Today was a special day for our family, as Lucas turned 4! Hard to believe that 4 years ago at this time I was just meeting him, and now I can't remember life without him. So, we decided to share this special day with you all photographically.... We started out in downtown Concord NH by having lunch at Friendly's and then going to a children's education store where the boys got some new puzzles. After that, they spotted this fountain and wanted to cool off a little. Here is Chris relaxing: And Lucas, not realizing that I'm behind him with the cameara: I got busted!...Happy Birthday little man! Next, we went off to do some shopping, and felt it was time for Lucas to get this: Okay, so it's not really for Lucas, but we've been SUV shopping for a long while and finally found one that we liked AND could afford! We live on the side of a mountain and my current car (an 91 Geo Prizm) just won't fit three kids. So, we are now officially an SUV and minivan family but we love it! Then it was back to Concord to order our wedding bands: Since the boys did a good job of being patient in the jewlery store they got this treat: Bounce! Then the birthday boy had a turn: Leaving after all that fun was hard, so Aubrey gave them superman exits: Then on to the grocery store to pick out what kind of cake he wanted. This car is more their speed So many choices, but he ended up with marble cake with chocolate frosting and an abundance of sprinkles and other novelties for the top. By the time we got home after this very full day both boys were ready for bed. So, tomorrow the festivities will continue by picking up the new car, baking and eating the cake and hitting the pool! Phew....I'm tired now!
