My baby boy turned 5. Wow. I can't believe it. But I think 5 is gonna be great! He's such a good kid. A little demanding at times, a little overwhelming at times, but mostly he's kind and loving and cares so much about other people. He had the best birthday week ever! My Mom flew in, which is always fun, and we had cake, ice cream, mini golf, rides at the kiddie fair, and tons of eating out (my favorite!). And we had his "friend party" at the National Academy of Gymnastics and it was SO AWESOME! We couldn't have picked a better place to have a party. Trampolines, a huge pirate ship to jump off of, an obstacle course for the kids to run through, rings, bars, everything 5 year olds want to do! My dad picked up all the kids and "flew" (they were pretending to be airplanes) them into the foam pit, and that was a huge hit! Thanks to my Dad and Robin for helping me so much that day! I felt so great that Dustin has such great friends in his preschool class and at church.
Oh yeah, and Tim turned 30! I feel bad for the guy because, let's face it, his birthday will always be overshadowed by Dustin's. But he got an amazing new alarm clock, an imac computer, and an r/c monster truck. He got Dustin one for his birthday (a monster truck, not an imac), and Dustin LOVES it. That was probably his favorite present. Apparently, Tim loved it too, because a week later, another one showed up on our door step. He reasoned that he needed one so they could drive "together". Who am I to argue with male bonding?
I have so many updates to give, I'll need another blog. But for now, I just want to say happy birthday to my boys. I love you both so much!
