A little belatedly, I need to wish Jonathan a happy birthday. His birthday was a week ago, and he turned five!!!!! He thinks it is time to go to Kindergarten, and was disappointed to learn that he has to wait until August.
On Saturday, we had a "kids" party. Jonathan invited 5 of his friends, since of course he is five. I had all sorts of games planned, but it turns out they just wanted to play with cars and trucks. So we let them play outside for awhile before we served up the "motorcycle cake." Jonathan picked out his cake and it was probably the easiest one I have ever decorated.
On his actual birthday, we had a dinner with the grandparents and Mr. Larson, this time with Shoo Fly cupcakes for dessert. Then he opened yet more vehicles, which was all he wanted for his birthday. He ended up with new cars, trucks, airplanes, motorcycles, Speed Racers, transformers, and Cars cars. He is still in heaven, trying to decide which vehicle to play with each day.
Happy Birthday, Jonathan!
