Parker's 4th Birthday

So I am waaaay behind on blog posts!!

Just now getting around to posting pics from Parker's Birthday parties!

We decided to have two seperate parties this year given the fact that we don't have a ton of space for entertaining. The first party was on Parker's actual birthday. We just had family over for a cook-out & had cake & ice cream. Parker actually started running 102 fever the afternoon before the party, so that is why he looks a little less than enthused in the pic below...

 You can tell just by looking at his eyes that he didn't feel good...

But, he did perk up a bit when he found this in the backyard!
 We decided to get him a bicycle this year! He had been eyeing this Spiderman bike at Walmart for a while now. His Great Grandma Doris got him the matching Spiderman helmet & bell for his new ride...

He had it figured it out in no time!

I actually had a video of him riding it, but for whatever reason I can't get it to upload to this here blog...frustrating!!

Ahem...Moving on...
On the Saturday after his actual birthday, we had a party with all of his friends from church...
I decided to do cupcakes for this party instead of getting another big cake...



I found some Spiderman confetti at Party City and made some cute little cupcake toppers with toothpicks...


I also used the confetti to make little tags for the goody bags...

My once calm & inviting breakfast nook was all Spidied out for this event...





We borrowed a family member's inflatable waterslide for the kids to play on to keep cool...



And just for fun, I also found some Spiderman tatoos at Party City for the boys' goody bags! I thought it would make for a cute pic...


I was trying to get them all to flex their muscles & give me their best "tough guy" face, but they were too busy laughing...



Here's a close-up of Parker's tatoo...

Parker Rose, Brandon, & Parker Diehl all flexing their Spidey muscles...


Love this one....too cute!
All in all I would say his 4th Birthday was a success!

Still can't believe he's 4!!
