Ryan the Birthday Boy
I can't believe he is 4!! Yes that is right on June 5, a birthday he also shares with his Dee Dee my mom, our little Ryan turned 4. He was so excited and a boy after my own heart he really celebrated his birthday all week.
He took treats to his pre-school and celebrated there. He had a special birthday dinner I think maybe three times. He got to go see Shrek the Final Chapter with Kyle and their friends Carly and Carter. He had a sleep over with Carly and Carter. Then he had the "official" birthday.
I have a tradition of making the kids birthday cakes and always give them a chance to decide what kind of cake they want. This birthday Ryan first said he wanted a surprise birthday. So I was like okay we can have a surprise birthday, but what kind of cake. He responded with "you know mom a surprise kind". Well I pushed on and finally got him to commit to a Shrek cake.
We still decided to do a surprise party. Well a surprise party for a 4 year old, which meant have the party guest hurry in the backyard while Ryan was distracted. Anyways he was at first upset because he did not want a surprise party but a Shrek party. But then he saw his cake and he was happy.
He was so excited to get all the fun toys. He got a number of Battle Force Five cars and so loves them all. He also got a baseball hitting machine and a electronic drum set. No worries before we gave him the drumb set we tested it and made sure it was not too loud.
Over all it was a great birthday celebration and now it is time to get the Birthday boy back in line.
