Aidan turns five!

I still can't believe that my baby boy is five. His birthday was May 16th but I am just now getting around to this post. I love birthday's and have so much fun with my kids on theirs. I think Aidan had a great day. I started a new tradition this year with Aidan. I made him breakfast in bed, and it was a hit. He felt pretty cool eating breakfast in our bed while the rest of us ate down stairs.

THen he got to open presents from us. He got a book for his Tag reader, some clothes, and the wolverine claws he has been asking for.

These are the Wolverine gloves that he had been asking for, for weeks. They are bigger than I thought they would be, but he LOVES them. He plays with them every single day.

Later that day it was time for his birthday party. We had an animal themed party and it was a blast. We had a presentor from "Wild Things Science" come and bring a bunch of animals for them to meet and pet. They brought 9 animals and they were all a huge hit.
These are the spider cupcakes that I made for the party. They were a lot more time consuming then I had anticipated but worth it.

The kids sitting in a circle to meet the animals. They were all so good and stayed entertained the whole time.

Here is one of the snakes they brought. I believe it's name is Digger.

This is the biggest snake she brought. They thought this one was really cool!

This is the iguana, Don Juan. He was a lot bigger than I thought he would be.

Aidan and his "girlfriend" Eri.

This hedgehog was probably my favorite. He was so cute. She put him on the floor while she did the rest of her presentation and after a little while he came out of his ball and walked around. He has the cutest little face.

Petting the hedgehog. Kind of like petting a pin cushion. lol

Aidan got to feed the chinchila some raisens. I had never seen one of these. They have the softest fur I have ever felt though. Super cute.

She let them wear a "snake bracelet."

Aidan and his buddies eating cake and icecream. There was twenty kids there and it was actually really easy. They were all so good and had such a good time with the animals. I think overall Aidan had a great day!
Happy Birthday buddy! I don't know what we would do without you. You are the most loving, funniest, and happiest boy in the world. I love you more than you will ever know.

My Baylee Boo

So last weekend we threw a bridal shower for my cousin Lindsey. It was so much fun, but I forgot my camera. Luckily my fabulous cousin Emily brought hers. The next day I got an e-mail from her with some pictures she had taken of Baylee. I didn't even realize she had her outside taking pictures but I am so glad she did. I thought they turned out adorable. Especially just for a spur of the moment thing. I just had to post them because I thought they were so cute. Thanks Em! You're the best!

Okay seriously..........why is this so cute? I thought this was hilarious!

This is Emily's son Aidan on the left, my Baylee in the middle, and my cousin Aaron's daughter Sydnee. I think it's so funny! From left to right they start out super happy, slighly concerned, and then just plain old ticked. lol Cute little things!
Thanks again Em!!!!!!
