Dominic's birthday started with the annual sign up on the garage...we've been putting this sign up since his 1st birthday. (I have since carried on the tradition with the other kids as well.) As we left the house in the morning I closed the garage door, revealing the sign. These days it takes a lot to make his face light up...however...this did the trick! I think he had forgotten about it.
Off for donuts we went!...at 7am!
I didn't see him again until dinner time. We met the whole family at Dominic's favorite restaurant...Tahoe Joe's. (I was very excited when Connor told me that for HIS birthday dinner, he wants to go to McDonald's...much more within my budget!)
This is Dom explaining to us what happens to our arteries when we eat whipped cream:)
Everyone came back to our house after dinner for dessert and presents.
He doesn't quite fit on my lap anymore...but we still continue to try!
Emma Kate didn't make it late into the evening but Connor was a trooper.
Dominic requested that I make Grandma Heiden's lemon bar recipe for dessert.
(Yes...I'll put candles in whatever...they are a must. No matter how old you are.)
