I decided to have his birthday party mid morning because I knew it was going to be 106 that day and I didn't want everyone melting. The party started at 10:00am and Cruz couldn't have been any more excited. He helped us decorate for his party which made it even more exciting! David's mom and sister Mary came over the night before to help make decorations and frost cupcakes! I am SO grateful for them because I didn't realize what i'd gotten myself into with the "punch piñata" and railroad signs!
For his party they painted a wooden train that could be played with afterward, ate yummy train cupcakes, played on the new swings in our back yard and took turns doing the punch piñata! It's nice to hear "this is the best birthday party EVER" from a couple of the kids! I was able to find cheap train hats for the party favors on Amazon!
Later that night we celebrated with Grandma's and Grandpas! We ate pizza, ice cream and opened presents! I made a 4 train cake which was really yummy and Cruz loved that a brand new train was sitting on the tracks of the cake! I told Cruz that he couldn't turn 4 because then he wouldn't be my little boy anymore .. he assured me that if I let him turn 4 that I would be his little boy and even after he turned 5 I would be his little boy. I'm okay with that.
