Our first stop on Abe's Magical Birthday Tour started at Abe's AMAZING Montessori School and his special birthday celebration.
It was so much fun watching Abe in a classroom setting...
Abe's AWESOME teacher, Miss Becky, started the ceremony and explained Abe would be traveling around the sun four times to represent how many times the earth has traveled around the sun since Abe was born.
The students sang a little song as Abe very seriously made his Birthday Pilgrimage.
Abe also showed his classmates a picture of himself at various ages.
I must say, it was "a sacred time" for the parents and grandparents!
Joe and I treated Noah, Amy, and Abe to some birthday gifts at Barnes & Noble.
After all, they had something to do with Abe's birth!
At The Cheesecake Factory...
A birthday lunch was definitely in order...
The Birthday Fairy texted Daddy and told him Abe's presents had arrived and we needed to get home!
A bit later...
Wow! The Birthday Fairy had quite a few orders to fill from parents and grandparents alike.
Abe was quite excited about his first playmobil set.
A Butterfly Garden...
The Birthday Fairy left Oma/Joe's gift in the garage.
We hoped Abe was "ready" for his own battery operated police car.
Joe explained how to operate the car and Abe listened very intently.
Abe was MORE than ready to drive his own car.
Amy helped Abe with moving the lever to reverse.
He caught on very quickly.
Scott and Brooke joined us for some birthday fun and a pizza party!
Time to fill up the bouncy ball....
Abe had a "ball" bouncing up and down his driveway!
Birthday Cake Time...
Look at that beautiful face
We are so blessed to be Abe's grandparents.
Brooke was in dog heaven...She loves Ellie.
Joe and Abe got busy putting everything together.
And there was playtime for these two kindred spirits!
The next day...
Amy informed us Abe was busy arresting "people" all day!
We had the VERY best of times celebrating Abe's birthday.
He is the sunlight in our lives and we love him with all of our hearts...
