He's 5!

My first baby turned 5 on Friday.  Where has the time gone?  I can hardly believe it!  Happy birthday Miles! We love you to the moon and back.  You are our sunshine!

Miles at 5 loves:

  • pizza
  • outdoor projects
  • baking
  • reading books
  • his puppies
  • riding his scooter
  • riding his bike
  • walking Ruby
  • art projects
  • sweets and desserts
  • games
  • to goof around and tell jokes
  • the playground
  • being inquisitive and asking lots of questions about how things work

The morning of his birthday we ate donuts in his bed and sang happy birthday.

He's been asking for a "jeep" ever since he drove a power wheels at my friend, Beth's house, last Christmas. We made his 5 year old dream come true and got him a maroon Cadillac Escalade.  We parked it in the garage and covered it with a tarp for the big reveal.  I think at first he was in shock...
Then he and Hadley quickly jumped in and rode it around the garage since it was raining outside.  He kept saying "this is exactly what I wanted!"  He couldn't stop grinning from ear to ear.

That evening he got to pick where we went out for dinner and he chose pizza at Old Chicago (this place has a lot of happy memories for our family).

All weekend, in rain and sunshine, he and Hadley have been obsessed with driving the "jeep."  They've even cruised as far as Grandma and Grandpa Nickolay's new house and love off-roading through the yard.

Here are just a few more photos of last Monday - my day off with the kids.  We started the morning by making homemade whole wheat waffles. 

 Later in the day we read books...

 ...and made homemade Greek yogurt pops.
