Austin was so excited for his birthday this year. He had his first friend party and he decided he wanted to do a fireman/fire truck theme. Before his party we let him open the present from Bryan and so he could wear it to his party -- a fireman outfit.
My mom made this cute fire truck cake with two donuts for the wheels. While everyone was making their little fire truck, Austin’s cousin, Weston, made his own design.
We are so happy to have Austin in our family. He is a fun kid who loves playing with his brother and using his imagination. He likes to hum made-up songs and sometimes makes up songs with words. He likes to lead the singing for Family Home Evening, and also comes home from church singing the songs he’s learning in Primary. It is so fun to watch him grow, but I can’t believe he’s already four! It seems like Ethan just turned four the other day, (a couple of months before moving to California). Austin loves Spiderman, firemen, and character guys in general. He loves wearing hats and beanies, (even in the summer). He knows what he wants and is confident, but he is also shy and pretty sensitive. The other day we were at the library getting some books, and the guy that reads stories for story time had a huge puppet tarantella, and snuck it over the book shelf and scared Austin. Austin’s face turned bright red. I have never seen him so embarrassed or so red. The guy let Austin scare him with it and for the rest of the time at the library he was trying to think of something to do to scare him back. He loves avocado and will sit and eat it plain (with just a little salt). He also loves bananas. He says when he grows up he wants to be a fireman. Happy birthday Austin, We Love You!
