Greyson had quite the birthday extravaganza. He threw me for a loop in November when he said that he didn't want to have a big birthday party at the Fire Station. Say what? I had been planning a super fun party there. So instead, we did something that he loved. He got to plan his party with his friends (more on that in a bit) and had little parties with his grandparents.
Mom's side came over a few days after Christmas for cake and ice cream. A bit later, we headed to dinner at Chuckie Cheese's. He got this swing from Mom and Bill and he loves it.
Then, we headed to Great Grandma's for Dad's side of the family. We did dinner and cake. He loved it there as well. I can't remember what he got (it kinda all runs together with Christmas).
On Saturday, we had his "birthday party" with his friends. He had a "costume party" where Katelyn and Preston came over in costumes. Luke made a cardboard spaceship so they all played pretend. I picked up Papa Murphy's and the kids all had their own individual ones to make. It was simple and fun.
Greyson's actual birthday fell on Sunday, so we asked him where he would like to eat his favorite meal of the day (breakfast). He choose The Aviary. Smart boy!
They brought our dessert crepe out with a candle...how sweet was that?
He had a great birthday weekend and I learned that I don't need to feel guilty about throwing a huge birthday party, because he loved the little ones that he had. He just asked yesterday when he could have his friends over for another costume party. =)
