Happy birthday to our son Nolan! We are so happy that he was born. We are blessed that he is a part of our family. It was a joyous day to celebrate with him.
We went to the park.
The kids especially loved climbing this tree.
Oliver with Julia. Right after this picture was taken they went on the slide and Julia bumped her poor head. Ouch.
Andrew high up in the tree.
We brought Nolan's "big" gift to the park so he could ride it.
Nolan's favorite thing about his new tricycle is the little storage bin in the back.
Every time Nolan went down this slide his hair stuck straight up from the static.
The boys were doing flips off the swings. Even John did it-- but I couldn't watch.
This picture is awesome! Rachel and Nolan laying on the slide.
After the park we went for ice-cream.
Oliver made Daddy's hair all nice and sticky with his slobber. :)
William and Sveta enjoying their cookie dough ice-cream.
Paul, Jonny, and Andrew caught in some mischief I'm sure. ;)
Dennis sure enjoyed his ice-cream!
This picture is one of my favorites! What two adorable little boys!
Nolan was looking forward to this part all day! He takes singing happy birthday very seriously.
He took his time blowing out each candle one at a time. He didn't even get mad that a certain brother blew out the last candle. Can you guess who that was? Watch the video at the end to find out.
Opening presents was lots of fun.
Nolan took time to appreciate each gift.
It is so sweet to see how much Nolan likes his birthday presents. As you can see, Dennis does too.
Happy birthday to the cutest, sweetest, funniest, 4 year old!
I just had to include this funny picture. Dennis meant to embrace Nolan and get a picture of the two of them looking at the camera touching cheek to cheek. It didn't turn out that way.
Here is a video of Nolan singing happy birthday. It is so precious. Watch till the end-- one of the kids will totally surprise you-- they did me! Too funny!
