Pretty girl went to bed early tonight and Booger is watching Transformers, so I thought this was a great time to update everyone on how his birthday went. I'm only about a month and a half late. Oops!
This year Booger was lucky enough to have his birthday on a holiday weekend, he ended up celebrating his birthday all weekend long.
Saturday my mom took him to Chick Fil A for lunch and to play in their play area. He then went back to her house and swam in the pool. He loved that he got all of Grandma's attention on him. She then had cake for him after swimming.
On Sunday May 25th we celebrated Booger's 5th birthday with M's side of the family. His birthday wasn't until the 26th, but I wanted him to have a day at home to play with his new toys. He really loved having family over and having all of the attention on him.
Booger was set on having an "Autobot" cake. Thankfully Publix came through and had one. Whew! I think it turned out pretty cute. :)
We kept it low key and had only family over. I think that's the best way right now. When he gets into elementary school we will worry about having a friend birthday party in addition to our family party. Growing up we always celebrated with family on my actual birthday and then I would have my friend birthday either the weekend before or after, depending on our schedule. I would like to continue that for both of our kids if we can.
Booger was again spoiled for his birthday. He received a few new Transformers (thankfully these ones are easier for him to transform, so I don't have to do the work), a few Despicable Me toys and the highlight was his new Transformers fishing pole and tackle box. He was VERY excited for the fishing pole. Now him and daddy can go fishing at Great-Grandma and Great-Grandpa's house.
