Ahoy Birthday Boy!

This is by far the most pictures I have EVER included in a blog post, but Sherry Owens took over 200 so it was hard for me to choose :)

Preston's actual birthday isn't until Thursday, the 19th, but we celebrated this weekend with a big Pirate Party at the Trinity Gym. We were very glad so many of our family and friends were able to come and celebrate with us. My 80 +++ grandparents even came up from Alexandria!! I hope you all know how much I love and appreciate all of you--Preston is a lucky little man!

As for the party, I think it was a success. His cake turned out very cute, don't you think, and I hope all of the kiddos had fun. Of course Preston won't remember a thing, but I will never forget the look on his face when we were singing "Happy Birthday" to him. It was like he was thinking, "Are all of these people singing to ME? Is this cake for ME? WOW!"

I did include a picture of the blow up pirate early in the party...and then later on in the party when the children started dragging him around the gym and using him as a bean bag :) Hey, as long as they are having fun, right?

Hope you are having a great week. More later...
