Moe is officially 4.
His birthday day was a bit of a wash. Pun intended. We’ve had loads of rain lately and on his birthday we had nearly 9 inches of rainfall in Tampa. We had planned to visit Chuck E Cheese mid-morning and then go out to lunch. Unfortunately, the roads were closed so we just had a calm morning at home. It was a Monday but Ben took the day off so it was really nice to have him around. Thankfully, the family was able to come over and the rain stopped mid-afternoon so we still had a fun party for him.
Christy and Matt were in town and Lucy’s 1st birthday was the day before so we did a combined party. Also, the triplets and Wendy were in town to help us celebrate.
We had favorite foods from our childhoods for his party – hot dogs, mac n cheese, pizza, PB&J, fluffer nutteres, nutty buddies, fruit roll ups, gushers, yohoo, apple juice, chips, and fruit. It was terribly unhealthy but I think everyone got a kick out of it. I think the adults indulged in the junk food more than the kids. They were too busy swimming and playing.
McKay loved his presents – faves were his new accessory kit of magnetic blocks and his bow and arrow. He put his tooth fairy money and Grandma Cliffie’s birthday money towards a quadricopter which will arrive in the mail tomorrow!
After a month and a half without one, it’s nice to have a 4 year old again
