a big birthday boy!


holy cow i can't believe trey boy is 4! it actually hit me pretty hard that day. i cried a little buying his birthday card and balloon at fred meyer :o) i am such a sappy thing these days. i just really love these kids and time is just flying!

the morning of his birthday we had this bike waiting for him outside. he has been asking for a "big boy bike" for the last few months. we had a hard time deciding between this one and one that was a size smaller. we went for the bigger one hoping he could handle it and then be able to ride it longer.

(look at lucy wishing it was her birthday :o( i got her a kitty balloon to try and ease the pain.)

he wasn't afraid of it's size and hopped right on that horse! things were going great until he tried to turn the corner and....





he was bucked right off! this was about the time went down and purchased the smaller bike.

we had a party at grandma & grandpa risenmay's house. hey have a very big and very cool blow-up waterslide, and grandpa smith brought the house down with another one of his magic shows.

we ended the party with a very colorful cake. which by the way i did not make. (i banned myself from making a cake this year after i was up till 1 am last year, and caught myself calling the cake a naughty word. this year went much smoother :o)
