It was bound to happen sooner or later…I completely forgot to take her monthly picture!
I took the picture on the right day but it was during vacation so it didn’t get posted.
And then I had to take some of Katie because she felt left out.
Pokémon all around! Katie is Pikachu and Owen is a Squirtle.
The first photo shoot!
Complete with braids (and a few curls!) by Gramma!
And the outtakes:
And some outtakes:
I wasn’t able to find a cool birthday shirt and forgot about buying a pin or anything, so I just printed out a sticker for him!
I let him open one present before school—a Lego birthday cake.
Of course, building began immediately.
He finished it before he left for school but it was really close and we didn’t have time to get a picture of him with it…so this is from Thursday morning:
When he got home we quick Skyped with Gramma Jean and Grandpa David (in Florida) and Grannie and Papa so everyone could sing Happy Birthday and he could open their presents. Then it was off to the Lego store for the monthly mini build which he completed in under three minutes:
Katie playing while Owen builds:
He bought a Minecraft Lego set that was on clearance with some of his birthday money.
And then it was off to Red Robin for dinner (his choice)…where he got surprised with a song and a sundae!
Then we stopped at Ikea to get Katie’s new nightlight and then home so Owen could Skype with Uncle Rob and open our gifts. He loved everything (a birthday Dr. Seuss book, a book of pirate mazes, a shooting/target set, and some perler beads and boards), but took the Minecraft book to bed with him.
I think he had a good day.
