Today we got to spend the day celebrating Carter turning FOUR!!! I can't believe it...time flies! We are actually having a combined birthday party for both boys next weekend, so today we had some fun spoiling Carter. Since Grandpa Cliff and Grandma Karen are in Florida, and will be for a while, Brian and I assembled their gift to the boys last night and let Carter open it when he got up this morning. They love their new play house. Carter calls it his office. :)
Then we dropped Trey and Jade off at daycare and Carter and I went to Russ' for breakfast. After breakfast it was off to The Peanut Store to pick out some treats! So many decisions! These are the boys birthday shirts for their party but I thought I'd let them wear them today too.
The owner was sweet enough to treat Carter with this sucker that said 'You Rock' and wanted to take our picture together.
After the Peanut Store we stopped to see Grandpa Jim to bring him his birthday treat. A Snickers bar of course! And Carter obviously already was into the candy as you can see from his green mouth. :)
Grandma Mary Ann had big instructions that Carter had to pick out a chocolate bar for her so we stopped to quick say hi to her at her work. Then it was off to daycare to play with his friends. He was spoiled with a cake and lots of presents.
After daycare we met daddy at work at McDonald's for dinner and play time and then came home. Then his BFF Sydney came over so we celebrated some more with cupcakes from Holland Cakery (YUM again!) and sang Happy Birthday.
I would say that's a pretty big day for a 4 year old! We love you Carter James and look forward to many, many more years with you!
