My Little Man

turned 5!! To celebrate, he wanted a pool party. How does a mother of 3 pull that off in April? That's just what I was thinking. Lucky for me, I realized we'd be in St. George with a handful of cousins right before his birthday. He got his pool party and I got to have all the parents there to watch their own kids in the water. McKay loved it. (In fact, I think he was one of the last ones out of the pool.) We spent his actual birthday driving home from St. George, so we didn't do much. A few nights later we did his "family party" with mom and dad and his sisters. Jeff brought pizza home and while we munched we watched Madagascar 2 (gift from Grandma A.) We haven't seen the first one, but Jeff and I got several good laughs in on this one. None of us are huge cake fans, but what's a birthday without cake? I finally tried that chocolate cake in a mug recipe for his bday cake. For a microwavable dessert, it was pretty good. Then the best part: Presents!!! I've got one word for you: Legos. That's what it's all about this year. He got a few sets from cousins at his party and a few more from mom and dad. He's also into sharks lately, so I picked up a little National Geographic kids book about them. (Other gifts: outfit and Playhouse Disney cd-G&G A.; bumblebee transformers-sisters; Lightening McQueen art set-G&G M.) He had a great birthday and I think he secretly enjoyed it being strung out like it was.

Happy Birthday Mckay! I can't believe he is already five! It doesn't seem that long ago when he was a little baby, and I was watching him! Crazy! I'm glad you guys got to have a swim party, and thank goodness the weather was nice down here for it!
