Bode turns 4!

The day Bode had been looking forward to for what seems like months and months finally arrived! My parents happened to be in town the day before his birthday, so we decided to do a family barbecue and have cake together.

This year Bode wanted a Hot Wheels cake. He really is obsessed with them and I think we have probably have hundreds of them throughout our house. I've decided I really like the decorating the cake part, just not the making and frosting the cake part so much. I enlisted the help of Costco for the first few steps, and then I just got to do the fun part! :)

I thought it turned out really cute!

Bode loved it, so I was happy. 

I loved his big grin when we were singing to him. 

Davis also enjoyed the cake :)

The next morning he was excited to go to school and take treats to his class (Mike & Ikes). He came home wearing a birthday crown and was so excited for his birthday party.

This year we did his party at Lowe's Airsports in Provo. Our boys love that place and I loved not having to plan a party at home!

Sean got in on the fun, too :)

Cupcakes! The kids had fun picking out their favorite.

Everyone seemed to have a blast. I am a big fan of birthday parties that let the kids just run and jump around to their little heart's content.

We sent the kids home with one of these little goodie bags. I found the printable on Pinterest and they worked great!

After the party Bode chose Pizza Pie Cafe for dinner.  Then it was home to play with his new presents before bed. He was pretty excited about all of the cool Hot Wheels stuff he got from both sets of grandparents and this Iron Man suit from his cousins.  He also got some cool new glow-in-the-dark shoes and a big Hot Wheels storage truck from Sean and I, and a bunch of really nice gifts from his friends. 

He had a really great day and I am so glad!
