Last Wednesday was my oldest's birthday. He turned 7 years old. For his actual birthday, we went out to dinner with family, then headed back to the house to open presents and have cake. He got to pick where we went, and all of us enjoyed it very much.
In addition, he also got to decide what he wanted to do for his party. In years past, we've gone swimming at the rec center and to Chuck E. Cheese for food and fun. This year, he decided he wanted to have a sleepover. He had been to one before and had a blast, so he decided to have one of his own.
On Friday night, several of his friends came over. They had a great time playing in the back yard, eating pizza, opening gifts, eating cake, playing video games, and eventually falling asleep to Puss in Boots. It was a great birthday, and I can't wait for him to be able to do it again next year!
