Benjamin's 5th Birthday

Benjamin's 5th birthday was February 17th, 2010. The theme was, of course, Spiderman. Since Benjamin's enjoyment of Spiderman continues, I went ahead and purchased a Spiderman cake pan. Daddy had the day off of work, so we had the party on his actual birthday. It was a bit rushed though because we had it scheduled to include Dan, Ben's uncle who wouldn't get home from work until around 5:00 pm. Also, since it was a Wednesday, we had to rush so everyone could get off to Wednesday church. But, it was lots of fun for Benjamin to have the family there to celebrate his big day. :)

A few weeks before his birthday, after a discussion about him wanting to blow bubbles but he didn't have any, I mentioned maybe he'd get some for his birthday. Benjamin told me:

"I hope so! And a spiderman toothbrush, that would be special! And a fishing pole with fish!" (Last year from Dan & Becky he got a plastic fishing pole with a magnet at the end to catch plastic fish with metal on their mouths. It didn't take long for the much-loved toy to break so this year he wanted another, which so far has lasted longer than last year's!)
