Hard to believe it's been 5 years since that little boy of ours was born. He is one joyful kid! Who would have known when we decided on Isaac ("he laughs") that it would be such an accurate name? Just like his momma, he wears his heart on his sleeve, not much containment of emotions (unfortunately sometimes). Even as I went through his birthday pictures I was reminded of me opening presents! Everyone always said how animated I was. Check out this boy's expressions! I just love it!
We started the day with the breakfast of his choice--cereal! Easy on mommy :) We let him open one of our presents before Keith left (a big magnifying glass to look at all those interesting things outside). Then it was off to the "castle playground" on the way other side of town. A favorite of the kids. I mean this thing is HUGE. Look at it!
One of his favorites for dinner (chicken tetrazinni) and strawberry cake with strawberry icing (all from scratch I might add!), at his request, for dessert. So, my boy had a pink cake for his 5th birthday :) He had asked for Frog and Toad to be on the cake but despite my best efforts, the strawberry icing I had put on was too runny and I couldn't get it to work. Thankfully we had a Lightning McQueen candle my mom had sent last year! He may never have forgiven me :)
Thanks for all the birthday wishes, cards and gifts! He was certainly blessed by all of your thoughtfulness!!
