Jack got a special birthday party for his 6th birthday this past year. (Disclaimer: if you're reading this blog, this post is about 8 months late. Yep, 8 months. Right now I'm dating it with the current date, but I will correct the publish dates to get this next series of posts in their correct chronological order in the next few weeks.)
So Jack turned the big 6 this May and was really excited to celebrate. He awoke to a special surprise breakfast- chocolate sprinkle donuts with chocolate milk! Then he left for school like any normal day.
He had his party the next day at our city's gymnastics center, where the boys took a few months' of classes.

This was the group favorite- running/jumping along the trampoline runway into the "foam pit." What's not to love about that?
We played classic parachute games
We finished up with cake and presents in the party room. I was quite proud of the cake I made for Jack this year- themed from the movie Planes, it featured blue skies, wispy clouds, and plane figurines from the movie.
Jack got plenty of great gifts, including a few Lego sets, transforming dino/cars, a Mario/Luigi shirt, and a remote control Dusty plane from his grandparents. He did not want for anything!
I love how this picture captures his joyful enthusiasm at just the right moment-
It was a great party and a great birthday. I think we succeeded in making Jack feel special that weekend, which he deserves, especially since sometimes we just get so busy with his little brothers. We love you Jack!
