The one with the Birthday...

Today is Mater's birthday. My baby is 5 years old.


Budman and I decided to take him out to the driveway to give him his gift first thing. Budman blindfolded Mater, and told him "I put your present somwhere out here. Go find it." Then he spun him around once or twice, took off the blindfold, and sent him to search for it.

Note the location of Mater's present... (Hint: It's the bicycle)

Mater headed out into the yard, while we shouted "You're getting colder, you're getting warmer...

This was great entertainment - for us. (He even looked back at us a time or two!)

After looking all over the yard, he FINALLY saw it:

Budman told me "I want a picture of his face the second he sees it.

How's that??

He couldn't wait to hop on and take a ride!!!

After lunch, he opened a few more presents...

And of course, Monkey HAD to get in on the pictures, too.

A baby at the end of July? Did you die from heat on that pregnancy? Like being pregnant TODAY? WOW it was hot.

Happy birthday to the little guy.

Ha! I love that he began searching the yard, even though his gift was right next to where he started.
