Actually, he got two. A Bubble Eye Gold fish and some other type of gold fish. He named the Bubble Eye one "Monster" and the other one "Crazy Scientist."
He loves his fish. Sadly, he thinks of them as his only friend. I hope that one day he can have a real friend that won't go belly-up on him.
Later, he decorated his cake. We have a tradition where I will make a regular cake (they usually help) and then I let the birthday boy/girl decorate it any way that they choose. This means I need to literally walk away and just let them have their fun otherwise I would probably freak out over how much icing they're dumping on and sprinkles. I think next time I will measure out the sugar sprinkles though; it was waaaay too much. No cake should be crunchy.
|That cake still makes me gag.|
Unfortunately, I didn't bring my camera. I wish I had because the pet store gave Luke a free alligator floatie for his birthday and it's the first time the kids have used any sort of floatation device in the water. It seems these days that there's hardly a beach out there that will let you use them. Luckily, no one is ever at this beach (not even a lifeguard) so the kids got to use the alligator floatie. They had a lot of fun! At first, they had no idea what to do with it and when I told them they could ride on it, they were astounded that it could float with them on it! Ah, these technological-age babies....
Oh, I also forgot to add that at daily mass, the priest gave Luke a birthday blessing. That was special!
So that was Luke's birthday and he has big one coming up in a two weeks to look forward to. In the meantime, we are getting ready for tomorrow...
...when the floor will finally be installed!
|The living room|
|The dining room with all our stuff in it|
Tomorrow we'll be hanging out with my mom for the most part, avoiding the house while the floor is being installed. Can't wait to get settled (again) in our "new" house...
