My mom and nephew Dakota were still here on Jaden's actual birthday. We took chocolate chip cookies to his class and Dakota got a tour of his school. Dakota was impressed that the elementary school had it's own swimming pool! :-)

|Andres was busy writing his sign "class clown" during the first picture, so we had to take a second. He really is the class clown!|
For dinner that evening, we ended up with some unplanned, but most welcomed guests. My friend needed a last minute sitter for her 3 little ones and Jaden was super excited to get to babysit them. His friend Skyler ended up sticking around for dinner as well, so we had a full house for dinner! It was super fun!!
|Jaden was more excited than I expected over his kindle. He now reads in the middle of the night when he can't sleep. Maybe the kindle was a bad idea. (And the baby in my arms is my friend's littlest one ... don't get any ideas!)|

|Not sure what inspired this one!|
|Every outing to a fancy restaurant should include a shoulder sit, right?? No clue what was going on at this point, but this is likely the reason this restaurant does not allow children during dinner. :-)|

After lunch we invited everyone back to our house for ice cream cake and to stay and play. It was a perfect birthday! Ken and I had just as much fun visiting with his friends parents as Jaden had with his friend. I love it when the entire families connect!!!
