Zack turned five today!

Five years ago, I gave birth to a gorgeous little boy:

Today he turned five years old. I can hardly believe it.

All week, we've had A Present a Day -- a fun tradition for drawing out the birthday wonderfulness.

On Monday, it was a new pair of Crocs, complete with Jibbits:

On Tuesday, it was a Very Noisy Car -- a Hot Wheels Rumbler.

On Wednesday, it was two pairs of swim trunks from Nana. (Sorry there's no picture -- they're in the laundry. But they're very cute!)

Today, on THE Day, he woke up to find that his older brothers had put together a Shake Cars track in his playroom:

First words out of his mouth: "OH! WOW! Mommy, THANKS!"

Later in the morning, we decorated cupcakes to take to preschool. Zack decided that everyone should have a candle:

At school, one of his teachers made him a Birthday Crown:

And yeah, that's a little blurry, but he's five, remember? It took fifteen tries to get THIS one!

Happy Birthday, my best boy!

    It's hard to believe that he's five already and that kindergarten is around the corner.

    I love his Crocs and also how nice his older brothers were to set up such a cool toy.

    Happy birthday to all of you!

    Looking back at that baby photo, I'm struck by how much he looks like you, which is the first time I've ever thought that.

  4. Yeah, most people say he looks just like Rick!

  5. What a cool and sharing/giving child you gave birth too.

    I love that about him.

    Wish him a happy birthday from me too please Lori.
