My Troy Boy turned 5 at the beginning of August. Look how cute he is!
a friend party for Jake when he turned 5...hm.
Troy decided he wanted to go to the park for his birthday. We drove to a really popular park, and it was super crowded. We saw two busloads of kids arriving there as well, so we opted for a quieter area of the park.
Then we commenced to bake in the sun. It was so HOT!
Then two of my kids magically had to use the bathroom. We found those, then I promised Popsicles at home. The kids were in the car in two seconds flat. We went home and ate Popsicles galore.
That night we went to Chili's. Troy originally picked McDonald's, but blech. So we convinced him to eat somewhere else instead.
Here's Ivy and Pete doing Spiderman poses:
Troy: I love flying on a plane! Me: Um, have you ever flown on a plane? Troy: Yeah, I did in my dream.
Troy: When I grow up, I want a house that's a green rocket ship, and 26 kids.
Troy: (while eating, but not wanting to eat what I made for him) My sandwich doesn't want to be picked up.
He loves his Batman stuff, but also loves his stuffed animals. He has a little turtle his grandma made for him. It has a purple shell and light green limbs. He named it Sea Mist. No idea how he came up with that one. Troy is a great brother. He does a shy little smile that reminds me a lot of mine when I was his age-he tucks his lower lip under his upper teeth. It's just so cute.
I love my little guy.
