(boys whisper) – [Jared] Oh my goodness gracious. Happy birthday, Calvin. – Can I open them? – Not yet, ’cause guess what? – What? – [Jared] It’s 5:30 in the morning. So I need you guys to go back to bed just for a little bit longer, okay? – Okay. (boys chatting) – [Ellie] Good morning. Happy birthday Mr. Calvin. – Happy morning to you. (laughs) Good morning. Good morning to you. – I love you guys. I can’t put him down. There’s marbles everywhere. – I made this for Calvin
for a birthday present. – [Ellie] Can I see? Oh! You drew– – So, that’s Calvin
– Look at this. This is Jackson
– And that’s me. – [Ellie] You drew him. You and him with all your hearts in there. – Yeah. – And this Jackson.
– We love each other. – [Ellie] Calvin, that’s so cool. – Now I’m making Tommy one. – Did you know that it’s 5:30 a.m.? We’re up! – Hey there guys. Hey there guys. Here comes the shark. (laughs) – [Ellie] So “How Do
Dinosaurs Clean Their Rooms?” Cupcakes and a gift Do you know what that is, Jackson? – [Jackson] A yo-yo. (quirky, upbeat music) – You have to close your eyes
when we get in your bedroom. – [Jared] Oh, okay. Are you going to lead me? – Yeah. – Okay, I’ll close my eyes. – Don’t peak. Pull this now. – [Jared] Pull it? – Yeah. – [Jared] Is this one of your presents? – [Calvin] Yup. It’s a present. – Did you want me to undo this for you? Did you get it stuck
and that’s my surprise? You wanted me to fix it for you? Okay, I’ll do that. You’re sweet. Calvin, did you know that
today you’re four years old? – Yeah. – [Jared] You’re four years old! Can you believe that? – But I didn’t blow out my candles. – [Jared] Oh, is that when you turn four is when you blow out your candles? – Yeah. – [Jared] Oh! That’s pretty cool. How many candles are
you going to blow out? – Four. – Yeah!
– Wow! And then you’ll be four years old! High four! (laughs) – You look bigger. – You do look bigger! You look like such big boy today. And you’re graduating from preschool! Okay boys, let me just look at you. Two boys ready for preschool graduation. Wait a second! Where did you get this? That’s fine, it’s your birthday. It’s your birthday. Two boys ready for preschool
graduation looking so handsome. We still gotta work on getting your shoes on the right feet, don’t we? Hey, I’ll take it though. You guys are just handsome. And I just wanted to take a look at you. Because there was a time not too long ago where you guys were going to preschool for the very first time. Especially you, Mr. Calvin. It is your very, very
first day of school today. What are you most excited
about for school today? – Going to school. – Just going to school? (upbeat techno music) You guys excited? – Yeah! – [Jared] Good. I’m so happy. – Let’s go right now! – Did you have a good time at preschool? Good. I’m so glad. Can I take your one last picture? And then we’ll go to your
preschool graduation. The kids are at school and later today we have everyone and their dog coming over to our house for a party. So we’ve kinda rearranged some things, basically just taking away the ottoman. And I’m like, holy cow! It totally opens it up here. – To a dance floor. – [Jared] Yeah, to a dance floor. And then we got thinkin’, what if we brought out
the karaoke machine? – You’re fun. – [Jared] How fun would– – That’s why I married you. I’m lame, you’re fun. (laughs) – The kids would love it. It’s Boston’s birthday,
it’s Kate’s birthday, and it’s Calvin’s birthday
all today on the same day. And my dad’s birthday’s in two days, so I should probably figure
out something to get. Jackson and Calvin love more than anything playing, like, cops and robbers. When they’re downstairs running
around, that’s what they do. – [Ellie] Or outside. – Yeah. One of them is the cop,
one of them is the robber, and then they switch. I love the wrapping paper because we have the greatest detective
on here, who’s Batman. Did you know that he
is a detective, Ellie? So, we’re wrapping a couple presents that go along with that
because we may or may not have a very special visitor
coming to deliver this gift. – Oh! – That’s going to be annoying after like five minutes, but it’s okay. I don’t even care. The guest that we have, it
could go one of two ways. Either they’re terrified, or they’re going to freaking love it. It’s going to be polar
