Tyler is 4!


Tyler turned 4 at the end of May. He really wanted a Rescue Bot Birthday (it is a Transformers cartoon on Netflix) so I worked hard to make it happen. There are 6 Rescue Bots. He already had two and each set of Grandparents bought him one. We bought him the 5th and after much searching realized the 6th was rare and hard to find. It cost $30 or more to buy it on ebay or Amazon and I just wasn't willing to go that far. So, he was just going to have to live with having 5 of the 6. His birthday was on a Saturday, so we celebrated and he opened all his presents. We didn't have his cake and ice cream until the next day, on Sunday. Saturday night I headed out to Wal-Mart to get some supplies I needed for his cake. They sell sets of very small Rescue Bots for $5 and I thought that I would buy one of those and put it on his cake instead of worrying how else to make a Rescue Bot cake. As I walked down the toy aisle, I was overjoyed to see, sitting randomly on a shelf, the elusive Blades...for $11!! I couldn't believe it and threw it into my cart like it was 5:00 AM on Black Friday. I was just as excited as he was to bring out a cake topped with Blades. I love these pictures that capture his excitement too! Happy Birthday Tyler!

 And...pretty much the cutest baby ever!!!
