The birthday celebrations continue…
My guy requested that in lieu of a birthday party this year, we could have a day in which he planned the activities. We had made a list of all the stuff he loves to do, and then whittled it down to a reasonable few.
He chose to go downtown and ride the Dillo (a city bus that looks like a trolley – a boatload of boy enjoyment. And since you can get a full day pass for only $.50 it's a heck of a deal). He also wanted to visit the capital, have lunch at the playground on top of Whole Foods, visit Amy's ice cream, ride go carts and end with a "stay up late, brother sleepover in the schoolroom, movie night."
To say that it was a full day would be a serious understatement.
What my chicken-loving birthday boy does not know is that he's got one more BIG surprise coming his way today from his grandparents. They are taking him up to Texas A&M to get a personal tour of the Poultry Science facility (from a family friend who is going to school there in majoring in chickens 🙂 AND we'll go to a baseball game.
He's going to freak completely the heck out when he learns of our plans. I love that.

And now I'm off to dig up the sunscreen and Aggie shirts!
