ethan's 6th birthday

We celebrated our favorite 6 year old cousin, Ethan, on Sunday at Metroplex Gymnastics.  Pearson ADORES his big cousin.  In a few year they are going to feel like they are practically the same age since they are only 18 months apart, but for now, Pearson looks up to him and wants to do anything Ethan does and be just like him.  
Ethan loves all super heros.  His party was even a Spiderman party.  Pearson hasn't really gotten into super heroes yet, but he saw this shirt at Target and insisted we buy one for him and Ethan because he knew Ethan loves Captain America.  Pearson's is still too big for him but he insisted that he wear it to the party.  When we left the party, Pearson also informed me that he is going to like Spiderman when he turn 6! So sweet! He wants to be just like Ethan!!
 The last time we were at Metroplex, Nash wasn't even walking so he didn't really even play.  He was all over the place this time.  I think his favorite part was the trampolines.  He loved bouncing around!  Sweet Ellie followed him wherever he went! Such a good big cousin!!
Birthday parties where kids can run around and burn a ton of energy are the best!!
I just love watching Pearson explore and be a kid!!
Someone had to always be right by Nash's side because he would have tried to do everything all by himself.  He has no fear!
When it was time to do the zipline, Pearson hopped in line like he was going to go.  I was getting a little nervous because it's a pretty long ways until they get to the pit where they can release.  When it was finally his turn, he chickened out and just went down the slide.  I've never been more proud of my little scaredy-cat!!
While all the kids where on the hipline, Matt and Nash watched them all go across.  Nash was mesmerized by it!
I'm so glad we were able to drive in for such a fun party.  
Pearson had been looking forward to this party for weeks, and it definitely didn't disappoint.  
Happy 6th Birthday Ethan! We love you!!
