Liam's 5th Birthday Party

We celebrated Liam's fifth birthday for an entire week (lucky little boy). First with our extended family, then with our little family of four, and then with two of his friends.

For his family party we invited his grandparents, aunts/uncles and first cousins. Liam has been obsessed with the Trolls movie and Trolls movie soundtrack so it had to be a Trolls themed party!

Most of the trolls on this table were MINE FROM THE 90's!! A big thank you to my mom who saved them in her basement all these years. And now they're 'cool' again!

Sneaking in some snacks...

It was warm enough to play outside for a bit!

Our big FIVE year old!

Of course the kids had cake pops AND cake.

Liam got some cool gifts, including more Magna-Tiles to add to his collection!

The morning after the party. I love that all of the cousins are so close in age :)

On the day of his birthday Matt took off of work and we did fun stuff all day:

Birthday breakfast (Liam's choice) of scrambled eggs, strawberries and fresh blueberry muffins.

He opened his gifts from us: a big set of colored pencils

And a Troll

We spent the morning at Possibility Playground.

The lake was beautiful.

That afternoon we walked to Vollrath Park to fly kites

A boy and his kite.

And ended the day with singing and CAKE!

A few days later Liam had a couple of friends over to celebrate one last time.
Party games and sweets!

Happy 5th birthday Liam. You are the coolest little boy we know, so full of love and energy. You amaze us each day with your stories and creativity. We love you so, so much - Mom-Dad-Chloe

A trip to the pumpkin farm - 2016

Last week we took our annual family trip to the local pumpkin farm. We pet & fed some goats, searched for 'the best pumpkins,' as Liam called them, and enjoyed the fresh autumn air. 

Chloe was obsessed with the goats...

No room for Liam in the wagon this time...
