Happy 3rd birthday, Ben!
We had a fun tailgate with Ben’s friends yesterday for his birthday (invitation to left). Ben loves (LOVES) trucks, and especially MONSTER trucks. He wanted to sit in a pickup truck and have cupcakes with his friends for his birthday. While we were waiting for the biiiig truck to show up (Giji’s big truck with her three kids!) it started raining, so we all piled into the Xterra and listened to the Boss’ “Waitin’ on a Sunny Day” 🙂 After messy cupcakes in the back of the pickup, we went for a swim in the tide pools. Sam built the foundation for a building from huge pieces of rock that he moved around using a boogie board for a float, just like the way coral was harvested and hauled to build Kawaiahao church in Honolulu. After tide pool time, Ben took mommy and daddy to a fancy birthday lunch of his choosing – Taco Bell! Sam went shopping with Gramma and Richard to pick up a present for his brother, then lunch at CPK.
Happy Third Birthday, big man! We love you very much!
