Fantastic Fifth Birthday

Our weekend was full, but with the good stuff, like...

carving pumpkins with Dad, and...

watching Connor play in his first basketball game of the season, and...

enjoying Caleb's fall break with a trip to the Fort Wayne Children's Museum.

But, the best part was....

celebrating Cooper's 5th Birthday.

He opened presents with breakfast.

Then invited a few school and neighbor friends over for a dinosaur birthday party.

They decorated gift bags and..

played dinosaur balloon stomp, then...

walked like dinosaurs in handmade dinosaur feet, while carrying an egg on a spoon.

Finally, Cooper and friends feasted on dinosaur birthday cake.

Cooper insisted on inviting his babysitter, Trisha. He calls her his "big friend" and seems a bit in awe of her teenage status. She was sweet enough to come!

Cooper was heartbroken that his good neighborhood pal, Annika, was not able to attend his party. So, she (and her family) came over for a celebratory pizza birthday dinner. Cooper was so happy to see her.

We're so blessed to have five years with Cooper. He radiates joy with his contagious smiles. He awes us with his sense of adventure. He's sweet spirit melts our heart. Happy Birthday sweet boy.
