Happy 6th Birthday Mason

 My oldest and aspiring blackbelt leader turned 6 years old yesterday. Kid is getting so big. I remember everyone telling me when he was first born that the time was going to go by so quickly and IT DID! I don't think he is big enough to do some things sometimes, like the big water slides, but he is. It is time that I start accepting that my baby is now a big boy!

Mason just got his new belt. He is officially a white belt with Superior Martial Arts
For Mason's birthday we celebrated early by going to a local water park. Massanutten. THE BOYS HAD A BLAST! They were running all over the place all over the main melt down structure. Even Collin was going on the bigger kid slides. No one could tell him no. (he does need to learn to wait his turn though) Elyse and I chilled in the baby 1 ft deep pool and watched Mason and Collin have fun and daddy try and keep up! At the end of the day, Mace and I went down the super big kid body slides and tube slides. Again, me internally freaking out because he wasn't big enough. "what if he fell out!" But we both were screaming, laughing and I think it was one of the best times we have had! Makes us so excited for our upcoming Disney trip! 
For Mason's birthday we set up a slip n slide by H2OGO! Double Water Slide Bestway! It is perfect for our big hill out back and the boys had a BLAST! 

I found this Kit Kat and M&M cake design, months ago on Pinterest, and he wanted it! It is all he has been talking about for months. So to finally see it, in real life, he was excited. But...dude only took a couple bites and decided that "it has too much sugar!" All that work for 2 bites from the birthday boy. I am pretty happy though that he realized that it was a sugar overload which means I am doing something right with teaching him things in moderation! Elyse sure enjoyed it though! 

To make the cake it is pretty self explanatory. Make your favorite cake, whatever flavor. Mason decided on Chocolate cake, with confetti frosting between the layers and chocolate frosting. Once cake is frosted place the Kit Kats around the edge and fill with mini M&M's. I made 2 8x8 cakes, cut each in half to make a 4 layer cake. And it took 38 Kit Kat's to circle the cake and 1 bag of mini M&M's. Don't need big pieces of it as it is super rich! 

Happiest of happy birthdays to my big boy Mason! I am so excited to see what this next year brings for him!
