Birthday Celebration, Part I

We have been pretty busy here. Not the least of which was due to two birthday celebrations for Kai in the past week and a half.

And it’s not even his birthday yet.

The first celebration was the weekend before last. We had my sister, brother-in-law and father over so it was a perfect time to have our first early birthday celebration.

We had a rib roast for his birthday dinner, but for Kai, the only thing that really mattered is birthday cake and presents.

Here he is blowing out the candles on his cake.

And then it was time to open presents. My sister’s dog wanted to see what Kai got.

It was a balloon game from his grandfather.

Kai was really absorbed in two science experiment kits he got from his aunt and uncle.

Kai wanted to start doing some experiments right away, but we convinced him to play the balloon game with everyone. The object of the game is to take turns pushing the rods in a little at a time until the balloon pops. Kai was nervous in anticipation of the pop.

But when it finally did pop, he laughed along with everyone else.

The next morning, he started on his first experiment.

And every evening for the rest of the week we did science experiments instead of our usual evening game.

And so it was on that first week of celebrating Kai’s birthday. But this year, his birthday celebration will be a nearly month-long event. There will be more to come.


  1. Kai is very lucky...a nearly month long birthday! I rmember a similar game to that balloon game when I was young. The science experiment kit is a very good gift choice also. He will learn to love science...and if he does...all of life will be fun and interesting!

    1. Kai really enjoys science. He got a similar set for chemistry at Christmas and he did all of those experiments in a few days, too.

  2. you can never have too much cake or too many candles :) Happy Birthday Kai!
