My guy turned 5 today. I can still feel him in my arms all warm and cozy swaddled. He was so excited to have his birthday today. First thing in the morning he got his whistle pop, something my mom always did for us. I remember how great it was to get those whenever one of us had a birthday. So to continue the tradition all three got them today and they were blowing away on them. The ones we would get had music inside the wrapper, jolly rancher needs to do that too.
Avery reading her card to him. She made it herself and is was very sweet. She got him a Ben10 watch. He swears he turns into an alien when he turns the dial.
His big gift from us was a big boy bike and helmet. We will be taking the training wheels off the next nice day we have and teaching him to ride without.
I am sure this next picture is going to end up on the blog Cake Wrecks. However I feel I first need to explain. For almost a year Keegan has asked for a banana cake for his birthday. It's what he has wished for every time we send off a balloon wish. So I had to deliver and this was the best I could come up with. He loved it though and that is all that matters.
In the nie tradition we sent off our balloon wishes for Keegan for the up coming year. Now that his banana wish came true he had to think of a new one....
Gone are the days of the big birthday parties. We decided that we are a built in party and we had a great time. We played pin the tail on the donkey, the kids got a wooden whistle and a bubble wand on there plates as favors and we all watched excited at what Keegan received. It was an awesome day.
