Happy Birthday

May 22nd, 2008 · by sarra · No Comments

Link turned 3 on May 7. When it was time to get up, Alex and I woke him by singing Happy Birthday to him. Since it was a weekday, we decided to let him have a party at school.

I baked him a train cake, and brought little ice cream cups. Alex met me at school. When we went into the classroom, the kids were all at the table, and Link and Jack had been singing Happy Birthday to themselves for a while. We all sang Happy Birthday, and then the cake was served. And then ice cream! Then more cake was served, since Jack’s mom* also brought cupcakes. The cupcakes had sprinkles, and Ms. Mary let Link have all the sprinkles that had fallen into the box. He put them on his ice cream. After the food was gone, we said goodbye and headed home.

Before I went to the school, I’d gone home and set up all his presents. His new basketball hoop was in the garage, so before we even went in the house, we played some basketball. Then he went inside and saw all his presents in the kitchen. He opened presents and then played with his new toys for a while.

We gave Link the choice of Pizza or Jason’s for dinner. He chose Pizza. We finished the evening with a quick trip to Best Buy and then home to bed.

Link hadn’t been in his bedroom since that morning. One of the presents that I set up earlier in the day was Link’s new Thomas bed. I waited in his room to catch the reveal on tape.

It was a lovely end to a Happy Birthday.

*I don’t want to be sexist, I suppose his dad might have brought them.
