Birthday party

This sweet six year old had great celebrations for his big day.  It was on a Sunday, so he kicked it off right by getting sung to at church, which he was excited about.
Then we had some family over for dinner; I made his favorite spicy honey chicken, and cake.
 For his birthday party we borrowed my dad's projector and screen and we screened a movie (Despicable Me 2) with everyone.  We had personal pizzas (the kids topped their own) and a little concession stand where the kids got to pick out their candy and some popcorn.  At the very beginning when everyone was making their pizzas, it was CHAOS, and I was thinking I was crazy for inviting a million six year olds over for dinner and a movie, but it ended up being great!  We had a great time.  (Disclosure: we haven't taken down the screen or projector.  We've been screening movies together every weekend.  Dad might never get his stuff back.)
His gift was a two wheeler bike.  He has had a balance bike (the kind with no pedals) for a couple years, but he didn't ride it a TON... so I wasn't sure if we were going to be able to go straight to the two-wheeler without training wheels, but he picked it up after just a couple days!  We are so proud of him.  He has been riding almost every day since he got it, and he is getting really good.
