My boy turned 5 yesterday. We are spending his birthday at the grandparents every year.
Here is Dani on his 5th birthday morning, right after waking up
I somehow like these docu-kinda captures. They are maybe not the best quality, but look real.
And there is one of his birthday presents next to him on the couch, Buzz Lightyear. He got Woody already as a christmas present about 2 years ago.
Buzz is a bit more exciting, as he can speak too.
Anyway, I usually don’t make a big deal of the decoration, just a few balloons turned out to be enough for the kids for a great party feeling.
As for the other presents. Dani got four new Djeco ArtyToy figures
Maximus and Pirate Kyle on his throne,
and the Hop! Hop! Hop! game also by Djeco
It’s a pretty simple, cooperative board game. All the players have the same purpose, to lead the shepherdess, the sheeps and the dog – in this order – from the mountains into the house, before the wind destroys the whole bridge. Of course it’s beautiful, as the Djeco toys usually are. It’s got wooden details.
Zóri is just 2.5 years old, but played easily with us.
Dani’s other presents were Lego sets. Lego is his favourite! I understand. My son is a creative mind, he uses his fantasy during playing. You should play board games along its rules, and its hard to make him sit to play a game like this, but we are trying, this is why we bought the Hop! Hop! Hop!. But Lego…is another story. He is free. He could use every piece for whatever he wants. For example he can put Spiderman’s head onto Doctor Octopus’ body, and backwards. Or put a surfboard onto the wall of a house, because it’s a shop, selling skateboards. Yes. Skateboards. A surf doesn’t have wheels? Who cares. He can use his mind free.
He’s got as birthday present two sets and a box of various Lego pieces (by now, because his birthday lasts usually at least for two weeks, so who knows what he’ll get from the other friends and relatives we haven’t met yet)
Great-grandma didn’t let neither our little girl without present. She got a duplo set
After some playing came the usual chocolate cake. This time I let to make it for the pros.
Funtime in the pool, while mom is taking photos is the part of the daily routine on Dani’s birthdays.
After my son picked the proper bag for himself, my cam lens got a little water too:
He is so good in the water by now, that maybe he should start learn to swim next year.
And yes, we took the obligatory family shots as well
My boy had a happy birthday. Again.
