Taipan is Four

We celebrated Taipan's fourth birthday today. This is the first year that he's really started to be into birthdays, and he seemed to really enjoy his day.

When he woke up this morning I told him that today was his birthday and he's four now. He thanked me for wishing him a happy birthday, and then asked me on which day he would be an adult.

I took the day off of work and we went to Amazone to celebrate with some of our friends. There were lots of kids whose company Taipan and Taisim enjoy, and they had a lot of fun in the playground area and in the arcade.

I had planned to make chocolate cupcakes for his birthday, but Taipan requested a big cake that we could write on, he wanted Starburst candy on it, and also wanted it to be a vanilla cake like his friend had for her birthday (which also happens to be today, and we went to her party over the weekend). So we made a white sheet cake, with whipped cream frosting, Starburst, and writing.

He also received some great gifts - we got him a Lego train, my mom sent a belt that he loves, and my dad sent a wooden paint-it-yourself train, which we started working on immediately, and he got a Jumbo bear from my in-laws.... and those are only a few of the gifts he received.

Thank you to everybody who helped make today so special and memorable for Taipan. We love you all!!
