Wesley’s 4th Birthday Party: Transformers

So, it’s been over a month since the celebration. I figure it way past time to share the photos of the fun from Wesley’s 4th birthday!

The sweet birthday boy!

For some reason, the kiddo wanted a Transformers party. I honestly couldn’t tell you why. We didn’t have a single Transformers toy or cartoon or anything. Regardless, he sorta stuck with the concept, so when he and my mom went to a local party store that was going out of business, they loaded up on some Transformers goodies. Those items, plus some recycled decorations from my cousin’s son’s party a few weeks prior, not to mention some donated toys from my sister-in-law and an outfit from a yard sale, helped us end up with quite a stash of Transformers paraphernalia.

Things were simple. We had only family over and, after a game of Frisbee golf in the back yard, we hit the food and then quickly opened presents.

For the early dinner we ate BBQ, chips, veggies, and Wesley’s favorite: cantaloupe. Things were finished off with chocolate cupcakes and a small cake that Wesley chose, strawberry with cream cheese icing.

I love this excited, real smile from him!

It was a bit humorous to see Wesley open his gift. He just blazed through each and every one of them, which is so odd for one of our kids

to do. Usually they really savor a gift and make a big deal out of it, but he just sorta operated like a tornado. After all the gifts were opened, Thomas and I realized what his strategy was: open all gifts swiftly, assess the loot, and then go back and properly examine and be entertained. Seriously, immediately after he was done, he swooned over his castle toys, he asked to put on some of the pjs he got (you’ll notice a wardrobe change in the photos), and he began coloring with all his art supplies. One by one, he did what we normally would have expected him to do, but he needed to just assess it all first, I suppose. It was quite cute in the end.

All in all, it was a grand day. I always love letting my kids live it big on their birthdays. We tell them “no” to things so often, so the “yes!” of a birthday is just such a great treat.

A little bit of love for Momma!

Thanks to all that came to help us celebrate our Wesley. He’s goofy, loyal, receptive, and persistent. We’re glad to call him ours.

Happy 4th Birthday, Wesley!
