Birthday Week, James Edition

So we like to do birthday's up big around here, in case you don't know that. James actually had a pretty mild birthday week though, gotta save up for when he really knows what's going on! But here's the run down...

Monday of last week we had a family birthday party with my side of the family. We get together every other month or so to celebrate whoever we need to celebrate! This month is was Ryan, James, Jaime and Daren. It was great fun and a big crowd! I don't think James totally understood that it was partly for him, but he loved the cake and the gifts!


On his birthday I took Beth and James to Chuckecheese. It wasn't crowded at all, so we had a good time playing games and riding rides. They both thought buying prizes with tickets was just about the coolest thing ever! After lunch we went over to the mall to visit the Easter bunny. James liked seeing him from a distance, but the whole sitting on his lap thing was pretty much out of the question. Beth loved him though!


That evening we had the Owen side of the family over for a little shindig. Nothing like pizza and cake and ice cream! James LOVED his "race car" cake! I had to do my best impression of daddy's car since its James' favortite thing in the world. All in all it was a fun birthday and James absolutely loves all the gifts he got. He got lots of hot wheel cars and planes and helicopters. All big hits! Plus a dump truck, books, puzzles, a fire truck and a few other things! Spoiled kid!


We sure love our James!

That is one cool cake. What a lucky boy! My kids are lucky if they get sprinkles on their plain old rectangle cakes! Happy Birthday James!
