So we did a family party for him at his favorite pizza place in downtown Apex and then walked back home and opened presents here. We also did a little park party with a few of his favorite friends. I think he had a great birthday!! The day before his birthday WK had her MMO so Wade and I went on a little date to get a bagel and then I surprised him with a trip to defy gravity-an indoor trampoline place. We had the best time-he wore me out. He picked out a lemon cake from whole foods and he was so cute-he said I am really sorry if no one likes lemon cake but its my favorite and since its my birthday I really want it. Good thing we all love lemon flavored cake and oh my whole foods has the best cakes!! Not sure why I am just learning this.
Preschool ending was hard for me. I know he is ready for kindergarten but I am not ready. He has been home with me for a long time and we are going to miss him. He however is going to the same school I went to and he is going to be a walker just like I was!! I love that they are growing up on the same street that I did-never in my wildest dreams did I think that would happen.
Here are some pictures of my favorite 5 year old!!
Josh went and got balloons and put them all over the house the night before his birthday!!
Friend party at the park!
This child will still nap when he is really tired-he has napped quite a bit this Summer

This one makes me sad-He had the BEST teachers and we really miss them already

I am sure I am missing a bunch on this guy too but he really is a good kid. We just love this silly, kind, wild and funny boy. We are so proud of you Wade Harrison and I know you are going to do great next year. We love you and can't believe you are 5 years old.
