Oliver's birthday in pictures

Waking up to balloons in his room

He seemed to like them
He wanted the purple one to take with him to school
After school, he got to eat what he wanted "mac and keese" at Victoria's 
 (I promise his cup got water in it)

blueberry muffin from Dunkin' Donuts

His gift from us was a big hit
It was such a big hit that we had a loud crying tantrum on the ride from home to daycare because in his own words "I want to play!" I am sure he won't remember his entire day but I hope to keep some of the things we did this year - balloons in his room for him to wake up to, dinner out with his choice of food, 1 big gift from us that he'll like and use (we knew the train table would be a hit because that's the reason we cannot take him to Wegman's anymore). No big party, no dozens of gifts that he starts to expect. Hope to keep it going, though we know kids and life has a way of changing the best laid plans.

But, beyond all that, that smile was worth the frustration that goes along with putting all kids' toys together :-P We love you, bugaboo!
