For Chaz's birthday we decided to take the day off work/school and have an entire day just for him, why not? With a new baby on the way I know these days are soon going to be few and far between. So, I made him another (yes, if you are keeping track this is #3) birthday shirt and told him the day was all his!!
We started the day with gifts from Mommy, Daddy and Dane. We didn't go overboard as he already has a TON of toys. There is simply no need. We got him some Transformers (I found them buy 1 get 1 free. GO ME!) some notebooks, paints and such and an Oso submarine he has be eyeing for months (again, I got this on MAJOR sale.. GO ME!!)
While we were waiting on the cousins to arrive we traveled through the maze of games and this is the one he migrated toward. For real? The toilet game?
What is he doing? Well, mommy got smart and decided to explain a little bit of the game to him. Such as when the yellow highlights your name, it is your turn. He finally calmed down and would run back and look up to the scoreboard to see when his name was "yellow"
What a wonderful day just to celebrate Chaz. I know he enjoyed himself and we had a great time hanging out with our little man. Thanks to everyone who joined us for some or all of the day! What a great time!!
We decided to send Chaz to school the next day so he could celebrate his birthday with his friends. My sweet, Martha Stewart, husband decided to make chocolate pops for all the kiddos. We took Chaz to Hobby Lobby to pic out the shapes and colors. Thanks to my Mother-in-law for doing this when Ryan was little, now he loves to do it for his kiddo. Stars, sports balls, dogs and cats--nothing better.
Uncle Shane was there to help with the cake and read the boy his birthday cards.
Our sweet Meme found this awesome vintage looking gas station tank. You see, anytime Chaz rides anything he always has to "stop for gas." I am not sure if this is because his father constantly runs out of gas or what but it is so bad that my dad has nailed and old hose on one of his trees out front -- you know, like a gas station. Anyways, this thing is super cool and even has storage inside. I just haven't figured out a good place to put it. No place seems to do it justice. I love it!!
