Nevertheless, we were excited for him to join us on "date night". The steak was good, but I think a trip to the kitchen to make his OWN ice cream sundae AND a pound cake to celebrate the occasion was his favorite part.
The following day was Brock's birthday party with all his friends. We invited all the kids from his pre-school, but only 8 RSVPed (slightly ridiculous that the RSVP rate is 50%) and then 2 of those children ended up getting sick the day of the party! Glad that my good friend Beck was flexible and could join us with her two boys!
Brock LOVES to swim, so we thought how cool would it be to host a pool party in January! We love the heated indoor pool at the gym and all the kids loved playing in the water! After getting changed back in to street clothes, we met at the basketball courts for some pizza and cake!
LOTS of cake! We had enough cake to last a week of celebrating!
Came home to enjoy all the amazing gifts from the party - what a blessed little boy!
Sunday was Brock's official birthday and we started our celebration with Grandma. We headed there for lunch with part of the HUGE birthday cake from the party the day before so we could all enjoy cake again!
Kade is opening presents in these pictures because my mother had purchased some new things to replace duplicate presents he received from Christmas.
Besides a lovely gift he received from Grandma at her home, his other presents from her were waiting for him at home. Finally! Some snow boots and snow pants! We sized up so we can wear them this year and next!
We opened a few other presents, calling Aunts & Uncles and Grandparents so they could all talk to the big FIVE year old!
|I think Grammy & Grandpa scored on this one!|
Thank you to everyone for helping celebrate with us all weekend! We have a five year old!!
