happy 4th birthday jake!

happy happy birthday from all of us to you. we wish it was our birthday so we could party too! wait, we can still party. can and did.

where else would a 4 year old kid want to go for a birthday party? chuck e cheese!

this guy has seen one too many children’s parties.

first stop was the game room. it’s like a vegas for pre-schoolers. eagle-eye kim spotted this shot. me likey.

another kim shot.

try as he might, jakey was not winning the stacks of tickets that he wanted.

frustration reared it’s ugly head.

jakey’s gettin upset!

rain came to the rescue with handfuls of tickets and shared some with jake.

THIS IS CAKE TOWN! it’s delicious.

bootsy in tha house!

now for the good part. the prizes. kimi, tell jake what he’s won!
well jake, since you’re a young man that needs stuff, how about… a hundred dollars! that’s right. a crisp benjamin from your uncle king.

but wait, there’s more! more?! squealed jake.

that’s right! you’ll be the envy of every kid in town when they see you in this…

brand new clone trooper helmet! oooooo! aaaaaaahhh!

why don’t you just look over there and watch your uncle glenn get it out of the box for you & never mind that tugging sensation you feel in your right hand.

what? what happened? someone stole your hundred dollar bill? that’s terrible. are you sure you didn’t drop it? where was the last place you saw it? are you sure it was in your right hand? i think it was in your left hand.

no, it wasn’t me. i’ve been holding this camera and taking pictures. no, i don’t think i caught the perp on camera? hey, what are you doing looking at the lcd on the back of my camera?

if i don’t get my hundo back right now SOMEBODY GONNA GET A HURT REAL BAD. somebody.

while we search for the perp, let’s check in on uncle G to see how that helmet is coming along.

we’ve already seen his handy work on rain’s helmet. jake’s should be easy.


glenn could never be A REAL CLONE TROOPER

like his brother mike. he’s so cool.

jakey’s gonna be just like his dad, only a lot better looking.

as things were winding down jake spotted something else he had “misplaced.” his gold medal.

as i was explaining that i wasn’t sure how it got around my neck jake bypassed the pleasantries all together and went straight to fisticuffs.

that was where jake made A HUGE TINY MISTAKE.

our ohana. nice eyeball mike.

partners in crime, rain and jake.

if you’d like to see more from the party, here’s a slideshow for ya. it’s the best day ever!


happy birthday jakey!!! we love love love you very much! we had a great time spending your… er ummm…hope you got some cool stuff like a brand new light sabre! see you soon little man!
