Sunday Snapshot - 6th Birthday

The birthday boy

6 years already?  Where has the time gone?  I can't believe that this weekend we celebrated Braeden's 6th birthday.  It seems as it was just yesterday that I was rushing to the hospital after work because Amy's water broke.  4 weeks early!  

Flash forward and here we are.  It was a big birthday here in Drosche Land.  We've always done family birthday parties for the boys.  But we've also always told them that when they are in Kindergarten they could have a party and invite their classmates.  Well, this was our year to follow through.  We booked his party for a place called Wonderwild.  Think about one of those indoor play areas at McDonalds.  Now make it bigger, much bigger.  That's Wonderwild.  A place for the kids to run around, bounce, slide, and have fun being wild.  Braeden enjoyed a friend's birthday party here and Amy and I were hooked once we found about how all-inclusive it was.  This appealed to us since Amy is now 33 weeks pregnant.  We knew we wouldn't have the energy or time to host a party at our house, so this was a dream come true.  

So, that was his party today.  His big day.  It went so well and he had a blast!  I enjoyed sitting back and watching him have his day.  Friday he'd brought cupcakes to school to celebrate and yesterday, his actual birthday, I (Amy sat it out since she's on bed rest) took him to see The Avengers as he's been insisting upon for the past month or so.  3 days, 3 celebrations, 1 very happy 6 year old, 2 very tired parents.  As you can see from the pictures (I think my favorite is above but it's so hard to decide) it was a birthday to remember!  Now, I have one year to get used to having a 6 year old!  I can't even begin to think about 7!

All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.

Beyblades were one of the top requests for this year!

Brotherly birthday love!

Enjoying aforementioned Beyblades!

Hamming it up with his candle!
