we had fun at your school party, then came home to play with your new toys and when i asked you where you wanted to eat for dinner, the answer was...chik-fil-a. shocker! so, to chik-fil-a we went. we ended our date with frozen yogurt and went home for the nightly routine.
we shared mommy's bed the whole time that daddy was gone. i love that you are a snuggler. sometimes, in the middle of the night, you'll call out "mommy, snuggle me!" to which i am always happy to oblige.

daddy came home from his trip and we had a fun weekend planned. we drove to new braunfels and checked into a hotel for an early morning of fun at the natural bridge wildlife safari. i don't have many pictures from this , as i was too busy feeding the animals. ha! so fun!
the next weekend we had a little party planned at a "jumpy" place (your request). i was a little iffy on this as i am not a huge fan, but i figured it's what you wanted so, why not? well, it was a complete hit with you and your friends! and i could not have been more proud of you. you ran off to play with kane before your guests started arriving, but each time a friend showed up, i went to find you and you would then run to greet them and invite them to come play with you. such a little host. i have a few photos but mostly you were just a blur. running, laughing, jumping, and playing. as you should have been. we all enjoyed your scooby doo cake and then we packed it up to go home eat dinner and visit with our friends, the Tabbs.

We ended the weekend on Sunday, at the Austin Kite Festival. One of my favorite festivals here, it's always the first Sunday in March. And the weather is almost always beautiful. This year did not disappoint.
Hundreds of kites decorated the sky (and the trees) in Zilker Park. It's just a super fun family affair. And we were glad to share it with the Tabbs. All in all, it was a fantastic couple of weeks of birthday celebration. And still almost 2 months later, you joke and pretend it's your birthday. You may be ready for another, but I'm not sure that I am. I'm going to enjoy soaking up the 4 year old you for now.
