Happy birthday, Dad.

Me: Will, how old do you think Daddy's turning?
Will: I don't know. Maybe 5?

 According to Will, 5 is when all the magic happens. At 5 he is going to get married, drive a car, and drink beer.

Mike had a birthday a few days ago, and with a 3 year old in the house, that means you have a party complete with games, cake, decorations, and balloons.

Amelia is a huge fan of balloons lately.

The day started off a little rainy, but we managed to get outside for a small part of it.

Then it was time to party.

Will chose a pirate theme for Daddy's party.  And what would a pirate party be without a pirate costume?  It's Will's new favorite thing to wear.  In fact, he wears it just about every day.

Will's favorite part - the cake!  Or, really, just the frosting.

Will picked out a few things at the dollar store for Mike: a birthday card that said he was as sweet as cake, a blue plastic cup with a lid, car wash, motor oil, and strawberry sandwich cookies.    photo IMG_3514_zps56f5ff0e.jpg

Happy 5th birthday, Dad!  XO

Will clearly knows his dad's love of cars very well. And I love the Amelia had her own party theme going on
