Preston's Bday Celebrations

So, Preston decided he still wants to get a bigger and have another birthday.    He was so excited about turning 6 years old.  Madagascar 3 was released the weekend before his birthday and that is one of Preston's favorite movie series.  We invited a few friends from school and church (and a friend for Kaitlyn) and headed to the movies.


While watching the movie, each person got a kids combo that included popcorn, a fruit snack, and drink.


Preston LOVED the movie!


Then, we headed to a restaurant next door for lunch.  Everyone got a chicken strip basket, fries, and a drink.  For dessert, we had some yummy oreo cupcakes with vanilla butter cream made by my friend. She also made the Madagascar fondant toppers and they looked amazing!!!!



Preston loved all of his gifts and had such a fun-filled day!  Best of all, we didn't have to clean up afterwards!!!


The boys are singing to Preston.  We ate on the patio of the restaurant and had to deal with a little bit of wind.

For Preston's actual birthday, things were a little calmer.  Preston wanted to go swimming at our local rec center.  He also kept going down a huge water slide.  


Preston picked what he wanted for his special dinner, Burger King, and Craig's parents joined us.  We suggested lots of other restaurants and I offered to cook whatever he wanted.  He kept insisting on Burger King.  Whatever makes the birthday boy happy....


We headed back home, had more cupcakes and sang to him again.

It was a fun weekend, full of festivities (including Father's Day), and everyone was happy.  Preston's big gift? A Nintendo DSi.
