Mr. Garbage Man Turns Four

 At four, Our little S is growing so fast!  He still is obsessed with garbage trucks.  He said to me the night before his birthday that he would still like garbage trucks when he was four.  But when he was five he wouldn't like them anymore.  But when he is six he will like them again.  So in anticipation of a loss of interest in garbage trucks, I decided to attempt a garbage truck cake just in case I never got the chance again.  It was cute at home, but didn't survive the car ride to the park.  Oh well, he loved it and that's what really counts. 

This is his friend he has been sharing a birthday party with since he turned one.  I think in the near future they may be irritated about it, but for now, it makes sense to celebrate with our good friends the Olivers.  Unfortunately the party coincided with a day of record breaking heat and ended with a toddler getting 2nd/3rd degree burns on her feet after walking on some rubberized cushioning underneath the slides.  So make sure your kids always wear their shoes at the park and put them back on immediately when they exit the bouncy house at birthday parties.

Just a few more pictures of my cute boy.  He's so smart and his daddy's son through and through.  He's pretty particular about the way he likes things to be.  He's super smart and is starting to read and write.  He's left handed!  I can't believe I got one :) I've really been enjoying my time with him lately.  I'm going to miss our afternoons together when he starts preschool in the fall.
