Henry's big day started with breakfast and presents in bed. He got his own Leapster (no more borrowing Lucy's!), which he said was, "really neat". Lucy gave him a black dog, which he named "Skittle". There was also a pirate ship and a cow tractor from "Cars".
That afternoon, the gang came over for a "Cars" party. There was lots of racing and possibly a little cheating.
After the races were over, every one came in and cooled off with a little of this:
Then, on to "Pin the Piston Cup on Lighting McQueen". This is where things got a little wild.
A bit of rainbow chip cake with chocolate/sour cream frosting really hit the spot.
He opened some wonderfully thoughtful presents. Henry was in heaven.
We finished his special day with dinner at Cheeburger Cheeburger. Delicious AND served in a box shaped like a roadster! Does it get any better than that?
By bedtime, Henry was in a daze. As I was tucking him in, I asked him what his favorite part of the day was and he said, "The presents.". I've always loved birthdays, but they are exponentially more fun when they are for my kids.
