Eric's Birthday!

We cannot believe it!! We have a 5 year old!!! How crazy is that?? Eric turned 5 yesterday! He keeps saying that he's not 5 because he isn't bigger. I really think he thought he was going to be all grown up when he turned 5!! He is so funny. We started the day by having his birthday breakfast request...french toast. (Andrea, I've been so hungry for that since church on Sunday! Smelled so yummy!) Then we just kinda hung out at home. Had his birthday lunch request...Mac and Cheese and baked beans! Then we got ready and went to buy balloons. He HAD to have balloons! He really wanted to have a party with friends and family but didn't tell me that until the day of so...maybe next year! He wanted to go to the playground and play and then out to eat so that's how we celebrated. We came back and had cake and opened presents. I think we all had fun and he was so excited with his Lincoln Logs he got and water balloons! He also loves his Frisbee but that needs to be a park thing I think! I had to run all the way down the block to retrieve it today. He threw it and then it rolled and rolled and rolled and kept on rolling down the street! WHEW! Gave mommy a good workout!

Happy Birthday Eric!

We helped build that playground when we were youth (mutual) so I'm surprised you just found out about it--we visit it almost every time we are up.

Happy Belated Birthday Eric! I remember a youth service project building that playground. I loved going to Riverview, and think its sad its not open anymore.
