Happy 10th Birthday to Alex!!

Yesterday was a really fun filled day for Alex as we celebrated his 10th birthday together. He started out his morning with a home cooked breakfast of his favorite egg whites from dad, as always. From there we took off and made our first stop of the day, the batting cages and we watched Alex hit a few balls and have a good time.
Next on the list was lunch at Chuck E Cheese and boy is that pizza yummy!! Alex had 100 tokens to play and had a great time on all the games, of course he had to share some of his tokens with dad, as usual. I'm just content with watching and walking around taking pictures. At one point it was pretty funny though, Alex told me to stop taking pictures and he said, "Can't a kid have some privacy on a video game??" :)

Our next stop was Build A Bear in the mall. As luck would have it they were celebrating Bearamy's birthday this weekend and Alex had gotten a coupon in the mail for a free bear for his birthday...but after all the clothes and accessories...we still spent a bit of money but he had so much fun. His bear is a fishing bear and he bought pajamas and a sleeping bag for it, too.
And last but not least we went to Toys R Us and Alex picked out his gift which was a huge Lego set and he spent most of last night and this morning building it all and he finally finished it, pretty impressive stuff. The cake was buttercream which is his favorite ever since he went to a cupcake program at the library and got to taste it. Happy Birthday my little man, I love you.
