James had a few requests for his actual birthday.
It landed on a Monday so he asked if we could skip school that day. Sure, no problem. He also wanted us to have a Lego building competition where he could pick the theme and tell us what to build. The theme was the card game Dominion – Awesome! Then he wanted to eat Dad’s homemade pizza and watch Harry Potter. Absolutely! So, that is what we did. We had a nice day, went to the park, played Lego, and then had dinner and a movie.
Our plan had been to cross Lake Okeechobee with our friends, but our plans changed because our boat couldn’t get tipped to get under a bridge. The boys were pretty devastated, so we decided to just drive up to where our friends were staying and have a sleepover, hang out, open presents and have cake.
James delayed his actual birthday party in order for us to celebrate with our friends from Celebration, Wayne and Gaye. We had a great couple of days with them, James and Matthew got to watch movies and have a sleepover on their boat and it was nice to see our friends again.
