For Cole's actual 4th birthday, we went to Chuck E Cheese's (at Cole's request) and then out for pizza. He had a GREAT time (I was exhausted).
The next weekend was his birthday party, and we planned a superhero party (he couldn't decide on just 1, so it was a batman, superman, spiderman combo). We rented a bouncehouse and were all ready to party when Cole started vomiting. After finding out that others in his class were sick too, we decided we'd have to cancel his party.
For a while, it looked like only Chase would get to enjoy the bouncehouse:
But by afternoon, Cole had perked up and was able to go out and play with Chase for a while before the bouncehouse people came back to pick it up. Here he is hamming it up for the camera:
