happy birthday my sweet boy. we love you!

It is Mr. Kade's birthday today. I can't believe my baby is five. Sniff, sniff. We had a fun birthday party for him this weekend (far-away grandma and grandpa even got to come). I'll post more pics soon. 

I don't know what I'm going to do next year. I may cry everyday for a week or more. But today I am going to have fun with my little buddy and focus on the fact that he is here with me now. I need to go bundle up, because I'm pretty sure his next request is going to be a nature walk...off we go!

It was fun to have my parents here for part of the week. They were in Kansas babysitting my two nephews while my brother and sister were in Africa. It was a treat to be able to have cousin time as well as grandma/grandpa time. Today they had to leave, and apparently, by the pictures, Kade wasn't too happy about it!

A sign that you have been married a long time: you make the same silly face!
Grandpa, Kade and Henry had fun building a marble run.

The motion in this one tells it all.

A Birthday Party, Super-Hero Style

Let's go on a scavenger hunt!

Now we will go on an adventure!

Now it is time to open presents!

And now, let's eat our cake!

Pointing out the veggie tale candles!
What is that face all about, Kade?!

Oh wait, I almost forgot the super hero masks I made for all the kids! Those would have been perfect for our adventure...

our little super-hero!
