On Tuesday of this past week (Aug. 24th) we celebrated Jack’s *actual* birthday! (Since the party was before it, we had two count-downs going on in our house, one for the birthday party and one for his actual birthday day!) I let him pick out the entire day… he chose to wear swim trunks (although we did not go swimming) and his Star Wars shirt tucked-in mind you. He never wants to tuck a shirt in so I asked him what was up with that. He said, “Well, I want more of my trunks to show, so I gotta tuck the shirt in.” Aaahaaa– I said. Next we went to Dun kin Donuts for breakfast where he picked out two “adult” donuts. Meaning he didn’t have to eat the little munchkin donut holes that I usually make them get.
Jack wanted me to take a picture of his adult donuts!
I love how L & L are around him in this picture!
Next Jack wanted to go to Daddy’ school and get a birthday hug from Daddy. Which we did. Then his next idea was to go to Target- not to buy- but just to look and see if they had any new Lego’s out since that last time he had been in. But then he remember he had gotten a Toys R Us gift card at his party and that he could use it to actually purchase a Lego. So the plan changed to head to Toys R Us. He kept holding up his hand with 5 on it for all the pictures!
He did take time off to jump on his present from us!
Lily and Luke went with me to the store and picked out his present from each of them the night before. Lily got him a puzzle and Luke picked out a Lego watch, they both went home and against my instruction told him exactly what they had picked out for him! Maybe it will be a surprise next year?!?
