Woohoo! I can't believe it's Thursday (my Friday) already. This week flew by!
Saturday night we went to Logan's Roadhouse to celebrate Logan's birthday. Birthday Boy was very impressed with the barrels and buckets of peanuts everywhere. And you could throw the shells on the floor! He's been talking about the peanuts all week. A couple days ago he added "Too bad you can't throw all your food on the floor." Um, eeewwwwwww. That reminded me of when I worked at Pizza Hut we always hated it when the assistant manager's toddler son came in to eat because the kid threw an obscene amount of food on the floor. So much, that when he left we had to use a broom and dustpan, a hoky AND a vacuum to clean up after him. Back to intended topic, Logan loved "his" Roadhouse and even Kaylin (who normally picks at her restaurant meal and then comes home STARVING) ate almost everything on her plate.
The place was packed so we went to the parking lot to open his presents. He got two Fisher Price Trio castle building sets from Grandpa and Grandma and another from Andy. He also got a "moon in my room" nightlight from Kaylin. Logan was bouncing around, incredibly excited about his new toys. He wanted to go to Wal-Mart (within sight of the restaurant) to spend his birthday money from Great-Grandpa and Grandma Kaiser. He bought a Play Doh set and a Hot Wheels race track and was now begging to get home to play with all his new toys.
It was about 7:30pm. I quickly put together the Hot Wheels track while Gene hung the moon nightlight. (Man, those Hotwheels tracks are JUNK! They are so flimsy I don't think a kid could put one together without destroying it.) Logan went in circles, checking out the moon, playing with the race track, playing with Play Doh and building one of the castle sets. I was in bed sleeping by 8:30 but Logan stayed up playing until 9:20pm. That's pretty impressive for him :)
He got up early the next morning and played and played. The neighbor kids were over most of the day and Logan and Little Boy built another castle. When I got home from work we had the neighbor kids over and sang and had cake. He's been running into the house after school every evening and plopping on the floor to play with his new toys. It was a good 7th birthday!
