Otto turns FOUR!

It seems like just yesterday we were getting started on this parenting journey, and now we have a FOUR year old. Just crazy how time passes. 

Otto is not a shy guy when it comes to opinions, and for months he has been planning his camping party. He specifically wanted to sleep in a tent and tell scary stories around the fire. His aunts, uncles, and grandparents were gung-ho about his ideas and made it happen in a big way. 

The night before his party, he and Chris set up a tent in my parents front yard and slept outside. He woke up bright and early, "Dad! It's morning! Hurry, lets go inside. All my friends are there and are going to yell surprise!". Being that it was before seven in the morning, all of his 'friends' were still sleeping, but we made sure to decorate and yell surprise later the next day. 

That afternoon and night were spent at Brookshire's Park on Lake Palestine. MG borrowed the pontoon boat, and the kids enjoyed the playground while the guys grilled a delicious dinner. 

First time tubing!

He wasn't sure at first but quickly caught on and was a pro before the morning was over.

Meri even took a turn! She loved it, crazy dare-devil.

The boating crew!
He's been specifically requesting a red bike with little wheels for balance for awhile, and was pumped to get it (and his 'armor') as a gift. 
Love you big kid! Happy fourth!
