip n slide for the first time.  He couldn’t get enough.

Here he is dragging himself out yet again to go for another round.  Reminds me of Platoon.  He was exhausted.

I always think I will take a gazillion pictures on his Birthday but the truth is that I’m too busy being hostess.  The ones I did get are keepers for sure.  The rest of the weekend was just as great and I’m still recovering.  I can’t believe it has been a week and I’m still tired.

Monsta had his show at school today for the Grandparents and when I can figure out how to cut down the video, I will post it.

Have a great weekend!
