Hard to believe my Busy Little B turned 8 this year! He was so excited about his birthday and was counting down the days for the last week LOL We tried to make the day all about his favorites so we started the day with homemade pancakes. After lunch we hit the road--he chose a local museum for his birthday outing. We've been there so many times, we can walk through really fast because they read all the plaques, done all of the activities, and studied it all multiple times. They still love going, though. They have favorites exhibits and will glance at the others as we walk by and then spend a good amount of time doing their favorite things. We always have to visit the old courtroom and get in the witness box:
And its a big open area so a little dancing or spinning usually happens ;)
The one we always spend the most time at is the gas station room--lots of old pumps and signs and cans and best of all a toy car they can "work" on :)
After the museum, we went to the Dollar Tree--its the only thing B asked for as a present LOL He loves that store so much. He had been saving for a while to go shopping there plus I bought him a Yo-kae figure (eight bucks at the regular store, a dollar at the dollar tree!) and Iz got him a Yo-kai plushie. Kid was so happy.
We made his very favorite foods for dinner--hot dogs, mac and cheese, fries, and broccoli. He wanted a salad, too, but didn't have room after all the other food :p We went to the park to play and there were a ton of kids there so he had a blast running around with them. No pictures of my oldest three because of the other kids but I did capture W's trip on the slide:
We ended the day with an ice cream cone at McDonalds
