He had so much fun turning five.
Weeks ago we began watching an obstacle course competition on TV.
It's called Ninja Warrior (but I have no idea why, is has nothing to do with Ninjas or Warriors)
and the boys love it. Joe is hooked and wanted an obstacle course birthday!
Sounded like fun for an outside birthday to me!

We invited our family and friends, and many came to help Joe turn five.

The course was simple, but perfect if you ask Joe.
He ran it with each new kid that came and some in between

Grandma made his cake

Kids got to make their own gold medals

And at the end of the night we had one HAPPY 
birthday boy!
