Birthday Bliss

Joshua had a fabulously fun fourth birthday last week.  Dave took the day off from work and we played all day.
 Joshua got to be in charge and he was very happy to insist that Daddy play "Super Mario" on the Wii.

His first present of the day was from our good friends on site Krissy, Slade and Jack. It's Joshua's first cricket set. Did you know Littleton has a group that plays cricket at a park near our house? 

Then the dogs got into the presents giving mood and Joshua received some "Match Box" cars.

Joshua's cousin Anthony and his family sent along a very cool pirate puzzle and fun book that were a definite hit with Joshua!

We let Joshua pick out food for his birthday supper.  We had french fries, quesidillas, and "Kool-Aid". (French fries are a very big deal because he never gets to eat them with everybody else here in Ghana.  There is too big of a risk that peanut oil was used in the fryer at some point.)
We had a super hero cake thanks to our dear friend Jamie who sent along special cake pans and supplies for special occasions.
Then we opened the rest of the presents including a cool boat from Mommy and Daddy.

After playing with the new toys for a bit, it was time for a good night's sleep. Joshua was disappointed the next morning when he didn't get to dictate the day again.  Only 362 days to go until next time my dear boy!
