T's B-day Recap

DH always cooks breakfast for the kids on their birthdays, and they get to pick whatever they want. T chose eggs, bacon, sausage, and toast. It was nice to eat breakfast as a family, that doesn't always happen around here.

T wanted his cake to look like pancakes, so here is my attempt:
We went to Tucano's for dinner which was so yummy! It is an all-you-can-eat brazillian bbq. The meat there is fab. I signed up for the b-day club one time when I went there and they sent me a coupon in the mail for a free meal during the month of my birthday. All kids under the age of 7 eat free, which meant we only had to pay for DH and T. What a deal!! The kids all behaved so nice, which is usually a rare thing for when we go out to eat. And, they all ate a ton!! We had a great time.

When we got home it was time for presents. We got him some How-to-draw books and some other art supplies. He's really shown an interest in drawing lately and we wanted to help him along the way. Right now he loves to draw trucks and cars, and he's quite good at it. He was very excited to get these and has already put them to good use. Then, we sang Happy Birthday and it was time to eat cake. Everyone only had a few bites because we were all so stuffed from dinner.
All in all I think he had a very nice birthday. His party with his friends will be some time this week. Last week was so crazy that we couldn't fit it in. So, we'll have more party reports later on this week!
