The BIG Birthday!!
It was wonderful this weekend. Mason had been on the verge of a fever Friday, so we were a bit worried he would need to go back into the hospital over the weekend. But positive thoughts prevailed and he was fine for his 4th birthday. His Nana and Uncle Joe and Aunt Karen came down from NY for the big day, as well as some friends in the DC area that we know from Bolivia, Honduras and Ecuador.
He got a rockstar guitar, a Batman, and a soccer goal from his family. He rocked out all morning before the party and played some soccer with his birthday guests. The cake was a Batman cake with some added figures from Mason and his brother, Mateo. Mateo made the birthday sign for Mason. In true Latin fashion Mason bit the cake and put his face in it. he loved that part the most I think! We went to the playground at the school and played some football and soccer after the cake.
He got many phone calls and cards wishing him a great birthday. He had a wonderful day and we so appreciate all the friends and family who sent thier good wishes for him.
