Blowing Out His Candle

Connor's 4th Birthday Party

After a rocky (very wet!) start, Connor was able to enjoy his party in the woods. We did have quite a few showers, glad we had the tent!

Our set up:

Playing with one of his presents, water guns are always huge hits!

With Joceline

Pinata time

Daddy had a go too (so did I, but I was the one taking pictures...)

Cake time!

Blowing out his candle

Happy boy!

Going on a treasure hunt, following the trail

Seeing the dragon!

Guarding the treasure

Distribution time

I knew these blow up swords would be hits! :)

And Now for the Whole Cake Making Process...

Ready to start: cake, nutella filling, butter cream

Getting ready to make the chocolate decorations

The end result, I have quite a few issues with it (some of them not my fault but the chocolate I used), but, on the whole, I'm decently happy with it, I hope Connor will be too...

Kindergarten Sommerfest

This afternoon was the end of year celebration at the boys school, it was lots of fun! :)

All the children put on a show for us, both Logan and Connor were mosquitoes in the "Mosquito Rock"

Here they are:

This is Alina, Logan's "girlfriend" who was also a mosquito

Final pose

Logan and Connor were both staying on stage alone for some reason, they had to be pushed off! ;)

Getting changed

The school had organised an "adventureland" with lots of different activities for the kids to do

The bag/egg race

The tin shoot

(on this picture, you can see Connor's "girlfriend" Joceline in the background, with the yellow t-shirt)
