Today is Mica's birthday! He woke up, and we started singing to him. He said, "No, no stop singing. You have to only sing when we have the robot cake!" We kept singing anyhow.
He'll get his presents from us tonight. Then he has a family party this weekend and a friend party the weekend after. I'm hoping more of his friends RSVP because none of his preschool friends from last year have. Mica so wanted them to come over to our house.
Here's a letter to Mica,
You're already half a decade old! I remember very well the day you were born. You were breech, and would not turn. I tried everything from lying on an elevated ironing board upside down to having the doctor's try and turn you from the outside. Nothing worked! I went in for a c-section. You came out mooning the doctors!
I love watching you play! You have a very good imagination. Right now your favorite things are: Anything Toy Story, building anything from train tracks to Lego towers. You still love to have books read to you, you're starting to read little words on your own!
Mica I'm very excited how independent you've become in the last year. I have to admit I do like it when you need help from time to time. You're a good big brother and son!
I've began reducing my serving sizes at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
My vegetable serving's went up in size.
For breakfast I started using one of the kid's cups for juice, and one of their bowls for cereal (if that is one of the things we are having). Their bowls and cups are more the size of what I should be eating and drinking.
Isaak points at my cup and bowl (which are really both Mica and his) and says, "That's not hyour's (your's) that's mine!" He shakes his head and smiles while he's saying it. ;)
The boy's got to choose one thing to take home. Isaak chose a triceratops stuffed animal. He kept chewing on the horns. We offered to make Mica Build a Dinosaur, woolly mammoth. He declined. He wanted a $5 little binocular like thing. He's never been a stuffed animal kid.
Everything about the Great Wolf Lodge in Kansas City the kids LOVED!
I take that back; Isaak didn't like the bigger water slides. I should of never listened to the life guard when she told me that he'll love it, and that kids younger then him go on it all the time. He might of been ok if he could go with a parent. Daddy pushed him, and Mommy caught him. He scream cried the whole way down. I felt soooo bad!
Their was a little girl that kept going down the kiddy slides with Isaak. She'd hold his hand and walk him up, and they'd go down the slides together. This repeated for about an hour. Her dad said, "Alyssa, you can't go down the same slide." I said, "Her name is Alyssa? My name is Alissa." Too funny!
Mica had no fear. He'd go down anything.
I wanted to get pictures of the kids on some rides, but I didn't know what to do with my camera. I didn't want to mess up the camera around all that water, or get it stollen.
Isaak with alook like he's thinking, "What is this life jacket thing?" Mica with a look like he's thinking, "Mom hurry up and take the picture! I want to get into the water!"
We loved this part of the water park! Especially when water tipped over on us.
There is a spot close to the lobby where story time is at. We missed story time, but did get to see the animals talking and singing. Isaak was dancing. Both boy's were in tune to what the characters were saying.
The boy's were very excited to visit the children's museum in Lincoln, Nebraska!
Mica was literally jumping up and down with a smile on his face!
This is were we got a lot of pictures.

This is only half of what they had. The boy's were all over the place! It was hard getting photo's of them that were not blurry!
One of Mica's favorites was what I called "The Mole Holes." They were holes and hills that kids could climb in and come out somewhere else. I thought it looked like fun, but I hated that Mica would go in and disappear. It made me think of a kid being kidnapped, and a parent not knowing. Isaak got kicked by an older kid, so we just had to watch them all over.
Isaak liked the BIG Melissa and Doug full sized dogs that were in the vet.
They had all kinds of play stations including a pizza parlor, vet, doctor's office, grocery store, 911, farm and more!
