Jonah celebrated his seventh birthday on Saturday. SEVEN! My little man is growing and changing all the time and I can't believe how hard it is to keep up with him. I think it's a mama-son thing. There's just something about my 'baby' boy getting older. The weather was rainy, so we were stuck indoors all day. It worked out ok though since my parents came for the day to visit and are always a welcome distraction (and help). We had both sets of grandparents over for pizza lunch as was the birthday boy's request. We continued celebrating in the afternoon with Jonah's Godparents and our nephew and his family (you've gathered that we all live in the neighborhood together, right?).
Jonah chose a Cars 2 cake and I had him look on Google images to find one that I could try and recreate without losing my
sanity patience. The racetrack cake didn't turn out too bad. It worked out great to use Jonah's Cars toy cars as part of the cake and he enjoyed picking out which ones to use. When I was decorating the cake I surprised him with his newest addition, the Pope character car from the movie. I scored it at the store a few weeks ago to give to him as part of his birthday gifts, until hubby had the great idea to put it on the cake. Jonah was so excited when he saw it that he couldn't stop smiling!
Jonah shares his birthday with my grandma who turned 90 yesterday. Her family threw her a party today, about an hour drive away. We joined the festivities for part of the afternoon and had the chance to visit with a bunch of my extended family. Well, visit as much as you can while tending to little ones. But hey, it was a free meal with excellent food that I didn't have to cook! That alone made it exciting.
I took the opportunity to take a quick photo of the Birthday Buddies since we never know when it may be the last birthday they get to celebrate together. Aren't they sweet?
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
