Alex had his first "friends" birthday party last Sunday. Eight kids made it complete.
There were water fights, trampoline time, and pinata time!
This guy loves Legos so his mother incorporated it into the lemon cake that he requested!
Birthday boy was the one that finally broke the pinata open.
Last year we started a new tradition, thanks to Deanna at My Loves, My life for the idea. We take each child birthday shopping for a toy in addition to the money they receive in their card.
After Alex read his certificate and thought about it he came and asked us, "does a toy mean something out of the electronic department?" I told him sure, what was he thinking? He replied "an I-Pod Touch". I gulped and said, "Alex there are limits". For those of you who don't know, an I-Pod Touch runs about $199.99 plus tax plus insurance or so he told me!
Wednesday we took him shopping. Of course he found more Legos.
Happy 8th birthday Alex!
