ATTITUDE IS A LITTLE THING THAT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE. ~ Winston Churchill

This one is a catch up post. I spent so much time training for the half marathon I ran back in August that I didn't do much posting during the summer months. Winston had his 5th birthday last month - I can't believe he's five already! He's come so far and is growing so fast.
Winston wanted a birthday party so we put one together for him with a few of his friends and his cousins. We did a sports themed party - Brad and I came up with a few games and we had it at the park.
Here's Winston with a couple of his best buddies.
This game was Throw the football through the hoop.
We also had a water balloon race - they had to carry the balloon on a large spoon without dropping it.
Of course, we had a pinata - shaped like a football. :)
The mad scramble for the goodies.
The birthday boy opening his presents.
Mmmm. Birthday cake! (I ate way too much of this.)
Make a wish and blow out the candles. All in all a fun time with family and friends. Our little guy is growing up.
"How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and the strong because at some point in your life, you will have been all of these."
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children...to leave the world a better place...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
