Turning Five!

April is a busy month around here! 
Three, count them 3 birthdays.
We start on April 3rd with my SIL Blake
This year he was able to go to a race at Martinsville Speedway and check that off his bucket list!

Next up is Tiger whose birthday is April 7th!
It starts with his birthday celebration at his school!
At a Montessori school they celebrate by singing a song about going around the sun for 12 months then you are (one, two, three etc).  At each year mark the child speaks about things from that year.  They bring photos and parents can add memories.
It's a very interesting way to celebrate! He walked around 5 times of course!
This is Tiger's last year here as he will be going to public Kindergarten next year.
For his birthday dinner, Tiger choose Cali-N-Tito's
The most child friendly restaurant I've been in! 
Lots of games, bikes that the kids can ride around the tables and open spaces for them to just play play play! 
You refill your water glasses at these stations! 
Tiger's chicken quesadilla almost fell apart!
Then it was present time!
Lots of fun toys and books.
A new bike helmet that he says is his race car helmet and we had trouble getting him to take off! 
What a fun day!
But Wait, there is more! 
Since Tiger and Blake have a birthday just a few days apart they usually do a birthday adventure,
this year it was to Stone Mountain Park
It was a chilly day for a hike but sunny!
Tiger could not understand why anyone would want to carve up that mountain (he told his Dad that...makes me smile)
At the top of Stone Mountain
The Birthday boys!

BUT WAIT...There is more!
Saturday afternoon Tiger had his friends over for a Birthday party!  They played and had a great time!

Pizza and fruit picnic! 
More presents! 
This amazing eagle outfit from IKEA was a hit with Tiger and all the kids! 
And that is how you celebrate turning FIVE!

Next up is Rosemary Scout who will turn one on April 16th!  I'll be sure to share her celebration with you soon! 

Wishing you JOY,

Linda
