Somebody’s 7 May 12, 2006

Posted by Joe in Uncategorized.

Benjamin has been counting the days for a couple of weeks now and finally it came yesterday- his birthday. He was serenaded by several relatives and got a day out of school- it was shaping up to be a pretty good day even before he opened his presents.

At lunch, Mommy let Benjamin and Rachel have pizza Lunchables, complete with “dessert pizza” while having a carpet picnic.

For supper, we had Benjamin’s favorite meal- Build Your Dinner. The basic idea is that you get anything that you can stick a toothpick into and use your imagination to construct something and then eat it. The kids chose from hard-boiled eggs, pickles, mini-tomatoes, carrots, squares of cheese, thick banana slices, and so on. Benjamin created a dinosaur. Rachel made a “rock star” but ate it before I got a picture. Here she is holding a set of barbells.

Benjamin got phone calls from LOTS of people wishing him a happy birthday, many cards, and some really fun presents. They broke out the water toys as soon as the sun was shining! Thanks to everyone who made it a great day for him.
