1, 2, 3...4!!!!

Today my first-born turned 4. It has been an amazing four years with this little guy. I suppose that four years and two sisters later I can't technically call Colby my baby, but he always will be. I am so proud of his smarts, his sweet disposition and his loving nature. He loves music, creating art, cars, movies, traveling, friends, his family and the color red.

We celebrated with Curt's family while we were at the lake and will celebrate with my parents when they come for a visit in a couple of weeks. So today, instead of a party, we spent the day filled with some of his favorites: McDonald's PlayPlace for a long lunch (with a couple of friends), cartoons, playing baseball in the backyard and of course just one more present. For his special birthday dinner he requested mac 'n cheese, hot dogs in a bun, strawberries and Kool-Aid.  When I tucked him into bed tonight I asked him if he had had a good birthday. He said yes and then informed me that he doesn't want to be anything when he grows up because he wouldn't be able to play as much. Glad to see he has his priorities in order! :)

Happy Birthday, Colby!!!
