After preschool Carter gave me a birthday gift...my 5 year old took a nap! Ok, so that is a normal occurrence at our house but it made me stop and reflect a little. Oh how I appreciate my Carter! There are so many reasons he was meant to be our first child!
Drew came home from work early and we celebrated his birthday with a few neighborhood friends and his pal Zoe from church. We played a few games, played with toys, bashed a pinata, and ate birthday cake. Carter requested a motorcycle cake so this is what Tay and I came up with- it is supposed to be motorcycles driving up boulders and dirt. I didn't have chocolate frosting so it didn't turn out like I was hoping it would. Oh well! The crushed oreos were well worth it!
We opened gifts in the evening and Carter was in heaven! He was very enthusiastic about all of his gifts. Tay, on the other hand, was not. She didn't quite understand that it wasn't her birthday too. Here is Carter trying out his new "soldier gun". As you can see, Tay has already shed some tears at this point. We finally got out her squirt gun from the summer so she could have a "soldier gun" too.
