4th Birthday Boys

I'm not 4 years old, but I think the boys had a pretty great day...

We started the day with a special breakfast, the most delicious banana pancakes ever! (served with french vanilla yogurt)
Food always makes us happy...then we spent rest of the morning decorating with red balloons and ribbons. I made the kids valentine/birthday crowns (idea from The Creative Family, of course). I'm really happy with how they turned out. And the kids don't even mind wearing them.

Then they helped me make a yummy birthday cake. By 'help' I mean they clean the bowl for me. The Bee likes to be veeery thorough.

Then after lunch the boys headed out with Daddy to see the Monster Trucks. So fun! And yes it was loud, and yes they spent the second half climbing stairs and exploring the 'nose-bleed' seats. But they did get to see the Batman truck and The Monster Mutt. And eat popcorn. Hurray! (more photos to follow)

Then home for a family dinner with a grande finale of cake and ice cream. I made them each a cake this year (ok, I cut one in half) so they'd each feel special and then we all ate as much as we could. Which was a lot!

And then with one Baby in bed and two tired boys falling asleep, Mr. Charming and I went out for the evening!
(Um yes, we had a babysitter)
I really enjoy having my Valentine Boys and it was a treat to get out with my hubby too. Such a fun day!
