My baby is 4. Just yesterday he was nestled all snuggly in his hospital incubator and then I blinked and we were celebrating his 4th birthday. Ho hum. Ho hum.
Hubby was in town for the celebration in which we had a few family members to join in the festivities. He wanted a "batman" theme this year. Which was really no surprise since about a month ago he told me he wanted to be "Batman" for Halloween this year. A fun time was had by all. No tears were shed by mom (miraculously!) and he got everything that he had on his "wish list."
I made a Batman cake using Katie's Slow Cook Chocolate Cake. I made it last year for Madelyn's birthday, and people, it's good. I used a vanilla frosting recipe from Melissa that she gave me about a year ago. I colored the icing yellow and used black sugar sheets to cut out a batman symbol. I definitely won't be on Cake Boss anytime soon, but it was a fun cake to make.
Here's the "Bat Family"
We sang "Happy Birthday" to Kaiden who looks none-to-thrilled to have all the attention on him!
On Sunday, Kaiden's actual birthday, we took a family trip to Linvilla. LOVE this place!
We fed the sheep...
And the goats...
...And took a hayride through all the orchards.
Then we came home and opened some presents. A Lightening McQueen car was a big hit from Grandma Mary
A spiderman umbrella from Mommy and Daddy
A road rug for all his cars. Also from Mommy and Daddy.
And a Teddy Bear from Mee-ma and P-pa.
And his favorite of all is the bell for his bike he has been asking for!
It was a great birthday. So you can stop growing now Kaiden! Love you oogles.
