Four years old. Happy Birthday my sweet boy. Four...I just can't take it in. You are such a big boy now. So independent and learning to do things on your own everyday. Yesterday you called me into the bathroom where daddy was giving you a bath just to let me know you can now wash your hair all by yourself. You are finally going to the potty (yeah). All the little milestones that tell me you are growing up a little more everyday... right before my eyes.
Tonight we went to Musashi's (our favorite restaurant) and celebrated with our friends there. Musashi's is a second home for our family. The people who work there are some of our dearest friends and really love Joel. And we love them. Here are a few pics from the birthday celebrations.

Birthday Party

We celebrated Joel's 4th birthday on Saturday with a party at a little indoor play area.
His actual birthday is Wednesday, April 23rd. So we still have some celebrating
to do this week! Here are some photos from the party. I just can't believe my little
boy is not so little and growing up so fast. I'm sad and yet happy and thank God for my sweet little red headed boy.

The Birthday Boy!

Cake time!


Nana and Papa!

Jamey and Amy.

Me and Sandy.


All Joel's friends!

More Soccer

First a cute photo while playing outside.

5Five goals! This was last Saturdays soccer game and Joel was
keeping count of the goals he scored. He was excited.

Joel's best buddy Tanner came to his game. He was
helping Paul coach and cheer Joel on!
