Dawson's Big Day(s)

Dawson turned SIX on September 21st. 
We spread the celebratory festivities over several days. 
Kiersten made chocolate cupcakes with frosting, sprinkles and candied Legos at his request to share with his classmates at school on Friday. They serenaded him with an upbeat birthday song I wasn't familiar with, a birthday card and a 1st reader book. 
Dawson gave me the obligatory cheese when I asked him to smile for a picture :)
This one pulls on the momma heartstrings a bit more.
Ahhhhh, my handsome devil of a sweet boy!
Evan joined us early Friday evening for supper, play time, a movie (Star Wars) & popcorn and Dawson's 1st {hosted} sleepover.

Saturday was jam packed with fun!
We played miniature golf at Smiley's with his two buddies, Evan VonMoss and Brandon Lewis.
According to Travis, D has a natural swing, but I wouldn't exactly say it showed on the putt putt course. The boys were being boys! We left Smiley's and headed to Dickinson Theatres to see the movie Planes, then had lunch, cupcakes & gift opening at McDonalds.
After Evan and Brandon's parents picked them up, our family of 5 reloaded and headed to the River Run car show in Ottawa, Kansas. The picture above was the state of our troops in route to Ottawa. One followed by the other drifted off into a deep sleep.
The car show was phenomenal and something we will absolutely attend again in years to come. The weather was beyond perfect and the cars didn't disappoint! We all wished we had more time to spend there but alas we had evening plans.
We made a super fast 5 minute pit stop back at the house to change into blue jeans, grab our sweatshirts and hit the road to Liberty to watch the William Jewel Cardinals football team with the Eaton family which consists of D's favorite teen bud, Corey. It was a wonderful evening in which our little man was spoiled and given lots of love and attention. 
Sunday morning we opted to sleep in and played hooky from church. Dawson opened his gifts from us which were a Star Wars Lego set, a Star Wars wall puzzle, refill foam darts for his Nerf guns and the Action Bible (which was immediately confiscated by his sister who <3 it="" nbsp="" p="" reading="" s="">

He has his eye on this Lego set (costs $100 gulp) so we are saving up his birthday cash & chore earning and waiting on a great sale.
