Happy 4th Birthday!



AND NOW.....

Our little man turned 4 last week. He had been excited about this birthday for about 6 months. It's the first birthday when he's really aware of the excitement of the celebration. His 3rd birthday was nice, but he didn't make a big deal about it like he did with this one. This time he counted down the months, then the weeks, then the days...telling everyone he met how many days were left. The day before his birthday we had spent with the Las Vegas Life Learners group at a park and had a lovely time. Nicholas's actual birthday was a fairly quiet family celebration of Nicholas. He loves Spongebob Squarepants and so we had several gifts for him with the yellow guy on them. A little bat, a big ball, pj's, colouring book, swim shorts and a few other little bits and pieces. He was thrilled! AJ and Summer had hidden his presents around our suite and Nicholas enjoyed the treasure hunt. He was a little upset that I had forgotten to pack the "birthday hat" that's in the photo above from his 2nd birthday. It's a family tradition to wear that hat on your b/day.

On the phone to Aunty Ros & family in Australia just before checking out the local farmers market. Nicholas loved the market because he got a free snow cone after telling the vendors there (and everywhere else) that is was his birthday!

Out to dinner at Claim Jumpers Restaurant. Birthday boy got a free chocolate muffin after telling them it was his birthday. He was so excited!

Nicholas thought his birthday kept going for days and didn't miss a beat when he found out that it was actually just the one day, but it comes around every year. So now his telling people "do you know I'm going to have another birthday soon and I'll be (holds up 5 fingers)!"

The countdown is on!
