Our sweet little Buzz turned four on June 22nd! It's hard to believe just how quickly the time has passed in his life. He is a busy, happy go lucky kiddo who loves music, playing instruments, running and throwing and kicking balls, playing games, doing puzzles, painting, giggling, jumping on the trampoline, baking and cooking with Mama, riding bikes, blowing bubbles, reading stories and so much more. We have a great time together and I just love my little snuggly guy so much. He is such a blessing to us!
We celebrated Buzz' birthday with presents at home, just our family. I was helping with VBS at our church this past week, and the last day happened to be Buzz' birthday. Since I was leading preschool music for his class, I led the class in singing happy birthday to him. I think he loved it! For dinner, we went to our favorite burger restaurant that has a bird for a symbol...so much fun. We love being in the birthday club there so that we can get FREE meals! Then we played together. Yesterday we went to a Swedish festival at the Gammelgarden Museum nearby. VERY fun way to spend the day and to continue to celebrate our little guy! It was such a nice time being together as a family this weekend.
Here are some pictures from Anders' first four years of life!
