Luke's Birthday

Camilla helping to stuff the bear. Luke really didn't even want to get close, but you can see him in the background with me.

Luke really didn't even want to hold his monkey at first.

Luke had a great birthday. He awoke to decorations and balloons. Camilla came in and asked if she could skip school. I asked her why and she told me "because it is Luke's birthday." She was worried she would miss out on the festivities (all she missed was me making the cupcakes).

Luke decided he wanted "Old McDonald's" for lunch, even Chris got to join us. He also wanted to go to Build a Bear Workshop for his birthday, so we went in the evening. Camilla brought her bear that she had made before, Miley, and decided to pick out an outfit for her, rather than make a new bear. Luke picked a monkey and named him Bananas. Once we got there, Luke just was not excited. I don't know if he was being shy or if it was because he fell asleep for a few minutes in the car. Of course, Camilla was excited to step in and "help" Luke make his monkey. Luke finally was excited when he spotted a Buzz Lightyear costume for Bananas. He was so excited to have Bananas have a matching costume with him!

After dinner, at a yummy BBQ place, Waldo's, we came home and opened presents. He was excited about every present he opened and was excited he didn't have to wait anymore. Camilla found Luke a remote control Lightning McQueen Race Car (which they are both enjoying). He also got a really great first scooter (Radio Flyer). It has two wheels in the front, one in the back, and a really wide platform to stand on. It can only be turned a little bit, so it should work great for Luke. He has been riding it around the house. He was also excited by the water guns and bubble machine and loved the baseball and baseball mit from Grandma and Grandpa Norton. He is asking everyone if they want to play baseball. He is just too cute and already seems older.

I LOVE the picture of the kids sitting on the bench with their little friends. Camilla and Luke look so Happy!
