Our big 4 year old

Patrick turned 4 today. It feels so strange to have a 4 year old. It still feels like to me that he should be 2 maybe rather than 4. We wanted to celebrate his birthday with a small family party and one friend. He of course chose Caleb so when I told him that Caleb would be coming because he was family than his next choice was obviously Roegan Cola. So we invited the Colas to join us. That morning we had planned to go to the temple for our friends Larissa and Mikey Taylors sealing and then come home for Patricks party. Jesús and I had a wonderful time at the temple, I got to wear one of my new dresses.Then we waited after the sealing for Larissa and Mikey to come out
They looked amazing and happy
Jesús and I headed back to Bakersfield and stopped on the way to eat at an Italian restaurant called Buca di Beppo. It had great food and a fun atmosphere. After lunch we quickly made it home to get ready for the party.
Patrick was the happiest little boy opening up all his presents, he kept yelling Thank you!! And I have always wanted one those.
The boys loved playing with Patricks new presents.
Patrick got this really cool police officer costume and he hasn't taken it off since except for church. Maybe someday he will be like Matt Gates! I bet he would love to see him in his uniform.
Saturday night I went and got Patrick a birthday balloon so he would have it Sunday morning when he woke up. The first thing he told me was "Mom! Thank you for my superheros balloon!"
After church I wanted to get a picture of the kids in their Sunday clothes for Patricks birthday.

You look awesome in that dress! The dress is cute too, but the body is great! All that running has paid off.
