Jacks is 5!

We started out his birthday celebration with breakfast at McDonalds and they played on the slides for a while. The boys had slept in until 10 that day so we had to hurry and get down there before they ended their breakfast. We made it just in time and we were there before the lunch crowd so it happened to be the perfect time to go because the playland wasn't busy at all.

My family all came over for cake and ice cream and presents later in the day. Jacks had requested a dinosaur cake so I found one online that i thought was cute and that Erin and I could create! He wanted it to be blue and green. It turned out super cute!

After cake and ice cream we headed out for a burger (I know that was backwards but it was the only way to work it out).

After dinner we went to see Toy Story 3. That had been the plan since we first saw the previews for it at Christmastime and saw that it was coming out on his birthday. He loves Toy Story and he loved the movie. They really did a good job with it and I have even heard some people say it was the best of all of them.

I can't believe he's 5. He's going to Kindergarten in the fall and will be going to my mom's class. I don't know who is more excited, Jacks or my mom!!! Jacks is very sweet and a huge helper. He's very sensitive to other peoples feelings and will never choose his favorite of anything (probably because he doesn't want to hurt anyone or anythings feelings). He loves to play sports with his daddy and is very good at all of them. He is very social and always wants to be at someone else's house instead of his own!! Happy Birthday Jackal!!!

Preschool Graduation

I know I'm about a month late on this post...that's the story of my life lately!

Jacks graduated from Preschool on May 24th. He had a panic attack when we got there and wouldn't participate at all. Bert finally got him to go sit up in his chair as long as he was sitting next to him.

And finally by the end he warmed up enough to go up and get his diploma from his teacher. She asked all the kids what they wanted to do when they grew up and Jacks told her he wanted to be a race car driver. News to me! I'll have to talk him out of that one for sure ;)!

He got a cold sore on his lip 2 days later and I'm convinced it's from his panic attack and stress during the graduation!
