Last Thursday, was Roen's actual birthday. Micah always takes work off and we try to make their day extra special. However, with them being in school, this isn't always possible anymore. Roen had school Thursday morning and I considered letting him miss. But, when I asked him about it, he said "but they were going to sing happy birthday to me and I'll miss it"! Well, we couldn't miss that!
Before dropping Remi off at school, we let Roen open his presents from us and Remi. We took Remi to Cabelas and he picked out Roen's gift all by himself. He was very excited to see what Roen thought of his gift!
Roen loved his bug vacuum, bug jar, wooden yo-yo and explorer watch from his big brother!
Of course, I made cinnimon rolls and we sang Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boy...
After we dropped Remi off at school, we ran to Tom Thumb, got some baseball cupcakes and juice to share with his friends at snacktime. Roen was so excited!
After school, Micah and I picked Roen up and took him to lunch- his choice... Los Mariachis. This boy loves him some chips and hot sauce! And yes, he wore his birthday crown...
After lunch, we took Roen to the zoo and he was loving having Mommy and Daddy all to himself. We let him pick out a prize at the gift shop and he chose a cute little turtle- he named him Turdy. What a perfect day celebrating my baby turning 5!
