Happy Birthday!

It is hard to believe that Jonathan is five. He has grown up so much in the last year. A few things I love about Jonathan: his smile, his infectious laugh, and his great imagination. He asks great questions (Do birds have ears? Why didn't you turn on your blinker when you turned?) and I love finding the answers out with him.

Jonathan had a Star Wars birthday party for his fifth birthday.

Activities included

  • Luke, Luke, Darth Vader (variation of duck, duck, goose)
  • Make your own light saber
  • Jedi training obstacle course
  • Bounty hunter hydro-detonater fight (water balloons)

After Lucas woke him up this morning, Jonathan had an asteroid hunt to find his presents.

The scooter was a hit.

His cake: dark chocolate cake with peanut butter mousse. Consensus: great cake, mousse too rich.

We went camping for the Fourth with the Christensens. Two days of lots of dirt and no baths: a boy's dream come true.
