Pace had his (real) birthday last Thursday on May 19 and it’s been a crazy, fun-filled weekend since then.
(Speaking of “crazy, fun-filled weekends”, Shea and I live in dread of having a kid who has his birthday on May long weekend when he gets older!) 😉
On his actual birthday, we had a nice lunch with a small cake he’d picked out himself and gifts from the immediate family (we did it at lunch because dad was working the 1-9pm shift at the library.)
Friday, Pace, mom and aunt Sandi got ready for his big party on Saturday – getting cupcakes ready, putting together goodie bags and various other things we’d need for the party.
Then on Saturday, we held a party for all his friends at the parkour gym Pace attends. Today, he went to *another* friend’s birthday just down the block then we picked him up early so he could go to the mall and buy a couple gifts with his birthday money including a skateboard and a pogo stick!
