Thanks to everyone who helped to make Aaron's birthday so happy. Because of some other things going on, Aaron's birthday celebration got started a couple of days early, and I still need to make him homemade ice cream-more than a week later.
He did get plenty of celebrating even though it was spread over many days.
|Birthday festivities started a few days early with the opening of the air soccer game.|
|And the opening of ebooks and a movie|
|Alexander made these decorations based off of the book below|
|This is the book that Aaron wanted for the theme of his birthday|
|He also got the rest of the ebooks in that series and a movie from the other grandparents.|
Somehow we didn't get a picture of that though.
Nate took half a day off of work just to play.
|This is a game the kids call invaders, where they try to get the balloons with nerf darts before they fall.|
|Mom also organized a water balloon battle.|
|And they got to use their super-soakers from grandpa|
|They had such fun.|
And a local grandma told me they were all going to get sick (colds) from
the cold water on their heads.
It was in the 80s so I don't think there was actually much danger.
|Alexander really like soaking mom.|
This is the only random picture I got of me though, as I had to put down the camera to
|In the Prince Warriors you are supposed to go through the water with the Aleph|
quickly to get your armor.
|We let him light his own firework candle.|
|I made Aaron bean bags for his birthday|
|And a couple of days after his birthday, Nate helped Aaron|
make a wooden goal for a bean bag game.
|A friend here also gave Aaron this, so Aaron has been building a dragon.|
