After waking up a happy boy, Hudson had a number three pancake to start his special day.

Thank you Eagle Fire Department the guys really made Hudson feel special on his special day.
After the fire station we headed to one of Hudson's favorite parks, we then took a walk by the river.

After a full day Friday we had a quiet morning at home before putting swim lessons to use in the newly opened neighborhood pool, then it was off the Eagle Island State Park where we got a chance fish.

Eagle Island had a free fish day (no license required), they also provided the equipment.

Before heading home the kids took a little dip
On Sunday we kept the fun going. Noah continued to educate the kids on Bad Piggies, we went bowling, and then the kids headed to the toys store to spend some birthday money.

After saying goodbye to Oma, Opa, and Noah we ended the weekend at a neighborhood picnic. After a beautiful weekend the rain moved in, but we didn't let that stop us from enjoying good food and getting to know our neighbors.
