Cole turns 5!

I cannot believe Cole turned 5 on June 17th! It's true that time really does fly when you're having fun! This is him about 10 days old:

And here's a picture of him on his b-day! He has grown so much!

We had a family party on his actual birthday that his cousins, aunts & uncles, and grandparents came to. My big brother Ben was in town doing some training for his new job, so we were glad he got to come!

On the Saturday after his b-day, we had a friend party with his friends from preschool and church. It was a lot of work, but Cole and his friends had a good time, I think! Thanks to all his friends who came - you made his day! Ryan found an awesome water slide on Craig's list. Of course, he had to set it up inside the house for the kids and test it out (without the water, thankfully). They had a blast and thought it was so funny to have a huge slide inside the house!

Katelyn was too little and kind of scared of the big slide, but she went on her little slide just fine! It's weird that it fit inside our house!

We're so glad to have Cole in our family! We love you tons!

We got a blow up slide for Aiden too! How weird! His is much smaller though -- the 3yr old version I think, but don't tell him that. In your backyard pics I see two of those slides though, an orange and a blue? Wish we could have come to the party. I can't believe Cole is 5! Agh!

I am glad to see that you have posted! His birthday looks like it was a lot of fun! Isaac sure had fun. The cake tuned out great. Daniel even mentioned it to me.
