Kaiden's Birthday was last Tuesday on Jan 15. I can't believe my little guy is 3 years old! We had a lot of fun on Tuesday; my visiting teacher, Suzanne, has a niece with a horse at a local stable. So she took us along with her boy Jay and Tara and Peyton, and let the boys go horseback riding. The boys absolutely loved it. Kaiden and Peyton are best buds and only 2 days apart in age. They had so much fun feeding all the horses in the stable and then they were able to ride Snowball. Suzanne was so nice to guide Snowball around the arena over and over. Kaiden and Peyton tried riding together at first but Peyton got a little nervous so Kaiden took over. He loved it and even let Snowball do a brisk walk. It was great time and Kaiden took such a good nap later! Once Joe came home we headed over to Chuck-E-Cheese for pizza and games. Both kids really enjoyed themselves and I always love a game or two of skee ball. And then to make a long day even longer we headed over to my parents for a bonfire. My dad had built a huge one for their youth activity and Kaiden loved running around some more! All in all it was a great day and Kaiden had a blast.
Well this Saturday was Kaiden's actual Birthday Party. I had planned on having it at my mom's house and letting all the kids run and play outside. I bought these big bubbles for each kid and lots of balls for them to kick around. But with our luck the weather finally decides to turn cold. It was freezing and then it rained all Friday night and most of Saturday morning. My parents had the idea of having the party at the church. It's only 5 minutes away and there's lots of room for all the kids to run and play. What a great idea! I called to check if it was available and we were in luck. Kaiden had the best time running up and down the gym kicking balls and chasing his Uncle Aaron. I wish I would of got video of my brother playing with all the kiddies. it was the funniest thing. He's running down the court with line of kids all chasing after him. Or it was him chasing after all the kids while throwing balls in their faces! Kaiden was so excited for his cake and as you can tell he thoroughly enjoyed it. Since Christmas he's been wanting to open more presents and boy did he get his chance! He loved every minute of it. And unlike Christmas he didn't stop to play with the toys he was ready for another present to unwrap! He got a lot of great gifts and has enjoyed playing with ALL of them. Thanks to everyone who came we had a lot of fun!
