Christian's Birthday Extravaganza

Rather than having a birthday party for Christian, we decided to make it a three-day extravaganza.  The festivites started with cupcakes at school, and pizza for dinner on Friday night ... and giving Christian his much-desired Millenium Falcon:

On Saturday morning, Auntie Liz joined us and we had muffins at Paradise Bakery:

After breakfast, we headed to the Pumpkin Patch for our annual visit.  We didn't make it before Halloween and I think our new tradition will be to do it after Halloween.  There were far fewer people there this time, and it was MUCH cooler than in years past.

(More pics of both kiddos at the Pumpkin Patch coming up in another post)

We then headed to Margaritaville for lunch.  Christian was expecting to have spaghetti and meatballs, but we were disappointed to learn they were no longer on the menu.

We gave Scarlett a French fry to try ... and she liked it!

Next we headed to "Enchanted Island" in Phoenix.  It was our first time going - it is a small amusement park for younger children.  They don't let parents on most rides, citing we're too tall.  So I didn't think Christian would go on without one of us ... BUT HE DID!  He rode on a roller coaster (twice!), and airplane ride (TWICE) and a UFO ride.   And the carousel, but ... I was with him for that one.

I got this video below of his FIRST TIME ON A ROLLER COASTER!


At long last, we headed home to eat a delicious sand castle birthday cake that Auntie Liz made ... a birthday tradition.

The next day, he got his BIKE!  But that is a whole other post!  Stay tuned! :)
