Kyler turned SIX yesterday. We've actually made it six years with this impassioned little imp of a boy! He is our greatest joy as well as our deepest agony. He's either way UP or way DOWN...there is just no in-between with him. But with a face like his, how could we do anything but love him?
Even Dad got in on the slip and slide action...but where is birthday boy, you ask? While the party was going on outside, Kyler was busy with his new presents inside. (Did you know you have to have a Phd to transform a Transformer? I think I missed that part of parenting school. I really stink at transforming Transformers!!) But after a whole lot of coaxing, begging, (and, okay, threatening,) he joined the party outside once again.
We ate cupcakes.
Lots of cupcakes...
We broke a basketball-shaped pinata, we had water gun battles and a water balloon toss, and, overall, just had a great time. Kyler decided he was happy that he was six and would "never be five again!" Yay six!
The end.

Kim, excellent photos. I love it when the majority of the photo is filled with cute faces like your boys. I was going to say "cute cheeks" ... but ....

The party sounded fun. What a great Dad to take a turn on the slip n' slide. I like the water droplets in the slide pictures.

Your boys are SO very handsome! I really like the slip and slid photos...such fantastic facial expressions! I've enjoyed peeking through your blog this morning.
