More Birthday Pictures

"I'm four!"

Inside the boxes: a frog/puppet/book creature, Gnip Gnop, and a water rocket car. The book is cute and a welcome addition to the frog collection. The Gnip Gnop ball game is obnoxious, but the kids like it. And the Double Shotz car from Hot Wheels was a complete bust. It did not work at all like we expected. I called Hot Wheels and they sent me a voucher... we'll buy a plain old car and it will be way more fun!

The biggest hit was the stuffed bowling toy we got at Chuck E. Cheese.

Aren't those cute pjs?

Can you get any more all American than Chuck E Cheese? It was a fun celebration.



Then we had green ice cream cake back at "home." Long time readers of my blog know how much Benjamin loves green!

I love how you can see the smoke curling around in this picture too.

Ahh, Chuck E. Cheese. Not sure if I miss that place or not. Nothing like it here. We plan on having Glory's birthday (in May) at a water park. But we did the Chuck E. Cheese thing at least once for her. Why wasn't there things like that for us when we were kids? Now we have to go to the quilt store to have fun like that.
Wait - that sounds like I'm complaining.

I love th pj's. And the green cake - yum! I remember when Mark was that age - he loved his indoor bowling set.

What a happy, lucky guy...these are the best years. Please post pictures of him in twelve years learning how to drive. Bet you won't be able to hold the camera still.

What a cutie! It looks like those bowling pins don't stand a chance. And I can tell you're in Texas, because you guys are already wearing shorts.

Hi Deb, It's fun reading about your travels and adventures in a new place. The house really looks like it's going to be wonderful. The birthday boy celebration made me smile remembering many similar parties at Chuckie Cheese. My birthday boy is nearly 22 now so thanks for the lovely memories...that time is gone so fast,Dee

Wow, talk about a trip down memory lane. We did the "Chuck E Cheese" thing for a little while too. I liked absolutely nothing about the place, except that it delighted the kids, so that was all the reason we needed to be there.
I am getting all nostalgic remembering those days of innocent delight. Happy times to treasure. Jen
