For the past couple of days, we've been celebrating Henry's first five years.
And, it's been great.
We kicked off his birthday with traditional breakfast and presents in bed.
The birthday boy's request: granola and an apple.
He wasn't really interested in the food as much as the presents.
We spent the rest of the day playing with new toys and getting ready for his Ninjago party.
We baked a cake (Funfetti was his choice) and made a pinata.
Larry's Pizza was Henry's pick for dinner. And we were pleasantly surprised to find the Hot Springs Larry's even better than the Little Rock Larry's.
We started out with Ninja headband decorating.
We roasted hot dogs, munched on brownies and chips, and chatted with friends.
Game time was a scavenger hunt for the four Weapons of Spinjitzu.

First, the Nunchucks of Lightning in a tall tree.
Then the Scythe of Quakes, in a deep dark cave/crawl space.
Third, were the Shurikens of Ice, hidden in something that resembles an igloo.
Then, on to find Kai's Sword of Fire.
After all the weapons were found, the kids had to save Nya from the evil Lord Garmadon pinata.
Cake and presents followed.
I think Henry had a really good time, which was the whole point.
We sure love this boy.
