Chase's Birthday

Somehow, I've gotten in the poor habit of reporting on things weeks after the fact. I'd say I'll try to be better, but that'd be a lie. And, since I'm trying to stay on Santa's nice list right now, lying is not allowed.

Anyway, I digress. My sweet, rambunctious, handsome little guy turned 4 at the beginning of November. 4! I love four-year-olds. They are better behaved (mostly), they listen (not really) and they are funny (completely true).

We celebrated Chase by going to Kangaroo Zoo in Pleasant Grove with my parents. He ran and ran for two hours. It was the perfect place to go for his birthday. Halle and Lizzie tuckered out, but not Chase. He could have climbed up those slides for days. 

Afterwards, Chase chose to go to the Purple Turtle for lunch. He heard the name, and thought it was funny, so we went. I know it's like a PG landmark and all, but we will not be returning. Not my favorite. Chase loved it though, and since it was his birthday, we all lived it up.

On Sunday, his actual birthday, Sam's mom made Chase a birthday dinner that we celebrated at their house. Mashed potatoes! He loved running around with his cousins. 

Chase is such a great kid. He loves going to preschool everyday. He is making great strides with his speech, although it is still a work-in-progress. When we look at how far he has come in a year, it's incredible. We can't wait to see how much he improves in the next year.

At 4, Chase:
*loves playing with his best friend, Marcus
*loves Tom & Jerry
*loves yard work
*loves wearing hoodies, with the hood up
*loves going to BYU games with his daddy
*loves pestering his sisters
*loves playing sports

We love you, Chase!
