Emmett started out his birthday with a play date with his friend Ezra. My friend Kristy has a salon in her home so while I had my appointment with her, the boys got to play. Emmett was insistent on bringing his balloon. :)
ready to start the day!
When Matt got home from work, Emmett opened his gifts from us. He was really excited to start playing with them.

showing us how old he is!
After dinner, we met Matt's family at Highland Park to play and have cupcakes. We didn't have a birthday party with Emmett's friends this year because we figured he would rather have a quiet birthday at home. He just gets too overwhelmed right now with big groups. Going to the park with a few family members who live in the area was a great fit because Emmett could see some familiar faces, play outside, and still feel like it was his special day.
Emmett really loved his angry birds cupcakes. That is his favorite game to play on the iPad. I hated every minute of decorating them (I am not a baker), but it was worth seeing the smile on his face. They were yummy too.
taking it for a spin
I had his two balloons tied up and Emmett was begging me to let him play with one, but he hates having something around his wrist so risked letting him hold it.
he never let go!
having a blast together
happy birthday bud!
After the park, we stopped at Nelson's for ice cream, because we hadn't had enough sweet stuff yet....
to top it all off, a woman found a dollar on the ground and walked up to Emmett and gave it to him for no reason. lucky butt!
We love you Emmett, and we hope you had a wonderful 4th birthday!
