4th birthday recap

Hayden woke up on his birthday ready to eat a piece of cake!

I made a milk chocolate cake with cream cheese icing.
Hayden requested cake instead of cupcakes.  He asked for chocolate cake and white icing.

He couldn't wait for us to sing happy birthday to him.  He was awesome at blowing out his candles.

Then he just had to lick the icing from each candle!

Mmmmm!  The cake was good.  I am terrible at baking, but I am trying to get better.  I got so frustrated trying to ice the cake Tuesday night, but I finally managed to make it look presentable.  Hayden LOVED it and that is all that matters!

After cake he opened his presents.  Of course he got a monster truck.  It is the loudest creature ever.  It is called Monster Mutt.  He played with his new stuff and then we headed to lunch at Posada's Mexican restaurant.

I love my boys!

Hayden and Layla enjoyed the queso.  Layla had about 5 tortillas and Hayden ate ALL the steak fajita meat off the nachos they shared.

Bahhhh!  This picture is so funny.  He is chowing down a burrito he built himself.


After some rest time and a movie the birthday boy was begging to go to the pool.

The pool is so much fun now that Layla is a more confident swimmer.  Hayden has followed her lead.  He swims like a little fish with his arm floaties.  He loves them and we are enjoying seeing the kids have so much fun in the water.  Hayden and Layla both have fun jumping off their daddy into the water.

Layla's feet in the one picture above are of her perfecting her underwater handstand.  I loved doing hand stands and flips underwater when I was young.  Layla loves trying!

Hayden had the best day.  In this picture he is screaming "4 years old!!"

Tonight after our 4 year old was asleep his 7 year old big sister lost her 6th tooth!  She ran into the living room holding a tooth in her hand.  We were shocked and excited for her.  It was a fun way to end such a great day with our family.

Happy birthday to my little dude!!
