Afterwards we met some friends at Arctic Circle for lunch. They always have a good time, especially when ice cream is involved.

Jumping ( I wish this picture hadn't been blurry, Little man is quite the jumper)
And finally a medals ceremony.

Little man would not pose with Bumble. He would look at him if I was holding him, but when I tried to put him down for a picture he had a fit. Maybe next year... Big man thought he was pretty cool. He had no problem posing for a picture.
I was very proud of little man, he went potty at the ball park twice and stayed dry all night. He's doing awesome at potty training.

His teacher is very patient and has some great ways to teach the kids different techniques.

I have this same picture of Big man two years ago-with the hat and binkey. It's funny how much they look alike at this age. Too bad I didn't get a picture of daddy with the woody hat and bandana on. It would've been perfect to complete my collection of pictures.
Looks like I need some new band-aids. If one is good, then 20 is much better. I'm not even quite sure what the injury to his foot is. I think he stubbed his toe, there's no visible injury. After I listened to him unwrap 5 or more band-aids from my bedroom, I had to go investigate.
What a nut!!!

Little man caught on pretty quickly and went on the potty several times during the day.

We were lucky to get four of the five looking at the same time. Big man got this soccer goal as a present. Little man thinks it's a tent.
Opening his presents. He had a great time. He was even good about sharing with everyone once they were all open.
All in all it was a good un-birthday party. As I reflected on the night I thought of the things I love about a child's birthday. Here they are 1-The chaos and excitement 2-The enthusiasm 3-Seeing joy through a child's eyes 4-Realizing that your child is growing up. Okay maybe the last one is not the best. It makes me realize how fast time goes by and before I know it he'll be all grown up. I just hope I can cherish these moments while they last.
This is Little man trying the rope swing as well. The picture is a blur because I was torn between trying to catch him and taking the picture. He held on tight and made it across the water (probably because he watched brother do it).
The boys were exhausted on the way home. I thought they looked adorable in this picture.
