Happy 5th Birthday!

This post is a bit late, but better late than never, right?

On the boys 5th birthday, they woke up to a room full of balloons. Since I had heard one of the boys leave the bathroom seconds before, Don and I ran to their bedroom door just in time to hear all their surprised gasps inside.

With the boys starting to get involved with superheroes, we thought some capes off Etsy would make a great birthday present. Unfortunately the women who makes/sells them never got back to me in time, so we came up with Plan B.

Plan B was to hurry and go to Joannes while the kids were in school and get the materials to make them myself. All three capes have a red side and a black side. Red is Super Man and the black sides vary with each cape -Captain America, Bat Man, and Spider Man. After 3 or 4 nights of sewing, the capes were done just in time for the boys birthday.

Since their birthday fell on a Saturday this year, they were able to have their birthday party on their actual birthday! Off to the park we went, where Daddy had lunch grilled and party ready.

I think ALL their little friends were able to make it to the party. Here are Andi and Jen's girls, some of Michele's kids and a couple of the boys.

At another table were Joselle's trio across from Cathy's boys and Trava and Lisa's children.

The weather was sunny, but really windy! We had a bunch of balloons, but had to keep them in the car since we could tie them down anywhere. The kids all still had plenty of fun running all over the place.

After the Happy Birthday songs were sung, Pops tried to get Luke to put his face in the cake. It is just something the two of them like to do whenever cake is in the room.

The only thing better than a birthday party is when it is time to open presents!

The last order of the night was birthday wishes. The park had been so windy during their birthday party, that we hadn't been able to have candles to blow out. Don and I sang Happy Birthday to them one last time and the boys all made their birthday wishes.

Wyatt: I wish for cheesecake!
Jaxon: I wish to go to Chuck E Cheese!
Lucas: I wish for another birthday!
