Michael had a great day today on his birthday. Yes, he went to school, but he really loves school, and he was glad for all the attention. He was telling EVERYONE within hearing distance (and some without) that it was his birthday. He was yelling it to the road workers down the street as we waited for the bus this morning.
This pose pretty much sums up his day- Sheer excitement.
A boatload of presents
A smile from ear to ear
A day to be king
And to get cool stuff
And even more cool stuff (including a helicopter shirt that I brought for him to open when I got him up this morning. He loved it, and he put it on right away).
Michael picked a strawberry cheesecake as his cake (thank you, Costco!), and he took in little mini red velvet cupcakes to his classmates.
He ate his cheesecake on his "You are special" plate, which gets pulled out on special occasions (when I remember). We had pizza for dinner (Michael's choice), but we ate dessert first. Because it's a birthday, that's why.
Michael also chose to spend some time at Funland where he proceeded to run and run and play and run some more. He was just so excited! Michael said this was his best birthday ever, and I'm sure it will be until next year! Happy birthday, precious boy!
