5 Years Old!!!

Wow!  It's hard to believe that we've got a 5 year old already!  Clyde wanted a dinosaur party with an Ankylosaurus cake ("Mommy, not just with a dinosaur on top.  In the SHAPE of a dinosaur!").  So, we did a "Dino Dig".  I got a bunch of dinosaur skeletons and buried 55 of them in the sand.  At first the kids had a hard time finding them but they perservered and everyone got one or two to take home.  We also had a table with dinosaur art stuff and a T-Rex pinata, which was a challenge with so many kids. I gave Clyde the choice of inviting school friends or cousins.  He, of course, chose both. My count put us at about 31 kids and 28 adults! Clyde had a great time and I think his friends did too. With so many people, I planned on only having snacks, but in the end Ben made rolls and I baked a ham so we pretty much served a meal.  We just don't know how to entertain simply I guess. 

Clyde is a kind, gentle, fun loving boy who is a great helper.  We're so happy to have such a nice kid!

The day after his party, Clyde lined up some of his cool dinosaur presents and said, "Mommy take a picture!"  It's a little blurry, but he was so excited about all his presents.
