He had a Ben 10 themed birthday party. It is his favorite show to watch and favorite toys to play with. All he asked for his birthday was Ben 10 aliens which is really a small request. Rick's Bakery did an amazing job drawing the Ben 10 watch on the cake. Picking up the cake was the highlight of Drew's Friday afternoon. I'm pretty sure he showed my parents and nieces 10 times Friday night when they got here....as if it was changing in the refrigerator.
and finally realized they WERE NOT going out! Notice Alex finally started helping him blow.
Thanks Auntie, Heath, Hannah & Jenna...he LOVES his scooter!
For lunch we had Red Robin. I told our waitress it was Drew's birthday (knowing he probably would not like the embarrassment of them singing to him - whoops). Initially he wasn't happy but he warmed up at the end.
He is not a real big ice cream eater so Jenna was happy to eat it for him.
It was such a fun weekend. I was so glad my parents and nieces were able to come for the weekend. Thank you friends & family for making it so special for Drew!
On his birthday (Monday) he received a card in the mail from my Granny Welch. He always hopes there is something in the mail for him when we check the mailbox. Even better...there was a card with money for him. Usually we put it in his piggy bank but there was another Ben 10 Alien he was wanting so he was so excited to go pick it out at Wal-Mart. He thought it was really cool too that he had his own money to give the cashier. He picked out 2 toys and put the rest in his piggy bank.
My next task is to print a group picture from the party and mail thank you notes. Some of my friends are so quick at that and I am terrible. I wish I could remember things like that quicker than weeks after the event.
