We have spent a few days celebrating Blake's birthday. Thursday Blake and I had dental appointments. When we got back the girls had decorated the house for his birthday and made dinner.
We opened presents quickly before Cora took off for the fire department.
He was quite excited to get all those Eatmore bars.
Friday was his actual birthday. He wanted to make his own dinner. He made BBQ chicken pizza and fruit. We were in a bit of a rush to make it to Shakespeare in the park. (That is why we opened presents Thursday.)
He did a good job. He had requested a chocolate cake for his birthday. I didn't have any candles so we lite a few matches and he blew quick.
Shakespeare in the Park was again a delight. Cannon, Nicole, Kailey and Levi came this year. They found some very long licorice and shared it with us.
Today we picked up some of his friends and went to the new water slides at the pool. They had a really fun time. It was so blazingly hot, I thought I was going to melt. The line up for the slide was long, but they didn't mind.
After swimming we grabbed a frosty at Wendy's.
He said he has had a great birthday and was excited to do something this year. He seems to have gotten gipped in the birthday party situation. Last year we were in the middle of a family reunion and the two years before that we were camping. So we promised him to be at home with nothing else but him this year. He loved it. Happy 11th Birthday Blake!
