Adam turned 6 on Aug. 29. We took cookies to school (with orange frosting and sprinkles!) and he got to sit in the frog chair and pick out a NEW purple pencil. We had a little celebration for him at home. My sister and her family were in town and so were Scott’s parents, so we had quite a crowd. He chose chocolate cake with chocolate icing (definitely my child) and rainbow ice cream (definitely NOT my child).
Today, we had a friend party to celebrate both Adam and Zach’s birthday. We’ve always had a joint birthday party for them, because they are so close in age and have the same friends…much easier. But according to Adam, this is the last year he’s having his party with Zach. So we had 7 little friends (ages 4-8, all boys and one girl), plus cousins Katie, Jake and Matthew. We had it at the YMCA (lots of room and someone else to clean up the mess!) The boys chose a “Transformers” cake. We spent 30 minutes in the party room, and then it was off to the swimming pool. Most of the Dads stayed, so I didn’t have to get in the water.