opposites either way. – You asked him if we
could film him, right? – [Jared] Yes, yeah he’s good. – Good, ’cause we wanted to
make sure we can film it. – Well, and you know, his
identity and, I’ve said too much. – [Ellie] Hey mister. Say ma-ma-ma-ma-ma. (baby babbles) Say mama. – [Jared] Yay Calvin! (dramatic upbeat music) ♪ Sunday, Monday, Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday ♪ ♪ Friday, Saturday ♪ ♪ Let’s start again ♪ (crowd chatters) ♪ Q-R-S ♪ ♪ T-U-V ♪ ♪ W-X ♪ – [Woman] Jackson Mecham (applauds)
– Woo! – [Woman] Calvin Mecham (applauds)
– Woo! (laughs) It’s his birthday. He can throw his papers however he wants. – [Ellie] Right? Can you tell Calvin’s not having it? – They are so cute. – [Ellie] You did so good! Were you nervous? – No. – [Ellie] You weren’t? (crowd chatters) – [Jared] Congratulations. – [Grandma] Congratulations. – [Calvin] Are you
gonna come to the party? – I am! I’m so excited (upbeat music) – Cheese. – [Jared] You want ketchup with cheese? – Jared is taking the
order for lunch right now. We are going to pick up
whatever Calvin wants, and go home and eat, which is McDonald’s. And I wanna show you guys from there preschool, their
memories, what they wrote down. I am really glad that
Calvin and Jackson were able to go to preschool together. They’ve been going for several months for two days a week for like three hours, and it’s just been really
good to have them go together. Jackson, you’ve been such
a good older brother, and you’ve helped Calvin
adjust really well, to being around other people
other than mom and dad. And I just, I really love
that they were together. So, their favorite colors were red, and Calvin’s was dark and light green. Their favorite jobs at
school is the soaper, and Calvin’s was the pointer. So Jackson, what is the soaper? – Soapers was, you get soap
and go sit to the table. – [Ellie] Calvin, what’s the pointer? – The sound and then the paper. – [Jared] And then you point
to the sounds on the paper? – Yup! – [Jared] Oh cool! – And the people say
what they’re pointing at. – Oh, is that where
you have like the mouse and it goes, “ee” and
you point to that one? – Yeah. – We’re making some
changes to our schedule. Calvin has requested that
Tommy, wherever he’s going, be awake during the present opening. So what we’re going to do, is
we’re going to sing to Calvin. – Don’t sing so loud. – Don’t sing so loud? We won’t sing so loud. We’re gonna sing happy birthday, and then you can open your
presents before we have lunch. Okay?
– Yeah. – [Jared] Does that sound good? Come up to the table. – We’ve got our four candles, plus two more for the heck of it. I think it’s really funny that
he asked us to sing quiet. So we will not sing very loud, okay? ♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ ♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ ♪ Happy birthday dear Calvin ♪ ♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ Make a wish! Good job! (claps)
Yay Calvin! – Look at the candles! – [Jared] We can eat ’em right now, we can open presents,
or we can have lunch. What would you like to do, Calvin? – Open presents. – [Jared] Open presents? Okay. – That’s how tall you
were when you were three. This is how tall you are when you’re four! – [Jared] You grew up so much! Let the festivities begin! – [Ellie] Did you know what it is? – [Jared] What do you think? Next! – Awesome. – [Jared] What?! – It’s a Batman Lego play set! – [Jared] It’s a police one. – [Calvin] This is where they work – [Jared] That’s right! – [Jackson] Open it, Calvin. – [Calvin] And this is the jail. – [Jared] Uh-huh. – When we were on our
vacation last week in Florida, Calvin, was not wanting to
put his head under water. Like, we kind of wanna get him more comfortable at taking his life jacket off, and working with him on swimming. And by the end of the
week, he was so comfortable putting his head under the water because he had a mask like this, and so Calvin, you have
you’re very own flippers. And this mask. – And a snorkel. – And a snorkel. So, Jared and I plan on having Calvin do a few late nights where it’s just him that gets to stay up and we can work with him in the hot tub at night. (cheerful acoustic guitar music) – It’s a toothbrush and a
toothbrush and toothpaste. It’s a mug for hot cocoa! There’s a sword, too! – All right, while we’re building this, Jackson, what is your favorite
