As you can see, we had a busy week, so I have some catching up to do! Well, Joseph turned 5 on Tuesday. He's growing up so quickly and is so stinkin' adorable, we can all hardly stand it! For his birthday, he had a small birthday party at a park close to the school he goes to -- (gotta love these winter birthdays in Arizona!). He only invited 3 other kids plus baby brother. They enjoyed playing at the park and eating McDonald Happy Meals and cupcakes before heading off to afternoon pre-K.
His brothers and sisters also wanted to celebrate with him, so after school, we all went to a new Build-A-Bear at the new San Tan Mall where he "built" a monkey that he named "George". Joseph is crazy about monkeys!!! He also picked out a spider-man outfit for the monkey to wear, so the monkey's new nickname became "spider monkey". The 2 of them are so cute together and have since become quite inseperable.
After the monkey thing, we ate dinner at the mall and just strolled around and let the kids play in the play area. Then it was back home for more cupcakes and presents. What a day!!
