Kale is 5

It just seems like Kale was my little boy crawling around the house chasing the dog and now he is our little man! Kale has grown up before our eyes and never stops amazing us with his humor, love for others, imagination and smarts!
This year Kale got to have two birthday parties.  Since he has been able to ask we have always told him that he would be able to invite friends to his birthday when he turned 5! At the time we were saying it seemed so far away! He never forgot so we let him have one party for family and one party for friends this year. 

At his family party this year we missed his Uncle Josh, Aunt Nicole and cousins Evan and Paige but the timing just didn't work out.  Kale had lots of fun with his cousins, Marisa and Malea as well as their parents and both sets of his Grandparents. 

Kale loves to smile for the camera no matter what is going on....Maks on the other hand has to be in the "right" mood.

Here is Kale's Batman Cake he picked out and the Lego candles his brother picked out for him. 
Kale and Marisa.  These two are 8 weeks apart. Marisa will have her 5th Birthday in January. 

Kale trying on his new "California" coat for the first time.  On my most recent trip to Long Beach, California I found this at the Laguna Beach Surf Shop. I couldn't pass it up!
 Kale showing off his 3 new Wii games from his brother and dad!  He loves playing them.

For Kale's second party we decided to have it at the KS Cosmosphere.  It turned out to be a great time but taught Erin and I a few things. 1. We never want 7 kids. 2. Two hours IS long enough for a kids birthday party. 3. Blue frosting is overrated. 4. Make sure kids are not scared of loud noises prior to taking them to a Dr. Goddards Lab show!

I took this before the kids went into the Dr. Goddards Lab show. It's almost impossible to get 7 kids under the age of 5 to all look at the camera at the same time! Kale is the oldest kid in this picture. They were really great but there was WAY too much kid energy!

Speaking of energy, Malea had a lot! Here is one of her videos.  She was our Pre Dr. Goddards Lab entertainment.  We had to wait outside for about 10 min so everyone was trying to keep each other occupied.  Malea turned out to be the star of the show! She was the youngest there and was the star of the party! Everyone loved her.....even the strangers out there waiting! She is singing Shake Your Groove Thing.

Here is everyone, minus Maks, waiting for the show to start. This was before we discovered a kid was tired, one was scared of loud noises, one was ready to go home, and one was bored. It got interesting after this point!

Well that about concludes the story of Kale turning 5.  All in all it went wonderfully, Kale, Family and Friends all had a great time sharing his birthday with him. Can't wait for next year!
