birthday celebration!

Max had his 5th birthday celebration on Sunday, and we had so much fun! First we enjoyed bubbles, soccer, and the new park with all our friends. Then we returned home for dinner and cake.

















I love when my lil' monkey does this...so funny and soooo strong!





















Time for cake...
















...and the birthday song. Everyone even followed along in sign too!















Decorating your own cupcake was a definite hit!


























































Max LOVES balloons...loves, loves, loves balloons!










































Always fun to spend time with our friend Eva and her family!





















Our neighbor, Trevor, always wears this fun yellow hat and Max always notices it. So for Max's birthday, Trevor decided to let Max borrow the hat for the party. How sweet is that?





















And the highlight of the party for cousin Thomas? Snuggling with Miss Canela of course...he is head over heels in love. So cute!

Decorating your own cupcake is such a cute idea! I may just have to steal that sometime. :)

I'm glad that Max had such a fun celebration for this milestone of a birthday. It's hard to believe he's already 5-years-old!! (The photo of him with frosting all over his face is priceless.)

Happy Birthday, Max! Looks like you had quite a fun celebration! Hard to believe you are 5 already. I remember the blog post of the day you came home from the hospital. You have come so far!
