Gavin's Birthday

Gavin was so excited for his birthday to come this year. He's been talking about all of the little details of the day, including when he opened his presents, what he wanted for breakfast, and what he wanted me to bring in for his school treat for weeks. He woke up super early (the time change didn't help either) and was ready to celebrate. He had pancakes with Reese's Pieces smiley faces, complete with the green crown he requested. He got to buy school lunch (which is a bit of a treat at our house) and I brought in cake pops during snack time. After school he didn't want to do any homework, but we did get some reading in and then when daddy got home we went to dinner at Red Robin and then came home for his "colorful cake." Gavin loves to color and at first he wanted a crayon cake, but luckily I was able to persuade him to let me do something a bit easier! He opened his gifts which included a Green Lantern playset and costume. He loves Green Lantern even though he hasn't even seen the movie, so we thought it appropriate to rent the movie and watch it (on our clearplay) on his birthday. The early morning caught up with our little green hero and we had to save the rest of the movie for later, he was pooped. I think he would agree that it was a super fun day and he is so happy to be 6!
