Otis turned five this past weekend. We celebrated with a party and his friends – organizing a gold rush (one of his favorite shows) mining operation for the kids. The Gold Rush was complete with a makeshift panning station with colanders, sluice boxes and various rocks and gems. It was wild and fun for all. It’s sad that his curls are now gone and he doesn’t pronounce marshmallows the way he used to “smashmellows” but this five year old is growing up to be a pretty awesome boy.
