Jack’s 5th Birthday

It was kind of a low key day.  Jack doesn’t quite “get” the concept of a birthday and we didn’t have a big party (maybe this weekend).  He did go to school where they sang him the “Happy Birthday” song.  Then we got lunch out with our 2 favorite playmates, Braska and Kinlee at a playplace.  Seemed like a good idea but Jack pooped, Braska went up and didn’t want to come down, Dasha couldn’t go up except for trying to climb up the slide, and Kiki was a generally unhappy camper most of the time.  Okay now it sounds kinda funny but at the time RK and I could not get out of there fast enough :(.

We went home and both littles went down for a nap which Jack never ended up taking which is a bummer because he was cranky all evening when we tried to go to dinner with Grandma Judy.  We didn’t even get to sample the yummy cupcakes our awesome neighbor Linda made.  Or open any presents.

Oh well.  This just prolonges the birthday celebrations!  We got a few cute pics though -


The traditional Jack and Braska birthday photo (clearly neither kid was thrilled).


My view at dinner most of the time :(


Thank goodness he cheered up a little after we got home and pj’d and ready for bed!!

I can’t even believe how much I love this little boy.  I also can’t believe it’s been FIVE years since his birth!  I can remember nearly every minute of that day like yesterday.

Happy birthday!!!!
jack we love you, and hope to see you again soon!

Julie, I do admit it was kind of funny. However, I have been there, and it is no fun! For a long time I avoided going to many places because, well, I did not want to have to deal with that!

Still, Jack's grumpy face is cute!

Awwww, so glad he gave you a sweet photo at the end. :-) Happy big 5!!! Such a handsome boy! John Michael made the perfect "grumpy Jack" face at the restaurant a couple weeks ago. When he's tired, watch out!
