Talon's 4th Birthday Fun

We have had lots of fun for Talon's birthday this year. His actual birthday was the last day of our family trip and we went to the Cincinnati Museum before getting on the road to come home. Since then we went to my mom and dad's house to swim and celebrate. My mom is such a good cook! We had ribs, hot dogs, hamburgers, baked potatoes, and cake.

Today we had Talon's birthday party. He wanted a pizza party at a local restaurant. For his cake he wanted a volcano, a waterfall, trees, and dinosaurs. The cake was fun to make. Talon did all the hard work, putting on the chocolate rocks, trees, and dinosaurs :). His daddy blew up helium balloons for all the kids, too.

Hope you enjoy some pics from the party:

I know, I know. It won't technically be summer for a couple more weeks, but school is out here, and summer activities are in full swing. We went on an awesome family trip with Jason's mom and brother to the Cincinnati area. Lots of fun.

Then it was Talon's 4th birthday and my 40th. So weird. Not feeling 40. My mom got me a huge gift bag full of yarn. I got myself a couple of what they call afghan crochet hooks to try out tunisian crochet (crochet that kind of looks like knitting...going to leave it at that). I have been fun trying to figure out tunisian crochet, but other than that, I have been camp taxi driver :).

Talon's party will be on the 18th and I still have a lot to do for that. I do know that he wants a cake with trees, dinosaurs, a waterfall, and a volcano. I have some good ideas, so we will see how that turns out :)

We have had some relaxing reading time, sprinkler time, and swimming in Grandma & Grandpa's pool time. I just love this pic of my son, Talon. This was him at the Cincinnati Museum of Natural History reading National Geographic magazine on his birthday. I think I like this pic so much because he reminds me of his daddy here. He also got to hold a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach and scratch a chinchilla behind the ears. Eliana absolutely loved the cockroach, too; and Tasha loved the chinchilla. I will have to post more about our trip and pics, etc. later. The Cincinnati Museum where Talon was reading houses 3 museums. It was really cool.
