Oh, a fourth birthday was upon us on June 6th. And as our new tradition dictated, the celebrant woke up to special Birthday pancakes. Yes, those are number 4s and letter Bs. Just for a certain you-know-who.
The morning also started off with a really wet soccer game. It was the last of the season. And the wettest by far. Alex has improved this season by leaps and bounds. Both coaches commented on how far he'd come in his playing style. In this game, he made an assist and helped a team mate score a goal. Awesome work, dude!
But the day, was about the newly crowned Four Year Old in our lives. And while brother was off making perfect passes, she was in ballet practicing her routine for the recital. That's her with her hands clapping in the air.
And when practice was over, in the long standing tradition of the Nevada Dance Academy, Ms. Diane hoisted the celebrant who donned on that Special Hey, I Have A Cake On My Head hat and everyone circled around them to sing "Happy Birthday."
We asked Bella where she wanted to go for her Birthday Lunch. She chose Buffalo Wild Wings. I was suprised that she chose a family friendly, sports bar atmosphere so I clarified, "Are you sure?" Ever determined to get her wish, she replied, "It's Daddy's favorite restaurant." Can we all mouth the words "Daddy's Girl"? Well at least, they have crowns there.
Sometimes that rapid passage of time scares me. So before it trickles away, be sure to schedule in a day that's All About You. Go ahead and indulge. And yes, by all means, let there be frosting on that day.
