Chad's parents came to watch the kids while we were in Paris, & they left on Father's Day, which was a few days before Asher's birthday. Since we were planning on having a small celebration with them, we got an ice cream cake from Dairy Queen & had been eating it for the past few days. So, by the time Asher's birthday rolled around, there wasn't much left of the cake which is why there is no cake in the photos!
It's tradition in our family that the person having a birthday gets to pick which restaurant they want to go to for dinner, Asher got to double up on this since we had the early celebration with Grandpa & Grandma. He picked the Dublin Crossing Pub since he knows he can walk right up to the bar to ask for refills of his lemonade, to eat with Grandpa & Grandma. Then on his birthday we let him pick again, & he chose East Side Marios. I checked to see where the nearest one was, & it's in Cranbrook (800 kms away), so we opted not to go there. His next choice was Boston Pizza. Before we left for dinner, he opened his gifts!
Let the games begin!
Every piece of tissue paper must be checked to see if there's something hiding amongst the folds!
"You have combined 3 things I love! Harry Potter, Lego, & Nintendo!"
I was glad to see that he was so excited about this book. It's the 4th in the series, & I ordered it before Christmas. It finally came about 3 weeks before his birthday!
Book 4 "Tales of a Sixth Grade Muppet"
Another book by David Walliams. The kids love these books!
You really can't go wrong with Lego can you?
Happy Birthday to my 10 year old!
