Jack's 5th Birthday

Jack is F I V E!!!!!
How I love this boy of mine! Jack is the one I NEVER worry about leaving at a friend's house. He's the one who makes friends and can get along with anyone.  He is the master question asker and loves to learn.  Jack is our comic relief and makes us laugh daily.  He is loving and gentle and a straight up sweetheart, always has been.  My favorite thing he does right now is EVERY single day after we've done an activity he'll tell me with all the genuine happiness a kid can muster " THAT was REALLY fun going to the pool today" or "THAT was really fun having a friend over." Every day with anything we do....that sums up this loving boy of mine and I absolutely cannot imagine our family without him.  We kicked off his birthday early last night with a free Grimaldi's pizza birthday coupon...and sure enough last night "THAT was REALLY fun eating pizza for my birthday at the restaurant." He's our grateful, loving, easy going, handsome, smart, and big hearted boy.  What a great oldest brother in our family.  We love you oh so much Jack Eugene. 

Jack requested a POKEMON Bday party and I kept it totally simple, but I planned a couple games and oh my word-these boys {and Sass} were in HEAVEN. 
They did a Pokemon craft and {drum roll} a Pokemon Trainer Challenge Course I quickly made up in the backyard that ended with a Pokemon Punch on the poster I threw together ghetto-ly {yup ghetto-ly}. Seriously, they had me time them again and again. I played the Pokemon theme song and they had to hurry and do everything I told them {run around the playlet 3 x}, pogo stick, etc. and then punch the board when they were done. 
Pure happiness.

And the Pokemon Trainer of the day...... JACK for the win!

And cake-- that's the extent of my cake decorating--ha ha--a box and red and white icing. I'm an overachiever folks. Seriously, for me-that is being an overachiever. ;)
He's so dang handsome, this boy.

HOW we love our sweet Jacky boy.
