Parker Turns 5

     June 14th finally came this past week, and Parker turned 5.  He's been asking for weeks when it would be June.  Then June got here and he asked everyday, multiple times a day, when would it be the 14th.  I was so excited to wake him up last Thursday and tell him that that was the day he'd been waiting for.  In our house we usually have our "actual" birthday celebration and then our party day.  For his actual birthday he got to go to lunch and birthday shopping with Nana.  Every grand kid gets to shop with Nana for their birthday, and they all love it!  He got lots of super hero stuff and a pirate ship.  The cousins came to Nana's house for Parker's favorite supper and dessert.  Cheese pizza and donuts.

Yes, thanks Pop for the Hulk hands.

     Today was his party day.  He invited his cousins and some friends from preschool.  A lot of his friends called to say they were going to be on vacation this weekend, but I guess that's how it goes when you have a summer birthday.  We had an Avengers party at Nana's and the kids swam and played for a few hours this morning.  Jeremy and dad filled water balloons and they had a blast with those.  I think Parker got a million water guns as gifts, which are his favorite thing in the world.  He also got lots of superheroes, army men, and "boy stuff" in general.  He had so much fun playing with all the kids, and he spent rest of the day outside trying out every single toy that he got.  It's so hard to believe that my big mama's boy is 5 years old now.  Happy Birthday Parker Luke!

Parker hates birthday cake so we always have a donut "cake". 
 I know, he can't possibly be my child.
