Aidan's actual birthday was Monday, February 15th. He doesn't have school this week since it's halfterm break so we got to have a nice leisurely morning. We got up and he opened presents - he got lots due to the extreme generosity of all of our family members! We had a nice breakfast of French Toast before Brendan had to go to work. I thought it would be fun to go bowling at the American base. We invited Morgan - the little boy with whom Aidan shared his party - and his mom and little sister. We all squished in our car and drove all the way out there. We arrived about 20 minutes before it opened - who would think it would open at 11? We finally got in and started to bowl only to have the power go out about 20 minutes in! The boys thought it was pretty cool and the girls were a little freaked out by the dark! Aoife - of course - could have cared less and was just as happy in the dark as in the light! So we decided that we would all drive back to our village and go to the local pub for lunch. It was fun but the kids were a little rambunctious from being trapped in the car! That evening for dinner Aidan wanted to have his friend, Florence, who is 10, over for dinner. It is really funny that the two of them get along as well as they do. They really enjoy being around each other and make me a believer in arranged marriages!! :) So Florence had dinner with us. We had Aidan's favorite - hotdogs and hamburgers - yum! Then we had chocolate cake for dessert - that's 4 cakes for the weekend if you're counting!
I can't believe my little boy is 5! I couldn't ask for a nicer, happier little boy!
