So Lloyd and Mama had a “Car” birthday theme all picked out for Wyatt’s big-day,

that is,

until Wyatt announced to us matter-of-factly the day before his birthday

“I’m having a Dinosaur cake for my birthday tomorrow.”

Al-righty then…

Who can argue with the Birthday Boy.

Especially one as cute as Wyatt!

Quick change of plans… and the team came up with something just-right for Little Buddy.

BUT FIRST…

We sent him away

FOR HIS FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL!!!!!

Here in New Zealand the tradition is for children to begin school on their 5th Birthday regardless of when that falls in the year.

For Wyatt this was a dream come true as he has been watching the girls’ excitement over school with longing.

His turn finally came!

Here’s Wyatt on his FIRST day of school, with his FIRST teacher (Mrs. Shead), and his FIRST friend (Millie).

And here’s our Buddy with his sisters…

Aspen, Wyatt, Betsy, Faith and Nalia

He looks a little concerned in both of these photos.

It might have to do with the hefty dose of feminine energy he is surrounded by.

SORRY BUDDY!

Let’s get on to something more “BOY”…

Like this lot.

Our party-team in action.

Whew!

THAT’S BETTER.

O KAY…

Back to the beginning again…

Five-year-old Mister’s day began with a Prehistoric bang…

And while Wyatt was at school our decorating team was hard at work…
