my big FIVE year old !!!

His birthday was Monday, July 13. We are kinda stretching the celebration, so guess its ok, that I didn't blog on his actual day. sorry dude.

We went to Tropicanoe Cove, a local water park on Sunday afternoon with grandpa. It was super cold water, but the kids loved it. Beckham slept the entire time, which made it easy for Andrew and I to swap bigger kid duty in the pool. The birthday boy had a blast... and was in tears when it was time to go.

We went on to meet my brother, aka, Uncle Monkey at Don Pablos for dinner. Brigham was super excited to get the attention with the Big Hat!! I was excited for the fried ice cream =)

Monday we got up and drove to Indianapolis to the Zoo. It was a perfect day, not too hot, and there was even a breeze. Again, baby brother Beck, slept thru the entire trip. He's gotten quite good at sleeping thru big outings. In case you haven't noticed.. we don't stop life when we have a baby. They just adapt to our lives.. which are usually quite busy! LOL

We finished off the day with a dinner at Brigham's requested desire to get in the saddle again.. so we went to TX Roadhouse! Grandma and uncle monkey met us again and we had a great time. The kiddos were pretty tired after having no naps, but they did great in the restaurant.

When we got home the computer was waiting for us, and so was a big package outside of our front door.

We i chatted with the Colorado grandparents and uncle Jacob and they got to watch Brigham open up his gifts. There were also a few surprises for Tatum and Beckham too.

After presents from mom and dad and some birthday cake.. our little guy finally made it to bed.

He gave me a hug and said " mom, that was the best birthday ever!".

awe... totally made my day. I love that he is content with the simplest of things. In fact when I greeted him in the morning with five hugs and five kisses, he, was so grateful, and probably would have been fine with just that. I love this kid.

so I am busy finishing his invitations for his party later on this month, and then we'll be done celebrating.

you're only five once right?

Wow. Five years old. It goes by so fast. And trust me... With baby #3 in the blink of an eye he'll be turning one. With each child it gets faster and faster... :-) Glad you had so much fun celebrating him!
