Go Koji Go (Get It? Five in Japanese is "GO"...)

Our son is five years old. I find it unbelievable that it's already been five years since Easter 2003, when we first met Koji. Here's how he looked:

And here's who he's become:

That's right, we used his fifth birthday as an excuse to buy a trampoline. I think we pretty much got our investment back right at his party; the kids had that much fun jumping, and praise God, we avoided major injuries!

We had other birthday party trappings, of course. Our pinata was kind of a bust, and I mean that literally. The kids barely tapped on it and candy started gushing out. I guess that could have been a good thing, from their perspective, but I wanted them to work a little harder!

Here's this year's cake. The whole party was meant to have an open hand=five kind of a theme to it, but this hand came out looking more gorilla than human. Oh well.

Happy Birthday, Koji Lucas. We love you!

If you have a lot of free time and would like to see every last party picture, then be my guest!

I love that picture of K on the trampoline. It just screams his personality. We love you too Koji! Happy Birthday.

You truly have the most beautiful babies (even when they are not so baby-ish anymore). :)
