Happy 4th Birthday Brock!!

To start out Brock's birthday weekend, we all went out to The Rock Pizza for dinner Friday night. They hand out pizza dough for the kids to play with while they wait for their meal - just like playing with play-dough AND they can eat it!

Kade surprisingly was not feeling this - but he loves play-dough. Brock had fun and asked to play with it again the following day!

Saturday was the official birthday day and even though he asked if we were going to Chuck E. Cheese (last year's party), he said this one was better when we asked him later! Brock had such a wonderful time at Art Class last year, when we heard Miss Kelly does birthday parties, we knew this would be the perfect winter birthday party with a Star Wars theme!!

We made jet packs!!!

Two 2-liter plastic soda bottles taped together, decorated with colorful tape, filled with jet fuel (cotton balls) and jet magic (glitter confetti), complete with rocket booster "fire" (streamers)!!

Even Brent found his creative side when he helped Kade make his own jet pack!

Brock had a very specific group of friends he was inviting - Zoe, Elijah, and Kanoa and three friends from school - Ian, Jacob, and Tyson, and a very special cousin, Ara!

 Super happy smiles!

Then it was time for cupcakes! Star Wars themed! Guess which one Brock chose.

Darth Vader!!!

Ara came just at the right time for cupcakes! (Nap time sometimes totally gets in the way of fun things!)

Get that cupcake Kade!!

It was such a pretty day for Brock's birthday - the kids actually went outside and played on the playground at Kennydale Park! Worked out great to get some of those sillies out!

We came home and Brock couldn't wait to open up his presents and cards!

Thank you to so many people who helped Brock celebrate turning FOUR! It was exciting for all of us to count down the days to Brock's birthday and it turned out to be a really great day! Awesome January weather, party with no hiccups (and no one canceling for sickness!), happy smiles, and steak dinner for everyone!

Brock does not like to be the center of attention and did not let anyone sing Happy Birthday to him all day - not before, not during the party, and not at dinner time. Finally, after a nice bedtime story and the lights were turned off as I was tucking him into bed, I asked Brock one more time. "Can Momma sing you happy birthday now?" He nodded his head and quietly said yes. To end a wonderful day, I got to sing to my birthday boy. :)
