That's right - we've got a four year old around here! I can hardly believe it. We love this little guy and all of the fun that he brings to our family. He's so curious and full of energy right now - in that stage where he asks "why" and "what does that mean?" all day long. He loves to dance and sing (if he thinks no one is listening) and talk about what he will do when he is big.
His requests for his special day were a strawberry cake and bowling. The bowling took a super long time. He insisted on rolling the ball on his own and his little four year old arms didn't really have the power to get the ball going very fast. Both boys would let the ball go and then stand in a pose for a few seconds, admiring their work. Pretty funny. By about frame 6, Ned was just about done with the bowling, so he let us help a little at that point, but still bowled his last frame.
I'm so glad that Ned is such a happy guy and he brings that happiness to our family. Happy Birthday!
