As soon as he woke up I told him "Happy 5th Birthday" and he looked at me almost like he was in shock and said "Am I really five now?!?!?" His party was at 3:30 in the afternoon and all I heard all day was, "Is it time for my party yet?" I'm thinking next year a party at 8 in the morning will work!
We got Eli a four wheeler for his birthday and decided it would be most practical to have the party at my parent's farm so that he could ride it right away. I mean, how fun would it be to get a four wheeler and then have to wait to ride it?!?!
It turned out to be a pretty nice day and it was great to share it with family. Eli's favorite show right now is Curious George, so those were the invites and cake. We did cake and ice cream first, because we were pretty sure that once he opened his presents that we wouldn't get him off the four wheeler! He was such a good boy though and let all of his friends and cousins that wanted to ride it have a turn.
Happy 5th Birthday Eli!!!!
