He got the basketball goal he asked for. He and Chris love playing in the evenings before bed.
He got to open presents from the family at breakfast on his birthday, since we had a full day planned. He was especially excited to try out his new skateboard!
After presents, we headed out to Family Fun Day at our church – St Bernardine in Baltimore. He had a blast, enjoying some cotton candy, baseball games, bubbles and more with the other kids.
We meet up with Aunt Rachel and Uncle Jason that night for dinner in D.C. Isaac requested Fogo de Chao for his birthday, so we made it a joint celebration and celebrated Mommy’s birthday as well. Fogo is always a treat!
We had his party a couple weeks later, trying to hold out for warmer, dryer weather since we had an unseasonably warm and wet May. We had a great time celebrating with our friends!
