We celebrated Koen's 4th Birthday over the weekend.
It was sweet and simple homespun party.
My mom made these cute little cupcakes
with Dinosaur eggs on them and orange frosting,
all at Koen's request.
The children watched a dinosaur presentation
and were able to touch real dinosaur bones and fossils.
They were all mesmerized.
The weather was perfect for a "Dino dig".
Each kid grabbed a shovel
and searched for bones and teeth.
They found some amazing stuff.
Even the big kids had fun
Koen felt a little nervous when it was
time for everyone to sing Happy Birthday.
A moment after this photo was taken
he broke out into big ol' crocodile tears.
He cried during the entire song
while hiding in my chest.
It's hard being the 4-year-old birthday boy
but it was still super cute.
