Chico and I had a fun morning making his bulldozer cake. Then Grandma Coy gave them a pre-birthday present that they had fun playing with.
I finished the cake hours before the party and wasn't sure it was still going to be standing by the time the party started that night. So I snapped a picture before hand and it did have some serious leaning and one of the tracks tipped over. Someday I'll know more about cake decorating and will secure it the right way and work with level pieces of cake. :) Chico loved it though and I got TONS of compliments on it. I think people were trying to make me feel better since it was SO obviously about ready to fall over at any minute.
Chico's friend brought some balloons over that morning to wish him happy birthday since he couldn't come to the party. They were a hit and I was glad they brought them since I had dropped the ball in that department!
And finally the time arrived for us to go to the park and celebrate with family and friends.
It was a little windy, therefore hard to light but it all worked out. :)
Brent once again amazed us all with his amazing stunts on the playground. How he has the energy to do what he does on there is beyond me. Someone commented that he should have been a stunt man, he really is good! (He's taking a break in the picture below, probably contemplating what thing he should flip off of next).
Chico discovered to his delight the fishing pole and grabbed it out of the pile of gifts before we did the official gift opening. He was so excited about it!
He got a beach towel and beach ball AND a little kiddy pool to play in, in the backyard from Grandmom and Grandpop.
An art kit from Grandpa Hatch which we were excited about. He LOVES painting.
An excavator from Grandpa Hatch, it was a huge hit!
And this giant gun from the Maynes. He is so cute with it.
Other people came too and everyone was so generous with their gifts, unfortunately I can't post pictures of everyone, these are just the best pictures from the night of Chico. Thanks friends and family for coming and supporting our sweet boy on his birthday. We really appreciated it!!
