He spent most of the day yelling and screaming at ill-conceived injustices (his usual habit) while the rest of us tried to ignore it because "it's his birthday!"
While he took a long nap, #1, #2 and I wrapped his gifts and made his birthday cake. I went with the same theme I did last year: Matchbox Cars on the Cake. HUGE hit every time. :)
He was spoiled with a lot of gear, too:
- the cars and airplanes off of his cake
- a kickball
- sidewalk chalk
- a huge dinosaur (thanks to aunt bren, tam, and their hubbies)
- a bubble blower gun and one of those devices that throws the twirling disc in the air (you know what I'm talkin' about?) from Uncle D and Aunt S.
- Disk throwing guns
- army men
- the start-up Thomas the Train railroad set
- money from grandparents
Lucky guy! WOW!
The best part was seeing my brother. He leaves for Iraq on Wednesday.
I'll post pictures tonight or tomorrow...
