A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Jack’s birthday. We like to take the boys out, ideally by themselves, for a special birthday lunch and a trip to the lego store. (Used to be Build a Bear but they have all but evaporated in our area!)
When we took Jack out this year we even managed to do his birthday pictures first. Let me tell you that this guy was excited! His energy was infectious but he was on fire! We got pictures done in 10 minutes and then took off for the mall. Lunch at McDonald’s lasted about 15 minutes only because we kept asking him questions while he was eating to slow him down. Then we went to the Lego store to pick his birthday present and that took about 20 minutes. Holy cow that kid attacks his day! It was such a whirlwind that we needed a nap when we were done!
Since all of the kids are growing up and getting busy I thought we were going to have to drop this lunch date tradition. I’m so glad we were still able to make it work. I think we should schedule Henry’s date in July just to make sure we can keep it going!
Here are my favorites of Jack…
