I told him not to. But he went and turned 4 anyway. What did he want for his birthday? "Guns, swords, and games."
We had a great day with lots of family. With the help of a super duper friend, we found some air conditioners (after the speech from my husband to let him buy things when he wants to and we wouldn't be in this mess). We cooled our house to a nice 80 degrees. (gulp) However, soon after the party started the clouds came and it did end up raining. Luke had a blast. Such a thankful child. "Thank-you so much mommy for the cake. You bought me candles? Thank-you, thank-you!"
