4 years old!

Happy 4th birthday, Tyson!!

We didn't go too long in the Thames household without a resident 4 year-old... only two days to be exact. Tyson turned 4 today, filling the gap Riley left when she turned 5 on Wednesday. It's a busy time for birthdays around here!

Doesn't he look SO excited! Much better than the fit he was throwing last night because he really wanted his birthday to be that day and not the next... patience in not a strong suit among the Thames children. :) (and yes, I know where they get it from...)

Gotta love a good Red Robin sundae and birthday song!

They sang to Riley too...

And of course Cooper wanted in on the balloon action as well.

There is MUCH more to come on the birthday front around here... tomorrow is a family birthday here at the house with Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Then the big JJ Jump blowout on Sunday with all of their friends. Definitely more pictures to come from both events!

Goodness gracious, look who's 5!!

Our bright, thoughtful, imaginative, loving, and adorable little lady turned 5 years old today...

Can I just say, she looks older to me!
"Five" sounds WAY cooler than "Four", doesn't it? :)

Waiting patiently for her ice cream... she was one tired girl after such an eventful birthday.
New birthday outfit to start her day, a video message from Mommy (who was out of town until mid-day), card and other goodies from her preschool friends, a Riley-only trip to Build-a-Bear with Mommy and Daddy to pick out a new outfit for Princess (her bunny that is celebrating her 2nd birthday today), dinner at Applebee's with her brothers, several phone calls from family, and then ice cream at home. She was actually falling asleep in the car on the way home and we had to force her to stay awake! :)

I hope she made a fantastic wish.

And not to leave out her brothers...

Cooper + a tricycle + the wall =
A pretty decent black eye!

(It was WAY more impressive in person!)

Two days after Cooper collided with the wall while at preschool, Riley was pushing an empty swing outside, looked away, then looked back just in time for the swing to hit her in the face... giving her a nice bruise right on her upper lip. Then, Tyson slipped while running outside a few minutes later and got a big bruise on his right cheek. Their teachers and I were joking that it might be a good idea to avoid the doctors office until their bruises clear up, otherwise we might be there a while! Thank goodness they document everything at the preschool, too! :)

I also have some great pictures from our Family Fort Fest on Sunday morning, but I'll have to post them Thursday when I get home from my trip. I got some cute pictures, remembered to bring the camera with me to upload them, but then accidentally grabbed the wrong cord... oops!
