Happy 4th Birthday, Colton.

Colton's actual birthday fell on Father's Day this year.  We were fortunate enough to have my dad and Casey's dad here to celebrate both events.  Casey's parents bought Colton a all you can ride wristband for Nickelodeon Universe at Mall of America for one of his presents.  He loves this place, but never gets to stay more than a couple of hours, because someone in the family usually gets tired, grumpy, or both (usually Casey or Chase).  So, this time we took 2 cars and the boys went back home to watch golf while me, Nana, and Gram stayed with Colton to ride as much as he wanted.  He still didn't want to leave when we left at 6 pm!!  We also ate at Bubba Gump's Shrimp Company at MOA.  

Riding the baby rollercoaster as Colton calls it.  If you look behind him, you can see Chase and me.  Chase was not a big fan.

Happy Father's Day to our favorite daddies.

The waiters sang to him and brought him his own ice cream.  He was so surprised.

Colton's 4th Birthday Party

We had Colton's 4th birthday party at the YMCA this year.  We were going to have it at the house and do a pool, but I don't trust Minnesota weather, yet.  It was a good thing, because it rained all day and was about 50 degrees.  The kids also got to swim because they had an indoor pool, but the birthday boy d party idn't have much fun doing swimming.  Colton cut his toe pretty bad on a caution stool in the pool and his festivities for the day were over.  At least he will always have something to remember his 4th birthday - a nice scar.

Colton's First Tball Adventure

Tonight was Colton's first tball practice.  He is playing with at the YMCA this summer and will probably do the youth association next year.  He was so excited to go.  He was more excited afterwards when we told him we were going to stop for ice cream as a treat.  He did pretty good for his first time.  He really wants to hit, but that will be next practice.  Hopefully he will love it just as much as Casey and I do.  

Getting ready to go to our first TBall practice ever.

So excited we had to run.
