We celebrated Zachary's birthday at Disney World but of course we let him pick out where he wanted to go for dinner tonight, his actual birthday. He thought about it for days and finally decided he wanted to go to Cracker Barrel. Both he and Grace love Cracker Barrel! He ate two pancakes with bacon and loved it all! He didn't have any cake or birthday dessert because he was too full. He's not a big dessert eater anyway so we told him that he has an IOU for a birthday dessert whenever he wanted it.
After dinner, we came home and he opened his birthday presents. We continued the Star Wars theme and he got tons of Lego Star Wars including Darth Vader's ship that he got from Lola. He had picked out a light saber at Disney World that he got from Mimi and he will get his presents from Nana & Paw and Kerry when we go home to visit in July. He also got a big box of Star Wars goodies from someone that Dave works with. She loves Star Wars and decided it was time to downsize some of her collection and she passed it on to Zach. He loved it all!
Carly spent the night with Grace tonight. They went shopping earlier today with their girl scout troop and both bought these cute glasses that they have worn all day long!
Zachary, we hope you had a fabulous birthday! Neither Dave nor I can believe that our baby boy is now six years old. Where has the time gone? You have gotten so tall and changed so much over the past year and have lost your "babyness" and have become such a big, independent boy. You did great in kindergarten and we are both so pleased with how well you are reading. Happy Birthday Zachary!
I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
As long as I'm living,
My baby you'll be.
