Today was Ledger's 4th birthday. I can't believe how fast time has flown. Everyday this kid makes me smile, laugh, and thank God for blessing us with such an amazing kid.
We had a very big weekend of celebrations. Boom Ma and Boom Pa, Emmy and Josh, Oma and Doodah all came over on Saturday morning to help us build Ledger's present... A big swing set! (Actually, this is a combo gift for both kids from all three sets of grandparents plus us.) Everyone worked all day on Saturday in the unusually cold weather and got it mostly complete before the party that night.
We meet Grammie and Papa for dinner at Carlos O'Kellys where Chris and Josh took the cinco de mayo "El Guapo" challenge. They stuffed 5 spicy enchiladas and 1 taco into their mouths in 10 minutes! They were miserable. For his birthday, Ledger got to wear a sombrero and eat fried ice cream, of course!
After dinner, we all came back to the house for a special party. We had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party! ledger got lots of great present including a full set of skates and a knight armor set! He loved his turtle cake and decorations. :)
On Sunday, we woke up early and got back to work on the swing set. By 2 o'clock it was finally finished. The boys loved playing on it! We are so thankful that our family could help us build it... We would have never gotten it done without them.
Ledger had another birthday dinner with the Michels on Sunday evening. By the time we got home, he was exhausted and fell asleep while I was running his bath!! He was partied out!!
