Turning 4 is awesome!

Here are some more highlights from Oliver's birthday month. Grammy and Grandpa came and brought new golf clubs with them for Oliver's birthday gift! And, the kid can hit! He's a natural! Now we just have to work up the nerve to take him out with us on an actual round at the course and see if his interest can hold for at least 9 holes! :)
Oliver also got a "new" bike for his birthday. Well, it's new to him anyways. Matt's business partner has taught 3 kids how to ride on this bike, and was kind enough to loan it to us for kid #4! Oliver is eager to pedal downhill, but is kinda lazy when it comes to pushing uphill. We are working on it (He may have his mom's genes when it comes to bike riding).
Aunt Meghan came to visit us the latter part of Oliver's birthday week - and she gave Oliver a new soccer goal and ball to hone his skills. There have been lots of goals scored already and has come in handy during World Cup '14 Fever (but why does it have to last a WHOLE month???)!
And, last but not least, Nana and Pa-Pa chipped in to give Oliver a big boy bed for turning the big 4! Oliver adjusted right away and loves it. I am still adjusting to seeing him in an all-growed-up bed in the mornings. Where does the time go (sniff, sniff)???

Oliver's 4th Birthday Party!

I know, I'm slacking. Forgive me bloggers, for I have's been a month since my last posting. That's because the Coles house just will not stop this month! I know lots of exciting things have happened...Oliver went to Nana and Pa-Pa's for almost a whole week; my law school friends came to visit (it had been 7 years since we all have seen each other); and I went with Oliver's class to the Topeka Zoo (Grammy & Grandpa got to go too). But nothing was more exciting than Oliver's birthday party this past weekend. We went to Lawrence Gymnastics Academy for the 2nd year in a row, and Oliver and 17 of his closest friends went wild and had a blast! How do I know they had a blast? Well, have a looksie at the photos I *attempted* to take of Oliver during the party...

He is the human blur.

He finally sat still for the (almost) group shot.

And then at dinner with our nearest and dearest after the party, here is his face when I asked if his party was fun.
(Still kinda blurry. Hmm, maybe it's user error after all). :)

His real birthday is Wednesday, June 11th, so more pics to come!
