Aidan’s 5th birthday was yesterday. He was pretty excited.

We had been to Toys’R'Us two days previous, where we bought his major gift from us (a new bike, no training wheels) and a Lego set from my parents. So of course, he was up early (“Daddy! Guess what? I woke up 5 today!”) and immediately wanted to build his Lego bucket truck.

By daybreak, Gwen and Quinlan got up, and Aidan opened presents before breakfast.

Later that night, there was AWESOME cake, hand made by Gwen.
