Wow…what a week it’s been! We had Xavier’s birthday; his baseball Opening Day Carnival (our division was in charge of the cake walk); I catered a small dinner; and we went to Legoland! Whew!!! No pics of food because I didn't cook anything all that exciting (besides the catered party), but here is a small view of our busy but totally fun week! :)
His birthday movie party was a blast! The kids had so much fun meeting outside of school for Wreck It Ralph. I was quite impressed on how well 10 5-year-olds behave at a movie (maybe it was the incentive of a bag filled with M&Ms, popcorn, and cake pops). ;-) Legoland was spectacular for our little man! When we first arrived he just kept saying, “I can’t believe we are actually in the
!” He loved everything about it…from The Dragon
rollercoaster to the 4D Chima movie!
There weren’t a whole lot of people there because it had been storming
the day before, so our longest line was 20 minutes! It all worked out great, and X-man had a
fabulous 5th birthday! Our baseball league's Opening Day Carnival was also a great time. As you see below, Xavier won us a Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake. He was so very proud! :) Land
