AJ's big week

I think I may have used that exact title around this time last year.  I have just realized that the last day of school will always be the same week as AJ's birthday.  How fun for him!  How stressful for me!  ;)

School ended for AJ on Thursday, May 30th this year.  He had field day the day before, which he had a blast with even though it had to be moved inside.  Then on Thursday morning he had "Kindergarten Celebration."  The classes celebrated finishing kindergarten & moving on to first grade.  We all went to watch AJ & then went out to Scramblers' (AJ's choice) for breakfast.

Adrian was able to take the whole day off so after breakfast, he took AJ & Daniel out for a day of fun things that AJ chose to do.  They went to the splash pads, got a brownie for a treat & played in the park.  AJ had requested a camp out but since Adrian had to work Fri morning, they did that early & slept in the tent Thurs night instead.  Very fun end of the year for AJ!

The weekend after that was AJ's 6th birthday.  It started with a tee ball game where Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Jackie, Josh & Great Grandma all got to go watch.  AJ played a great game & won the game ball for the game!!

After the game everyone came back to the house for a family party and Uncle Carl, Aunt Sarah & Isabelle joined us.  We had yummy food, lots of great presents & ice cream cake.  Such a fun day with the family!

Sunday morning was the actual birthday!  We got up, had breakfast & then we got ready for the friends' party.  We headed out to Magic Mountain for our day of fun.  They did a great party for us!  We had pizza & drinks, then opened presents & ate yummy Star Wars cake.  And I didn't have to do anything.  :)  Then we headed downstairs to the arcade, play area & mini golf.  AJ had a great time playing & stayed for 4 hours!  When he finally got home we did our presents & then Skyped with Nana & Pop Pop to open their presents.  It was a super busy weekend & so much fun!!

I'm so proud of all AJ has learned and done this year in Kindergarten!  He is growing into quite a young man & I love seeing his personality develop.  We are looking forward to some quality time together this summer.
