It's (Almost) My Birthday!

Did you know that on Saturday it was June 27th? Many of you may think this is not a big deal, but it was my birthday!

Okay, okay, it wasn't really my birthday, but since my parents and I are taking a long trip, we'll be out of town for my real birthday, and wanted to celebrate with some of our Minneapolis friends.

My friend Elijah brought his parents over a little bit early to play. We had a great time. First, we played by the windows. Daddy and Mister Josh were playing with the grill outside, and we thought it was HILARIOUS!

Next, I made phone calls with the DVD remote control, and Elijah hid under the ottoman.

By the time my phone call wrapped up and Elijah got unstuck from under the ottoman, more people had arrived. I decided to change into my snazzy birthday outfit (NOT to be confused with my birthday suit, Uncle Graham), grabbed a hat and was ready to party!

I was glad that I got to hang out with some of my friends. My Auntie Rachel was there, along with Aunt Haley and my friend Jen from church.

Mommy even found time to read me my favorite alphabet book.

Pretty soon Aunt Haley remembered that we were at a birthday party, and we decided to get

right to the point- CAKE AND PRESENTS!

For my birthday, I got some new clothes, new books to read, a cool puzzle, and a little backpack full of rhythm instruments. As a future percussionist, I practiced hitting things with sticks right away.

I thought it was a pretty great day! I hope I wasn't the only one....

Well now I'm curious... did he end up eating any of the cake or not? :)

Elijah was waiting for the cake and wondering why it didn't magically appear in front of him. Jealous.
