First Birthday....

In the US at least. So, I'm not quite two months behind on getting this posted.... His Birthday was 5/21. Oh well.

He was soooo excited for his birthday. It was all that he talked about for about a month. First, he wanted everyone to know that he was going to be 5, and second, in case you didn't know,w hen you turn five, you automatically get a bike.

Of course the theme of the party, invites and cake, was Cars. When we went to pick up the cake the morning of his party he squealed. I mean loud, Oh Yes! He was so excited. He even wore the birthday boy ribbon that I got him. We had his party at Boondock's and he had friends from school and day care, and of course, the girls had to shove their way in to sit next to him. I have to say, it was a great place to have a kid's party (lots of lemonade for mommy, spiked by daddy of course) and they're pretty much contained in the building so you don't have to worry about them much. The problem is that they give you like 3 hours of party time. A.) that is a lot of time with other people's children for me and B.) that is a lot of time for me to be stuck in doors. I was going a little stir crazy by the time the last kid's dad came and got him. So glad we stayed longer though and went outside for go karts and mini golf with Boko.

His actual birthday was the following Thursday and that is when he got his presents from me, my mom and my grandpa (his came the day before he died). Of course the bike was a huge hit. He loves it. In fact he has decided that he is saving up his money (from losing teeth and just generally being good) to buy another bike. He currently is down to one training wheel and he only has that on because he can't quite balance himself to get on. In the last two days he has had some major falls too. But of course gets back up and on his bike.

I think that the pictures are pretty self explanatory!
