Birthday Celebrating

Spider Man had a great birthday.

Presents from the grandparents and parents...he got presents 3 days in a row!


   
 I'm not saying I'm Spider Man...
 I'm just saying no one has ever seen me and Spider Man in the same room.
 New fishing pole and lures...
 
   Venom!

He chose fishing for his birthday adventure...
Spider Man shirt - Check
Spider Man fishing pole - Check
Spider Man tackle box - Check!
They were so cute walking along with their poles and tackle boxes.  I felt like I needed to start whistling some Andy Griffith.
 I think Owen enjoyed it more than Anderson and I think we'll be going fishing again in a few weeks when a certain big boy turns 6.

 

 
   
 

 
 Owen wanted some pictures of him casting.  He is getting pretty good at it.


When Anderson tired of fishing, he and I took a walk around the lake.  From across the lake looking back at the bridge we were fishing from.

After dinner, it was finally time for cake.  I don't think we have any birthday cake pictures of him with a shirt on...at any age!  Hahaha!

Grinning from ear to ear being the center of attention!  I wish the camera could fully capture it.

 He requested a strawberry cake and green candles.  Owen was my great helper with the cake.


He has declared that now that he is 4, thumb sucking is only for bedtime...let's hope he can pull that off!

Happy 4th Birthday, handsome boy!

K5 Graduation

I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that kindergarten is already over.  How is there a 1st grader in our house?!!

Picture with Mrs. B as we dropped him off for the last time.  Wow, he has grown so much this year.
The Grandmas worked hard to keep Anderson entertained while we waited for the program and graduation to start.


Marching in for 'Kindergarten Boot Camp'...it was so cute.  They sang songs about many of the things they learned in school this year...learning to read, days of the week, months of the year, Bible verses, pledges and songs.  

 He's over on the far right.
 H is for Honor thy father and thy mother.  He was excited about getting to talk into the microphone.

Boot Camp program is done...time to 'gown up.'
He was very excited that he was receiving a 'real, live' diploma.












 After graduation, we had a reception and then the kids all headed to the bowling alley...hyper and crazy kids for sure!  I couldn't get Owen to stay still long enough for a decent picture.
