Batman (Lleyton) turned 5!

Lleyton is convinced he is Batman, which I have a difficult time disagreeing with sometimes, especially when he is donning the Batman cape that Sara made him for his birthday and flying through the house.  Today was Batman's big day, that is unless you believed what he was telling everyone leading up to today, that he was already 5.  I have a Russian birth certificate that says otherwise. 

Our little guy woke up this morning and came down the stairs to find a new tradition, balloons hanging in his honor, each hiding a surprise inside. 

After popping each balloon and feeding his piggy bank with what was inside, it was time to belly up the table for Sara's soon-to-be-famous birthday cake pancakes covered in a sugary glaze.

Along with the delicous pancakes, Sara also stepped up her game when it came to the little man's birthday cake(s).   Being that Lleyton loves trucks of all kinds, we figured he would love nothing more than a birthday cake in a dumptruck, hence Sara put together this gem...

Although Lleyton was very excited to see the cake, to our surprise he said he didn't want to eat it because it was dirty.  I guess the "dirt" cake came together a little too well. 

Onto Plan B, I threw Lleyton and Addy into the car and headed off to the grocery store to pick up the makings for another fantastic cake.  Lleyton's favorite candy cake...

That's a cake wrapped in Kit Kats and topped with M&Ms.  Could there be anything better?  Lleyton didn't think so.

Grandma Susie and Grammy and Pop joined us for dinner at Lleyton's favorite restaurant before we came back home for the cake and ice cream. 

All-in-all, I think our little Batman had a great day, and his brother and sister seemed just as thrilled to celebrate it with him.
