We started the day off with presents and a special breakfast for the boy (French Toast!). This kid is seriously into police stuff and his most requested item was a REAL police car. Ya know, one that drives and has lights and a siren. Thank goodness for craigslist! I had been looking off and on for months and finally one popped up and we snagged it. Between that, a new police shirt, and an inflatable raft from momma & poppa, the kid was in heaven!
We BBQ'd with friends last night - the adults chatted in the shade while the kids played in the pool. Archer loved his police car cake (not one of my better creations, unfortunately), and we had popsicles. It was the perfect way to celebrate our youngest little guy. More about ARCHER on his actual birthday, but let's just say I'm having a hard time accepting that my baby is going to be 5!
