Birthday Celebrations

We had two different birthday celebrations for Tate. On Saturday we went to Ammon Park and launched bottle rockets - all of the Bakes except Wes came and brought a bottle launcher so we had two!

Here Tate's decorating his rocket to send into orbit.

Decorating rockets and eating chips.

Oran and Ryan using the bicycle pump, and their big muscles to launch a rocket.

Tate got some "real rockets" like the ones the astronauts fly in.

We wore Oran out!!
I brought him in from the car and laid him on the couch and even all our loud noises didn't wake him.

See his clothes are all wet from the water in the rockets.

On Sunday we invited everyone over for cake, ice cream and visiting. The Bakes came and so did Grandma and Grandpa White. It was very nice.

Iron Man in the making: Ryan was super awesome and painted fondant to look like Iron Man.

Ever since we finished the Spiderman party last year Tate's been insisting on an Iron Man cake - so Ryan made it happen!

Here is the cake all finished
Pretty awesome!

Tate and Matt at the table. Tate got the first piece of cake, of course, 'cause he's the birthday boy!

Oh poor baby with scars on his face - but he's still pretty stinkin' cute!

Tate is being silly. Can you believe he's FIVE!!?

On Tuesday I took birthday treats to Tate's preschool and talked all about his life on Earth and different things he's learned and done since he got here. When I heard how Ms. Kris did birthdays I thought it was kind of weird - but I thought it was actually neat! I brought a picture from each year (birth - 1, 1-2, 2-3, 3-4, and 4-5) and told some things he did each year I liked looking in Tate's scrap book and my journals to find interesting things to say - I like to remember.

And those were the birthday things we did.

Fun! You do good parties and activities - I'm not as talented as you are. :)
