My little guy has been five for over a week now. It's crazy, I know. I mean, it seems like yesterday that Daddy and I were in the hospital marveling at how tiny his fingers and toes were. It's amazing how fast time goes by...both my babies are growing up way too fast. Some days I feel that life is just speeding by and we really haven't stopped to enjoy things.


Anyway, the fifteenth of this month was Gavin's fifth birthday. It was also his last day of summer preschool (he's a kindergartener now!) and I baked some cupcakes for him to share with his friends at school. Daddy and Bekah joined me at the school to celebrate. After school, we took a trip to Toys R Us and spent about an hour and a half looking at all the cool toys. While it was a good experience, I do think that the kids were just a bit overwhelmed with everything.

Later that evening, we met up with my Dad and his side of the family at Gallos for a graduation party for my brother. We all had a blast, even though it was BLAZING HOT inside the restaurant! The kids seemed to take really well to all the relatives they hadn't met. And I really loved being around my family that I don't get to see very much.

The kids had a surprise later with a cake and gifts that my Dad had bought for them. So they got to blow out candles, hear the birthday song and open presents! Can you say spoiled? :)

After all that excitement, the kids were just plain wore out. Which was good for me and Daddy :) They actually slept in until 8 o'clock the next day!!

Here is Gavin with Papa Rollie...ARGH, he looks like a pirate!

And here is Miss Bekah...
