This little boy turned 6! He counted down to his birthday and couldn't wait.
Showing off some presents--new movie, gum, new helmet (2 other kids borrowed and broke his other one :-/), chalk, new shoes.
We've never thrown Carter a party for his birthday. That was his request this year. He wanted a volcano cake, so we decided on a dinosaur theme.
Baking soda dinosaur eggs for the kids to crack open and spray with vinegar
Matt's the designer of this volcano cake
A few relay games we did outside
(I've never posted about our new basketball court! We put it in at the beginning of March. With 4 boys--5 counting Matt, we knew it would be put to good use. Caleb is out there all. the. time.)
Pizza, jello, and apples
Opening some presents
Dry ice in the cake made it super cool and exciting
Paleontologists cracking open dinosaur eggs
The kids also did a scavenger hunt at the end with dinosaur footprints in order to find their goody bags to take home.
Carter had an exciting birthday!
My birthday was low-key this year, which I was fine with. The most excitement from my day came from trying to do a nice thing for Carter to eat lunch with him at school on our shared day and bring cookies for him to pass out to his class. They have to be store-bought per school policy, and it turned out there were just enough cookies for his class and not an extra one for Bryson. Things quickly escalated to the hugest meltdown Bryson has ever had in public and one of my most embarrassing moments! It's impossible to pick up a screaming and kicking toddler when you're also trying to hold and manage a baby. :-/
Matt's birthday is today!! 34 looks good on you Sweetie!
