Yesterday seemed like the longest day ever! I guess with Aidan being sick on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday and then teaching Vacation Bible School Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday we were both worn out. However that didn't stop us from celebrating the big 5!

We started out the day early opening a few gifts!
 Some new lego pencils for school!
 We then quickly got dressed and went to eat doughnuts before VBS. Because that is what you do on your birthday- eat doughnuts for breakfast. Right?

VBS was an amazing experience. There were 270 kids there! Aidan was with one of the Kindergarten classes while I had the 2 and 3 year olds. Here is the ending of VBS. All the kids come together and they sing  and do dance routines they learned throughout the week. Here Aidan is front and center. lol! He is the one in RED. He was supposed to wear his yellow VBS shirt but he wanted to wear his birthday shirt. I thought it was really sweet for them to acknowledge Aidans birthday and all 270 kids wished him a happy birthday! How special :) I have video at the end of all the kids singing and praising Jesus. :)

 After VBS Emily, her mom, and sister went with us to Boomers. They played miniature golf and played video games.

 We then went to dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants and came home and had cake and ice cream.

 and opened more presents!

Here is some video of VBS. The kids are singing, dancing, and praising Jesus. I love it! I wish you could feel the electricity and energy that was in the room. It was enough to bring tears to my eyes and it did.

Well that was how Aidan spent his birthday. Now we just have his birthday PARTY next Sunday. :)
