Hunter is getting all set to blow out his birthday candles! There are five of them.....he will be 5 on Monday the 21st. He and his sister Harley (nickname ~ Boo) came and spent the entire weekend with their daddy and us.
Today started out with a breakfast of waffles. Then Boo, Hunter and I made his birthday cake. After the cake was out of the oven, we all headed to the park to fly kites. It was a great day for this activity with just enough wind to keep them up.....Boo's was way up. She let go of it and off it went. It was a "Dora the Explorer" kite and Dora was off exploring! We watched it until it was no longer visible to the naked eye.
Hunter's kite was a "Spongebob/Patrick" kite. He asked me to take a picture of it so he could see what it looked like when he wasn't "working so hard to hang on to it!"
After kite flying, we returned home to lunch, singing "Happy Birthday", opening presents and playing with old and new toys. The old Fisher-Price toys in the background are the ones I saved from when my kids were little.
This is a remote controlled vehicle that he had been wanting! It says it can ride on grass, dirt, and even through water and it will float! After playing with it for several hours we now know that it is a 'battery eater'!
And these are the new fishing poles that both of them got. Normally, the other kids don't get presents on each others birthday; this year it is a little different since we are all taking them fishing tomorrow. They should be rested up by then after sitting by the bonfire tonight and falling asleep as soon as their little heads hit their pillows. Hunter helped to gather some wood and managed to roast a couple "arshmallows" (his word) too!