thing about Mr. Calvin? – Play cops and robbers. – I love your determination. – If you see something that you want, you do whatever you can. (laughs) – I love Calvin’s personality. We were going around the
grocery store yesterday, and he was so happy and
content just looking at all the toys. Not once was he just like, “I want this one!” Like, he just was happy to look at it, and I was like, “‘Kay, let’s go.” He’s like, “Okay!” Like, he was good that way but he’s also extremely picky some ways. Like, if he wants to hold
a certain toy in the car, we’re not leaving the driveway until we can find that
toy and he can hold it. Like, he knows what he wants
and he’s very particular. And I just love, I love Calvin. And I love that he has
Jackson so close in age, ’cause they really are
the best of friends. ‘Kay! Let’s finish building this and then the kids can
finally play (laughs). – We are getting a police department to take shape and form. – [Ellie] So cool! Someone’s here. – [Jared] We gotta put
the security cameras in. We can do these– (doorbell rings) They can answer it. – [Ellie] Let Calvin answer. – [Officer] Good morning. – [Jared] Oh my goodness gracious! – [Officer] I’m from the sheriff’s office and I’m here to speak with Calvin. How are you? – [Calvin] Good. – Good. I heard it’s a special day for you. What’s today? – [Calvin] My birthday. – Your birthday? How old are you? – [Calvin] Four. – Four years old? I think these are for you. – [Jared] Oh my gosh! What do you say? – [Ellie] Say thank you! – Thanks. – [Ellie] Holy cow! (laughs) – Good to see you.
– Yeah. – [Ellie] That’s a real cop! – [Jared] This is a real police officer! Calvin!
– What’s you name? – Jackson. – Jackson?
– Come here bud! – Give me a handshake there. – [Ellie] Whoa. – Ow, man. You’re strong. – [Jared] Oh my goodness. – [Officer] We’re gonna
put some handcuffs on ’em and shackles on their feet. And then we tie the
chain around the waist, so they’re walking like this. – [Jared] Oh my goodness! – [Officer] We stick ’em in there and take them to the court to see the judge. – [Jackson] Is that where the bad guys go? – [Jared] Yup. That’s where the bad guys go. – [Officer] I cleaned it
today, so it’s all clean. (laughs) – Go sit in there! What do you think, bud? – Yeah. – Is it pretty cozy? – Yeah. – Yeah? Would you like to take a
long road trip in here? – No! – [Jackson] They’re not
going to take us to jail. – No, they’re not going
to take us to jail. Unless you do something really bad, ‘kay? What do you think buddy? You like it? So there’s even more seating back here. Wow. Here’s the question. Do you guys wanna turn on the siren? – No. – What if we just do it really quick? – No! Don’t turn on the siren! – You guys go inside. I’m gonna turn on the siren. Okay, are you ready boys? (siren screeches) What’d you think? Was that loud? – No. – [Jared] No it wasn’t? Do you wanna try now? – [Jared] No, you don’t want to try? That’s okay. You wanna try? (siren screeches) What do you think? Do you wanna try it, Cal? (siren screeches) Good job! – You guys are big helpers. – Yeah. – You can be an honorary junior deputy. – [Jared] Whoa! – [Ellie] Jackson, When else do we get those? – When we get pulled over. (laughs)
– Yup! When we get pulled over! Calvin, What did you think of him? – He was awesome. – He was awesome. He was awesome. Do you want to open up
your other presents? – Yeah. – [Jared] This is what the
police officer brought. No way! – [Jackson] Oh. Oh dude! Open it! (laughs) – [Ellie] Oh dude! – Okay. Try it. – Okay. – It’s a police thing! Dad, look. No way! – What? A police costume. – Let me get it open. – It has a zipper.
– Oh, a zipper. – [Ellie] What?! (plastic crinkling) – Open it! Calvin, wear it. – [Jared] Whoa! I think we’ve got a real police officer. – [Ellie] You look so handsome. – [Jared] Oh, wait. – Here’s your handcuffs! – I think there is one thing more. (whistles) – [Jared] Are you ready for this? – Yeah. (sirens beeps) Stop, a police. (laughs) – ‘Kay, I wanna try. (laughs) – [Jared] Rips it off his neck. – Stop right there! (horn blares) – [Ellie] How Tommy’s
asleep still, I don’t know. – I have no idea. It’s not going to be
very much longer though. – Stop there! I’m the police! – What else does he say?
