We’ve been celebrating Little Man’s fifth (eeep!) birthday around here this past week in between a few sessions I’m really looking forward to sharing. It all kicked off last weekend with a Star Wars-themed birthday party, complete with a Darth Vader invitation…
A few friends joined us for bowling, Star Wars treats including Light Sabers (dipped pretzel sticks) and Death Star Donuts, and lots of cupcakes topped with everyone’s favorite characters! At the end of the party the kiddos took home a storm trooper bag filled with more Star Wars goodies.
We woke up Little Man on Tuesday, his actual birthday, with cupcakes for breakfast—his favorite! He was really surprised but didn’t want crumbs in his bed so opted to eat at the dining table instead. It was a fun day, with swimming lessons, soccer practice, lunch at his favorite restaurant (complete with a candle in his pancake!) and LOTS of gifts. Oh, it’s so good to be spoiled once in a while.
My favorite memory from his birthday will be seeing his face like this:
When we gave him a new set of wheels… we didn’t want to spoil the surprise by grabbing his helmet before we went to the friend’s house it was stored at, but he jumped on and started riding right away!
A delightful birthday week, indeed. Here’s to celebrating the little things every day.
Little Man is loving his summer activities. Soccer, golf, swimming, library, and lots of time to play in between…. it’s fun to watch him do such “big kid” things.
