Ben is obsessed with Disney's Cars and Thomas the Tank Engine, so after looking at some ideas online (and not wanting to compete with this), I decided on a Cars themed birthday party this year. It turned out pretty cute and was surprisingly easy to put together. I am a little proud of the invitation.
Alicia and Blaine couldn't make it to the party, so they came to visit earlier in the day to deliver Ben's gift. He is pretty excited to have his own Thomas, but not nearly as excited as Jake was while giving it to him. It was like he was initiating him into his club. The whole scene was seriously adorable.
I can't believe how old Ben is looking and acting. He's talking so well and tries so hard to be one of the big kids. He remains a total sweetheart and I don't know what we'd do without him. Happy birthday little man!!
