Parabens Traeger!

Traeger turns 4 years old on Wednesday, July 9th. We celebrated on Saturday with a party at McDonalds with all his friends from school. We had 12 kids come and it was a little crazy, but Traeger had a great time. It was great practice for our Portuguese as we tried to control and listen to 12 very energetic 4 and 5 year olds! Here's some pictures of the party.


They did face painting at the party and Traeger chose to be "homem aranha" (spiderman).



Traeger and his good friend Beatriz. She is a year and a half older than Traeger, but they are best buds at school.
Everyone had fun playing in the play area. The girls faces are painted like butterflies (in case you couldn't tell).

Traeger had a little help with opening his presents. I think he actually opened one or two. The rest were opened for him:)

We finally got a smile from Traeger. He was very embarrassed when everyone sang "Parabens" (Happy Birthday in Portuguese) to him and he refused to blow out the candles, but we finally got him to smile!

We managed to get everyone sitting down for the food and there was actually a few minutes of silence while they all ate.

Karis enjoyed the party as well. Well the french fries anyway!

Hey Traeger, looks like you have lots of fun at the birthday party. I miss you a lot, and so do Karis and your parents too. I like the tricks that you did in your apartment. Looking at the pics made me want to go back to Portugal to see you guys.

By the way, say hi to your friend Beatrice for me. You can send my greetings to Alfonso and others as well.

Love you!
