5th Birthday!

Can't believe he is 5 already! He got a Nintendo DS which he loves, could barely get him to look up from it for a photo!

We had planned a party at Kidstown which is one of his favourite spots but the weather was dismal, the only time it has rained here pretty much all year and freezing to boot, the coldest day in 30 something years! So a last minute change of plans, we went bowling, he loves that also.

Joel and Jordy, yes we actually got those bowling shoes on him, no socks though eww. They insisted he wear them, the other bowling places we have been to have been more lenient with kids and shoes, no such luck here though. He didn't like them at all but we got through!

Also having a birthday on the 17th is Jordy's cousin Emma, with her brother Phillip's 5th just a few days before.

Jordy had wanted a Transformers cake for ages beforehand and was so happy with the Bumblebee cake Lisa made him (not that he ate it, but loved the look of it!) So with two nephews and a niece with birthdays in the same week, poor Lisa had a busy time the night before the party! She did an amazing job though, huge thank you!

Jordan' Bumblebee is in the middle for those that haven't experienced the joys of Transformers!

While we were getting party stuff we got some new crafty stuff for Jordy to help keep him entertained, particularly important at the moment because he hasn't been going to kinder. He has been sick and his sleeping is also way out of whack again. One of the things we got was beads, good fine motor activity.

This fishy bead was his favourite, he named him Goldie and he's "Keeping him forever"! Don't you love the over the top expression of love for Goldie!

And one last one from yesterday, I got the speedlight (flash) out and had a play. I bounced the flash off the window to the side. This was taken very late afternoon and without the flash there just wan't enough light left. I don't use it often but you can get good results from bouncing flash.
