We started the day with a donut, candle and singing. I'm a big believer in putting a candle in anything… multiple times per birthday… for the birthday kid. A donut is fun, but a donut with a happy birthday candle? WAY BETTER.
Then he got to open his birthday presents… including "Tailspin". It was a big hit.
Then, we set off for the Arboretum! Egan ran and ran and ran and ran some more. Blake chased him.
Sloane and I hung out and played in the grass.
Egan continued to run...
Until he finally got caught.
And then he ran some more.
We convinced the kids to take a seat for just a moment. Trust me, though… it was truly JUST a moment.
Next, we explored a few pathways.
It was really fun walking through the paths lined by blooming trees and flowers. So beautiful!
We even spied some wildlife!
We did a little more exploring before finding a fun place for a picnic.
We didn't bring a change of clothes on this trip, so Egan couldn't play in the water, but he did climb up on the frog.
Then he did exactly what I thought he would do… Stinker!
Our big 4 year old!
Such a fun day spent with my 3 favorites!
