Elliot on the morning of his 5th birthday

After our visit to Miniature Wonderland in Germany, Elliot has been getting more into LEGO so that was one of his big requests for his birthday this year.  Many of the LEGO City kits are recommended for kids aged 5-12 so Elliot was very excited because, even though he could build them when he was 4, knowing he was 5 years old gave him some added confidence to the task.  He is also a very big helper in the yard whenever Shawn or I am out there so we got him a toy wheelbarrow, shovel, and lawnmower.  We rounded off the morning with one of Elliots favourites, a pancake breakfast.
