Easton is 4!

Friday was Easton's Birthday. The first thing he tells anyone he comes in contact with is, "It was my birthday and now I am 4."

He has been talking about his birthday for a long time and the one thing he was very particular about was his cake. He told me over and over that he wanted a green and blue dinosaur cake...so I tried...it looks more like some kind of sea monster, but he was happy.

We celebrated at Red Robin with our friends, Steve and Diana and their kiddos, Ruby and Levi. Ruby and Easton, so cute.

Red Robin sang and gave Easton his ice cream...he liked it.
This may look slightly familiar from last years birthday celebration

Then we came back for cake and ice cream.

And opened presents. Yes the booster seat is from us, the parents....don't judge me. There are only so many years where I can convince Easton what is a cool gift...it worked. And I let him pick out the one he wanted, and it just happens to be the one I hate the most. Plus, we are on our way to The Happiest Place on Earth as I write this so that makes up for the booster seat, right?!

Easton makes us laugh everyday (and also makes me crazy everyday). I can't believe he is already 4. He surprises me with how much he knows and learns. He has a ridiculous amount of energy, he doesn't stop til bedtime. But when nighttime comes he sleeps and sleeps well, definitely NOT a morning person. He loves to eat and will try anything that comes his way. One of his favorite things is Shrimp (gag). He is an awesome big brother, but he already loves to tease poor little Ty. He remembers names of everyone he meets. He loves to read. It is the one thing he will do for hours without being crazy.

Happy Birthday Easton!!

Looks like fun...shrimp is yummy Lisa! My boys won'y eat the ice cream at Red Robin, it always ends up being me & Josh that eat it, yet they still want to go there for their birthday dinner every year.

Can you believe you have a 4 year old?! It feels like not to long ago you were doing preschool with that little guy in you belly. Glad he had a great birthday and the cake looks great! Man our kids really test our creative skills when their birthday rolls around! Miss you!
