Happy "Early" Birthday Cruz

Cruz got to celebrate an early birthday twice while we were in the States.  Here are some photos of his party with David's family-
the birthday boy

They gave him a monkey themed party and I loved it.  It looked like something I would have picked out myself.  It was all very cute.

David's cousin Tiffany made the cake.

We are happy to have this little boy to celebrate with!

I was not excited about letting him eat cake.  I was wanting to wait until his actual birthday for him to experience that, but I gave in and let him have the cake only with no icing. 
He had a fun time playing with it.

Afterward many of us visited the local park and played on the playground equipment, walked on the nature trails, and watched the ducks.  It was a fun way to end a fun day. 

Special occasions such as that make it hard to be away from family.  We are thankful that we had the opportunity to celebrate Cruz's birthday with them even if it was a little early.
