Happy Birthday Tate!

The Great Tate turned 5 in February!

Here are 5 fun and memorable facts about Tate:

1: He is totally obsessed with Star Wars (which will explain much of the rest of this post)

2. He is a great reader

3. He can be very sweet and supportive as a brother and a son

4. He is for the most part very good natured and easy going

5. If you catch him at the wrong time when he hasn't had enough sleep and is engrossed in an activity and you need him to do something else, even if it is something fun, he can be very stubborn and will lower his eyebrows all the way and stomp all the way to where he has to go and say FINE!

5 funny things Tate says

1. Kisses are unvisable (which means you cannot wipe them off) and he has a net to catch them with. Also that's disgusting whenever Ben and I kiss.

2. They shouldn't cut down trees, what will they do if the dirty air comes?!

3. I want that for my birthday (started the day after his birthday week this year)

4. Mom do you wanna scrimadge?

5. Butcept, you know when he is disagreeing with you.

Wow, that is an incredibly unflattering picture. Oh well, here I am trying to give Tate the Star Wars birthday of his dreams. Thanks to my friend Shawna with her pancake molds so I didn't have to attempt freehand.

Zoe and Yoda...

Tate and Darth...

Plenty for all to eat...

Storm Trooper.

Sweet little mug and his new Star Wars Legos.

The beautiful thing about having a trampoline is that it is like an automatic party. Kids come over, they jump, they eat cake and go home!

Good fun and Good for you!

Love the trampoline hair!

Have to give Ben mad props here because he did not have any molds and these things totally look like what he wanted them to. Tate is not a cake man so we did rice crispy treats instead.

We love this little man so much!

Final Disney Day

Phew! Finally we are at the last day of our exhastingly-fun-filled Disney trip. We spent our final day in the parks running back and forth to all of our favorite attractions. We were all pretty tired but determined to get the most out of our last day.

Hi Zoe on the ferris wheel!

Me and my sweet boys WAY up high. Does Greysen look worried? Ben totally has the bigger muscles right? Water water everywhere but not a drop...
Poor tired man
Who is that behind my Tate?
Tate is about to get decontaminated!
What is Chip hiding in Tate's hood?
Wait...we've seen this princess before...only with a different face!
Is Zoe slightly underdressed?
One of these girls really does have red hair.
That was one heavy bunny!
Keep in mind that we were there in January. Sure it is warmer there but not THAT warm. I wanted to loan her my jacket!
This was actually from the day before, we caught them on the run.

We had such a nice time on this vacation. We were all truly worn out at the end of each day but we had so much fun. The best part was the time we had together and getting to know eachother better.
