A Birthday Party

After going all out for last year's party, we decided to keep it a little more low-key this year. With a new house and a new baby all in the same year, Mom and Dad aren't too up on the party-planning these days :)

Friday, his actual birthday, Chris and I both took the day off. Colin opened his presents from the us within minutes after waking up and then I made pancakes for breakfast. Which Colin thought was a completely crazy idea as I usually only make them for dinner. He's only four, so we have some time to change that!

Then we packed up the car and headed to Fort Wayne. Grammy and Grampy have a boat, which Colin loves and since we hadn't been out with them all summer we thought that it would be a great to take him out on Saturday to celebrate his birthday. Only it turned out to be the coldest weekend of the year! Sorry, bud.

Instead, we relaxed around the house, carved a pumpkin just for him, and prepared the food and goodies for his birthday celebration. He couldn't have been any happier! Simple and sweet.

And of course, no fall birthday would be complete without a bonfire!

Happy FOUR years Little Man!