– Stop! Stop! Hello amigos. I’m the police amigos. (laughs) – [Ellie] He’s been learning Spanish in– – In preschool.
– Preschool. It’s cute. Well, we’re gonna let them play and Jared and I are gonna
try and finish building this. (quirky music)
– Stop right there! (whistle) Stop right there! (yells) – I’m a robber! – [Ellie] All right. It’s never fun when your cop
car dies, so time to get out. You gotta change your new car? – Yeah. – [Ellie] What car are you going to get? – This car. This is my motorcycle. – [Ellie] The red motorcycle. That’s perfect. (yells) – And now for the moment that
we’ve all been expecting! It’s not a surprise whatsoever. We all know that this was coming. Every police officer needs a great way to get around and Calvin, happy birthday. This is your police vehicle. All right guys, I gotta
tell you the rules. Okay? – Don’t go fast. – I know. – [Jared] I guess Jackson
is giving all the rules. Do we ever ride without mommy and daddy? – No.
– No. – [Ellie] ‘Cause we’ll
have the key anyway. – [Jared] Yeah, we’ll have the key anyway and I’ve got a kill switch. ‘Kay? Do we always drive safe? – Yes.
– Yes. – [Jared] Do we always have fun? – Yes.
– Yes. – [Jared] And how do you use the brake? Whoop! Good job. You’re doing great! Should we start it up? ‘Kay, put it in. – [Calvin] And then twist it? – [Jared] Turn it. (engine roars) – [Jared] There we go! ‘Kay. Now give it a little gas. – [Ellie] Now you can go. Give it some gas. – [Jared] Oh! We killed it. But that’s actually one
of the cool features. You can’t just gun it. You have to ease into it. So it doesn’t throw you back. (engine roars) There you go.
– There you go, bud. – [Jared] Yeah buddy! Turn! Turn! Are you guys switching up for a second? – Yeah. – [Jared] Good job. Good job! Go for it, Cal! Good job! ‘Kay, slow down a little bit. (laughs) They are such a good team. Woo! Is that a good speed? You’re doing good, bud. You’re doing so good. I think we got that governor
right where it needs to be. Yeah Calvin! Woohoo! (yells) – That was awesome. – [Jared] Do you love it? – Yeah. – [Jared] Oh, happy birthday buddy. I’m so happy for you. – I want it again. – [Jared] Okay, go for it! – [Ellie] Start it! – [Jared] Penny, what
do you think of this? What do you think of
Calvin’s four wheeler? Huh? Is it pretty cool? – [Ellie] Now you guys are legit. – [Jared] Oh my gosh! – I fell. – You gonna be okay? – Yeah. – [Ellie] Be brave. – [Jackson] Are you going to be okay? – I need a bandaid. – We only have a few seconds to hurry and take their picture and
then they can run off and play. Mr. Calvin! How old are you? Four? How old are you, Mr. Boston? – Six. – [Ellie] Six? How old are you Miss Kate? – Seven. – [Ellie] Seven? This is beautiful. (yells) – Calvin, open your eyes and smile big! Show us those good teeth. Now that we’ve taken, like,
official photos of the cake, can we put, can we do
Calvin’s request please? And put blueberries and strawberries – and cookies on his cake?
– Yes please. Yes please. That’s what he wants on his cake. Do you remember what you
asked for on your cake? What do you want on the cake? – Strawberries and blueberries. – [Calvin] Those are cookies? – [Jared] Those are cookies. And what else do you see? – [Calvin] Strawberries and blueberries. – Yeah. You have everything you
ever wanted on your cake! Happy birthday, buddy! That’s a gift from me to you. I think this is the second most amount of people we’ve ever had in our house. We’ve got family from all sides over here. Here to celebrate three birthday parties. So, I think we should start
singin’ so we can start eatin’. Are we good? Are we clear? – [Man] Yep, we’re good. – [Jared] All right! Take it away! ♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ ♪ Happy birthday to you ♪ ♪ Happy birthday dear
