Happy 5th Birthday, Nolan!

I have a 5-year-old. Gah! Where does the time go? Today was Nolan Day. We had an absolute blast all day.

Started things out right with breakfast in bed. French toast, banana and a smoothie. I had filled up his bed with balloons just before he woke up.

We got to Como just as they were opening the gates.

Playing with Avrie in the park area of Como Town. I'm considering a season pass. I really think we'd get our money's worth.

Oh, and then there is this cutie! He was a champ...rode in the stroller without a single fuss. His favorite part of the day? The train ride. He screeched with laughter the whole time. And it's a really lame ride.

The Frog Hopper. 4 times in a row.

Driving school. Word must have gotten out that Nolan was behind the wheel...he was the only kid on the course.

Sticks of joy. Not so joyous for the pocketbook.

CPK for free birthday lunch.

Went to see UP. Super cute movie. We only had to leave once for a bathroom break. Cole slept the entire time. I'm sure Nolan will dream of balloons carrying away our house tonight.

I can't believe he's 5.
