It was birthday time again. It seems they just keep coming faster and faster. His first celebration choice was to go to Pizza Hut. I can't tell you the last time we went there for a sit down meal. But, it was birthday boy's choice after all. The waitress even gave him a serving of apple pie pockets and the whole restaurant sang Happy Birthday to him. He was embarrassed ha!
The apple pie things were quite good. Of course, Caleb looked at them like they were poison, but John and I had one since they went to all the trouble to give them to us. I wouldn't want to have them around every day.....warm apple, cinnamon and sugar....ummm, yeah, pretty good stuff.
The day after his birthday he took a few church friends to the movies. We fully intended to do a second group of kids that were the family bunch as soon as we had them with us, but by the time they came to be at our house, they had all already seen the movie. So, that idea didn't work. He ended up having a 2 night sleepover with Hudson, Adi, & Sami.....so I'm guessing that more than made up for not being able to do the movies.
After the movie we were off to Popeyes. Caleb's favorite restaurant. One of the workers walked up and gave all the kids the small kid's meal prize, even though they didn't order kids meals. (In hind sight, that would have been the way to go.....but everyone seemed so hungry. LOL) They made all these cute things with the wacky sticks they received.
We didn't even ask this year, we just took our own cupcakes in there. Last year, DQ wouldn't let me bring our own baked goods. So, we chose a different place this year. No one said a word and they were all quite nice about us invading the two middle tables of the restaurant.
All in all I think he had a really good birthday!
Can't believe my youngest is 9! God is so good!
