The boys turned 5 last month. I still can’t believe they are 5. Where did my babies go? On their actual birthday they had their special donut breakfast and mommy went to school with them. We also opened presents in the morning.
Then on Saturday they had a little party. Noah wanted a firetruck cake and Ezra wanted an ambulance cake. They are also super into legos now, so we decided on the easy route and topped their cakes with legos. There was also a firetruck piñata and games.
For the kids upcoming birthdays Gamma and Papa took them to build a bear. It was a wild good time. They each had a lot of fun watching their bears get made. Noah’s bear is Firman Sam, Ezra’s bear is Fireman in a truck, and Abby’s is Abigail.
We celebrated my birthday over a month ago, but never got around to posting. I wanted to do something new and decided on kayaking at Tempe Town Lake. It was amazing and we happened to time it just right and saw the sunset on the lake. Gamma and Papa watched the boys and made me a cake. We had to come home between kayaking and dinner because our butts were soaking wet. Did NOT think that through. We also went out for yummy Ethiopian food where I ate way too much and couldn’t eat any cake afterwards.
On the boys actual birthday we celebrated with ballons, donuts, a tea party, and pizza for dinner. They also had their school friends over for some PB&J’s at lunch. They had a lot of fun turning 4, but ask every day if they are 5 yet. Stop trying to grow up so fast boys!
(let’s just say Noah wasn’t dressed blog appropriate)
It’s hard to believe, but our wonderful boys are 3!. They are getting so big and so smart. They count to 30 with little issues, say please and thank you very well. If anyone sneezes or coughs within 20 feet of them they immediately say bless you. They know their ABC’s like the back of their hand, and even draw some letters and numbers when coloring. I love how quickly they are figuring stuff out. They still love thomas the train and lightening mcqueen. They spend a lot of time playing fiarly well together, trains, cars, mud in the back yard, riding bikes, and jumping off of stuff. They are still brothers and toddlers so they do have their moments, but all in all they are wonderful little boys.
We spread their birthday out a bit over the weekend. Train themed birthday party on sunday, complete with a kid sized track and wall tunnel. They boys loved it.
Then on to the cake! All week they kept wanting their fire. Not just candles, they wanted their very own fire to blow out. It was funny.
Monday (their actual birthday) We went to the zoo. They had a great time seeing some of their favorite animals. As always we took a few pictures to share!
