Life with kids is ALWAYS an adventure. And I have 3 who are only 3 years apart. (yes, we're crazy.) This is my place to capture the craziness in all it's glory, because childhood only happens once. (thank goodness!)

Happy Birthday Harrison!

My baby has turned 4, and I'm not sure how I feel about it.

For weeks now I have been telling him that I want him to stay 3 forever. He would always respond with a sad face and say "I WANT to stay 3, mom. But I just can't. I don't know how."

His siblings were VERY intense about what he was opening.

To celebrate we went to lunch at the Rainforest Cafe, which I DO NOT recommend.

The kids had a blast.

But it was OVERPRICED and the food was terrible! I couldn't even force myself to finish mine. The chicken tasted like it came out of a can. Yuck!

Luckily we lucked out with our next activity. We visited the Sea Life Aquarium which cost us 1/4 of what it did to eat, and was 400% more fun.

In my next life I want to come back as a seahorse.

On thing you may not know about Harrison is that he is freakishly good at Angry Birds. Here is something else you may not know, my mom has always helped me do my kids' birthday cakes in the past. (She has been decorating cakes for more years then I've been alive.) And by "help" me I mean I bake the cake, take it to her house and then watch her decorate.

Since we have moved to AZ now I was on my own. Thank goodness for the internet. I thought Angry Birds would be easy enough even for a cake novice like myself. So I Googled it and found these super cute Angry Bird cupcakes. And I thought, I could do that.

So I did.

He LOVED them!

And just like that, without my permission, my baby is really 4 years old. Maybe with any luck He'll stay 4 for at least another year, or so.

Oh, he's so cute! And so are his siblings. :) Happy birthday to your baby. Maybe you will both find being four isn't so bad.

PS I am with you on Rainforest Cafe. It's fun, but it's overpriced and some of the menu items aren't that great.

You took some great pictures. And I can't believe that he's 4 already. You did some great works on those cupcakes! I still have to figure out what angry birds is.
