It was a very full, busy week last week, and then the weekend was great. I want to share pictures of our Easter celebration soon, but first I’m going to share some pictures of Caleb’s birthday festivities. (Lots of celebrating going on around here lately!)

You already saw our trip to the zoo. That same evening, we had Caleb’s birthday dinner (one day early, so we could participate in Maundy Thursday services at our church). He chose pancakes, smoky links, and orange juice.

We also had chocolate cake and mint chocolate chip ice cream. Below is Caleb’s super-cool spider cake. This is the first *fun* birthday cake I’ve made for the kids, and I must admit it was really easy. But doesn’t he look cool?

Blow out the candles, Caleb!

That evening, we attended a Grand Rapids Griffins hockey game. We were up in the nosebleeds, but it was still fun. We left after the second period, and Caleb let us know that he wanted to stay “all night long.” Here are some pictures from the game…

All in all, it was a full, fun day. And then when he woke up the next morning, on his *actual* fourth birthday, this is what he saw…

Happy birthday, Caleb! We love you!
