catching up

Someone has had a busy month.

Multiple birthday parties, 4 lost teeth, a program, soccer, and lots of bike riding and outdoor play have filled our time.

We took him to Rainforest Cafe at the MOA for his birthday and he had a molten lava birthday cake. Now.... they do advertise free birthday desserts at Rainforest but what they don't tell you is that the free dessert is a tiny little cupcake (which in most circumstances would be totally adequate.) However it seemed that the day we were there every parent in the place upgraded their childs treat to the big, sparkling lava cake with all the fanfare and so we decided to jump on the "bigger is better" bandwagon. We didn't share that info with Aidan though, he thought all he was going to be getting was the little free cupcake - and he was quite gracious about it as well. So you can imagine his surprise when the staff came out with the giant dessert. (let me rephrase that. The expensive giant dessert) Funny thing is, none of us are big chocolate fans so we pretty much just paid for some sparklers and ice cream.

I would say it was well worth the cost though. Aidan really was a trooper when we explained the cupcake was free so that would be our desert of choice. What a kid! He is sitting on the couch beside me as I write this so pardon me while I give him a big squeeze.
