Kashus is a daddy's boy. He love's to hang out with his daddy every second he gets. And Dean in return, loves to take Kash with him to run his errands, go to Scouts, or just spend father and son time together. From the moment he started becoming remotely interested in toys he loved playing with balls. His first word was ball. As a baby he'd actually sit and watch basketball games (the ENTIRE game), even on TV. Of course this couldn't make daddy any prouder to have him as a son. He began throwing balls soon after he started walking and had a natural athleticism about him. He could shoot baskets on his toy hoop before he was 18 months from afar. He still LOVES pretty much every sport out there and is so excited to start playing on a team. I love him so much and am so proud of the little man he's become!
For Kashus's third birthday we decided we wanted to do something special for him since we've done some pretty big parties for Aya. At the same time I didn't really want to have to do tons of planning or have to put too much effort into the party. So we decided that Gunstock Ranch would be the perfect place! We had pony rides, a mini petting zoo, and a pool party. Not much planning needed and the activities for the kids were already planned:)
As it turned out Kash's little friend Sophie from preschool was planning a party that same weekend so we decided to join efforts and have the party together. Her birthday was only 2 days before Kash's so it was perfect. We decided on a Toy Story theme since it seemed the most neutral for a boy/girl party. There were over 45 kids there and I would say the party was an overall success! Well...I actually had food poisoning from something I ate the night before so I was feeling horrible that day but besides that, it was an overall fun day for Kash and it's a day he will always remember!
Here is the cute flyer that Lisa (Sophi's mom) made for the party.
I made these little cupcakes to go with the cake too. Too bad most of them ended up being ruined on the way to the party. I won't mention by whom. Oh well, luckily I got a few pics of them before that happened!

Thanks to uncle Marky, I was able to relax outside the pool area and hang out with Justus.
