Somebody had a birthday yesterday! It was such a fun day. We went to the Dinosaur Museum in the morning and had a family party in the evening. I think David felt so special to be the center of attention for a while.
When I said, "Smile big" this is what David did:
David and Grandpa:
The Tyler side of the family keeps up the tradition of singing, "For he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellow, for he's a jolly good fellowwwww. And so say all of us, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray, hip hip hooray!" I think my Grandpa picked it up in New Zealand on his mission. I love it and David was hooray-ing like the best of 'em.
The older kids showed him the ropes with opening presents and organized which present to open next. It was a pretty impressive operation.
David got so many fun presents, and kept bringing them to me and asking, "Mom, do I get to bring this home?" He felt like it was too good to be true.
So much family came to celebrate - we had the Haskell side from my Mom's side of the family and some Terry's, plus a good friend from our ward.
The bubble machine was a big hit:
And I spent a lot of time this week working to get this present finished for David. He loves the book Freight Train, so I designed this especially for him. I finished binding it at 4 pm and his party was at 6:30 pm. Plenty of time to spare. To be honest, this cannot compete with a bunch of new trucks, but eventually I'm sure he'll notice it and like it. :)
And last, a couple flashback pictures.
