The night before his birthday Jacob kept reminding me all night long that we needed to decorate his door for his birthday. I kept telling him that if he helped me do it, it wouldn’t be a surprise, which is what it is supposed to be. But this kid doesn’t forget anything, he remembers that we decorated his door last year and wants to be sure it will happen again this year. After we finally got the boys to sleep, we decorated his door. And he was a happy boy when he woke up.
For breakfast that morning, he requested waffles with a scoop of ice cream ontop.
And this year Jacob decided he wanted to go to Legoland for his birthday. So on his actual birthday we just had a small pizza and cake party with some of his close friends.
We had planned to go to Legoland the following Tuesday, and a few days prior when we were preparing to go, we looked at their website to find out some information and realized that during the “off season” they are closed on Tuesdays. So then we pushed it to a couple days later, and when that day came, it was pouring down rain…so we planed to go the following week and due to some construction commitments and sickness, we had to postpone it again. The following week, we FINALLY made it to Legoland!
He’s so excited to be 5 years old!
We had so much fun riding the rides (Dylan had his first official roller coaster experience on the Coastersaurus!)
All the LEGO creations were pretty amazing too!
And before we left, we had to get one more group picture so the boys could show off their swords.
And here is his yearly picture with his elephant and giraffe.
