Oliver's 4th Birthday

On November 14th, Oliver turned four! Since he had already had a little party, his actual birthday was pretty low key. It was a Monday, and he started the day with breakfast and presents.

Oliver brought cookies to daycare to share with his class and then had his favorite dinner of mashed potatoes, chicken nuggets, and peas. He was a little under-enthusiastic about making a birthday video, but I insisted. :)

In addition to his celebrations at home, Oliver also got to see some of his grandparents for his birthday! On the 13th, we drove to Savannah to see Grandma and Grandpa Jennings, who were in town for the weekend. We had breakfast with them and then took a walk by the river. Before heading back home, we were able to see Grandpa Jennings at the art fair where he was displaying and selling his photographs.

Finally, as if that weren't enough birthday excitement, we went to Atlanta for a night in a hotel on the 19th. We picked Grandma Becca up at the airport in the late morning, then went to Ikea for lunch. It so happened that there was free face painting at Ikea, so we took advantage of that and then let the kids play in the play area while we shopped. After that, we checked into the Westin, where we stayed on the 64th floor! The view of the city was amazing. We had dinner across the street at the Hard Rock Cafe before settling in for the night. In the morning, we went to the Majestic Diner for breakfast before going back home to Macon.



Fun with an Air Vent

We even got to see a fireworks show from our window!

I loved Oliver's birthday video! He has gotten so big! Aiden watched it with me and wanted to know why you didn't tape him opening every single present, lol! That hotel pool is awesome! It looks like he had a great birthday!
