Sam's birthday in pictures

At long last, I am finally posting pictures from Sam's big day! We had such a fun family day doing all kinds of fun stuff. It worked out nicely that Sam's birthday fell on Jim's day off.

First we went candlepin bowling . . . he looks so old in this picture!!
I love watching the kids bowl. It's so cute!

Josiah was proud to be the big winner of the game!
Then we went to Chili's for lunch, because we happened to have coupon that made the kids' meals free!
We don't go out often to anyplace other than fast-food, so this was a big treat for everyone. Sam even got a free dish of ice cream when the waitress found out it was his birthday! :)
After that, we did a little shopping, and then came home to get ready for his party. My parents and Grampa came over for supper. After we ate, Sam unwrapped some fun presents, like a sleeping bag . . .
and a super hero cape made by his Grammy!
And then it was time for cake and ice cream! He drew me a picture of what he wanted his cake to look like. Can you tell what it is?
Ah, here's a better view:
Blowing out the candle--I love his expression!
It was a great day and we all had so much fun! I love to make birthdays special for my kiddos. (Remind me of that when I am staying up late again to make Julia and Josiah's cakes next month, okay? :))
