Bowen had such an incredible time at Chuck E Cheese's last week. My friend Abby took these sweet photos of Bowen next to his monster truck cake.
What a difference a year has made. In all of Bowen's birthday celebrations, the moment the attention turned to him for song and candles, he turned away, tears welled up (it was not his thing!!!). Although Bowen was shy to stand up in front of his crew of friends at the head of the table this year...he did. He smiled as he blew out this candles and heard his name in the birthday song. He was unsure of his safety next to the enormous mouse named Chuck E Cheese...but posed like a big kid for photos.
All of the kids were playing together (interactive) instead of by themselves. Everyone sat patiently at the table to eat pizza and cake. Bowen along with his friends seemed so mature. Wow, I can't believe he's four!
Will post more photos when I get my act together!
