Cael had a pretty great birthday yesterday. When we woke up I got him a birthday donut. I even put his candle in the donut & he got to blow it out again! Then we got ready & headed to pick up Tio Shoes for the day. We had his annual birthday meal at Hooters. We were actually disappointed with this trip. The waitress was okay but Tio Shoes found a hair in his sandwich, when they “sang” happy birthday to Cael they also sang to a 16 year old boy and they didn’t know the words. And they had the 16 year old spell out “Hooters”….with his butt. In one of the pictures you can see Cael giving them a strange look because he could tell they didn’t know what they were doing!
After that we went to Crown Center to the Sea Life Aquarium. Cael had a lot of fun! But he went through like a tornado! We went through so fast. I took lots of pictures & we had a scratch off ticket that we had to answer questions about their “fin facts”. We went to the touching pool & Cael touched a fish, a hermit crab & a starfish. I was proud of him for sticking his hands in the water! He told the hermit crab, “Flip over your house!” This morning we made hermit crabs at daycare & when I showed it to him he said, “Flip over your house!” He got a medal for completing the fin facts questions. We went to the store because that’s where the medal was and he started to have a melt down. His melt downs are not pleasant. I am not enjoying that part of his personality!
Then we went to Wal Mart so he could spend some money & gift cards he got. He bought a huge dragon & a wolf for his castle. After we got home Daddy had to leave to go to Emporia for work. It’s not easy watching him leave but we’re ok. It will all work out. Cael & I got “Old McDonald’s” for dinner & then played outside for a few minutes. Tonight we are going to go get a kitchen play set I found on craigslist. 🙂 It was a crazy busy but fun day!
