We decided to start Connor's birthday celebration by taking him to see the movie, Planes. This probably wasn't the smartest decision seeing as how we had just gotten home from vacation the day before! He didn't want to sit very still and we had to wake him up after a 3 hour nap to take him!
We made a last minute decision to have his birthday party at my parents house since we are currently trying to sell our home. As a result, my grandma and grandpa Brauchler couldn't come. Instead, they came to Columbus on Thursday night to help us celebrate! We did a little shopping and went out to dinner (complete with the waiters/waitresses singing happy birthday to him)!
Here he is opening up some gifts from them and us!
We headed to Marion on Friday and ate dinner at Mcdonalds (his favorite) and then went to the Big Dipper for ice cream.
Waiting for their ice cream....
His tractor party was the next morning at my parents. I had everything ready to make his cake, but decided against it due to all that we had going on!
I loved watching him open up his gifts! He didn't know which to play with and kept wanting everything opened.
The girls singing 'Happy Birthday.'

Blowing out his candle....his favorite part!
What's a party without water balloons!
Thanks for all those that came out to celebrate, for the gifts, and cards! Connor had a great time!
