In a startling breach of family tradition we actually celebrated someone's birthday
on their actual birthday
(as opposed to the nearest weekend).
Wyatt turned 14 on Tuesday.
I can hardly believe it.
We had a really fancy party...
... in the backyard, followed by...
... present time...
... Aunty Tami cleverly attached money to one of Wyatt's favorite snacks -
Krusty Krispy Treats...
... while Tate watched from his own chair...
... Gunnar wanted a closer look at Wyatt's RC Helicopter...
... followed by Wyatt's favorite -
While it was not quite as breath-taking as last year's party,
when he learned he was going to Disneyland,
we had a fun time celebrating and he was thrilled to receive enough
money and gift certificates to buy a new skateboard he's been wanting.
More pics of that later...
But my oh my, what a year this has been for Wyatt!
Seems like he is changing before my eyes
from a boy to a young man.
Okay, the boy is definitely still there (!) but I see him growing and maturing.
Doing more things independently.
Acting and looking more mature.
(Did you catch the peach fuzz on his upper lip?)
Seems like just yesterday he was
this little monkey!
Happy Birthday, Wyatt!
