Lincoln's party

We had the grandparents over for Lincoln's birthday on Sunday.  He got a big tractor and wagon from Grandpa & Grandma Boote.  It killed Grandpa that the tractor was green, but it was the most kid-friendly one they found.  Lincoln loved it regardless of the color.

Grandpa & Grandma Lorenzen brought some new trucks and the Elefun game.  Both kids loved it!

 He also got a big new ball and a beautiful kite book from cousins.

I did myself a favor and ordered a cake from the Fareway bakery.  It had two nice plastic construction toys digging up crushed Oreo cookies.  Emily had picked out a "digger" theme for Lincoln months ago. came through with <48 hour standard shipping for paper supplies when none of the stores I had gone to carried anything but licensed character products.

I didn't get a clear picture of Lincoln blowing out his candles, but there is a video of him singing "Happy Birthday" to himself along with everyone else in the May play list.  Lincoln LOVED the toys on top of the cake.  So much so, he decided to eat his cake using his new equipment.  And I let him because it was his birthday. :o)  As expected, in the end very little cake was actually consumed.  Just a lot of frosting.  But he had a lot of fun!

It was actually a bit chilly, but we enjoyed being outside.  Here are three generations of Lorenzen men hanging out on the tailgate.  Thanks to the grandparents for a memorable day!
