Andrew’s birthday usually falls during spring break. This year, we were visiting my mother and sister on his actual birthday. The cool thing about that is that Andrew’s first cousin, Emily (my sister’s youngest daughter), shares the same birthday….just four years apart. Spending their birthday together was special so we celebrated all day long.
First, we went to the local library for story and craft time. After eating a light lunch, we traveled 30 miles south to Tallahassee to enjoy three hours at Zoinks (think Monkey Joe’s). There, they jumped on all the inflatables, played air hockey, and threw some skee ball. After a VERY short rest, we ate dinner, cake, and ice cream and then opened gifts.
The only downside to the day was that Dad wasn’t able to join us and Abigail wasn’t feeling well. She and Gami stayed home while we played, but we sure did miss them all!
Happy 5th birthday, Andrew!
