On April 15th my little Max turned 5! I can't even believe it. Man, did we celebrate! We started the day off with cupcakes at school...his teachers and classmates sure made him feel special. After school we came home and got ready for the big family party.  It was so fun to have our cousins, Aunts, Uncles, Grandmas and Grandpas come over to help us celebrate!  After partying all day Friday, we got up Saturday morning and started again.  Max really wanted to have a kid party so we invited his whole class, his cousins and his great friends.  That was too many kids to have at our house so we headed to the Log Gym.  We were exhausted by the time the weekend was over...but we sure had fun. Thanks to everyone who helped make Max feel so special!

This is Max's Wolverine (X-Men) Birthday Cake. It's Wolverine's claw/hand coming out of the cake.  This is what he wanted, so I thought I'd give it a try...I was a little disappointed with how it turned out, but seeing Max's face when he saw it made it completely perfect!

Kaysie testing one of Max's cupcakes! For some reason she didn't want to pick it up, she was eating it directly off the table.

What great friends!!! Notice Kaysie is the backwards one...she was so excited that Max's friends were paying attention to her, she didn't want to stop talking to them!
