Michael Turns 6!

And just like that, we have a 6 year old!! 
Time goes so fast! What I wouldn't give to have just one more day with Michael as a baby! But, it doesn't work that way, so we just enjoy this fun age! 

This year for his birthday, Michael opted out of a birthday party in order to get a BIG present instead. So that's what we did! And boy did he get a big present!! 


But let me back up a little and share how Michael spent his birthday weekend.

His birthday was on a Sunday this year, so we celebrated on Saturday and Sunday since he was a little bummed about spending a big chunk of his day at church. 

Saturday morning we had to work, but not before going to grab a birthday donut! 

Then after working for just a couple of hours, we all got ready and headed to the water park! 

I didn't get many pictures, since we were in the water most of the time. 

We all had a great time! 

When we got home, it was time for Michael to open his BIG present! 
We have had the big box sitting in our car port for a week, and it's been killing Michael to not know 100% what was in it. He was pretty sure it was a go cart, but every time he asked, we would tell him it was something different. We would say anything from diapers to books, to crayons, to a new refrigerator! 

So when we got home, we asked if he wanted to finally see what was in the big box! He was so excited when he opened it! We took it straight out of the box and he took off in it!! 

The only downside to the go cart, is that it needs to charge for 12 hours after rising it. And the charge lasts about an hour. So for a very excited 6 year old, waiting till the next day to ride it again, is very hard. 

So Sunday morning, he was up bright and early ready to go for another ride! 

After riding around the yard for an hour, it was time to go to get birthday breakfast! Michaels choice? Waffle House! This was our 4th year in a row eating at Waffle House for his birthday! What can I say, the boy loves a good waffle and bacon!

After breakfast we headed to church. Michael was a little bit bummed about having to go to church on his birthday, so we brought cupcakes for him to share in his class. 

After church we went to the in-laws for lunch and more cupcakes! 

Then it was time to open more presents! 

He loved the marshmallow gun from aunt Abby and uncle Lonnie! (And J liked picking up all of the marshmallows). 

When we got home from Greenville, he had one more present to open from J. 
A new remote control car!! 

After playing with his new car, we headed over to Grandma and papa's house for more cupcakes and presents! 

But first a quick boat ride on papa's pond!

Blowing out more candles!!

He got some new Legos and Ninjago stuff from grandma and papa! 

He had a great birthday weekend, and will be enjoying that BIG Present for many years! 

We love you so much Michael, and are so proud of you!!
