Zander's birthday events

June 10, 2009

On Zander's actual birthday, I took the day off from work and we surprised him with a few "adventures". First we went to Ham Lake Park for some fishing. About 10 minutes after we got there, it started raining, so we went home.

Then Grandma Wendy came over for lunch and to watch Mason during adventure #2. We took Zander to see his first movie ever - Up! Yes, that's right - he's 5 and just seeing a movie in the theater for the first time. I think we've set the bar pretty high since he probably thinks all movies are in 3D and require glasses.

After the movie, Mana and Zander made another attempt at fishing and were successful - and even brought a "friend" back home. The next day, they took it to WBL and released it.

After dinner, we put a candle in a chocolate chip cookie so he'd have a candle to blow out on his b-day. Cake coming later.

Family Birthday Party
The immediate family came to our place for a pirate themed b-day party. Here's everyone staying cool in the shade while the kids ran through the sprinkler.

While presents were being opened, a pirate buried some treasure in the sandbox, so the kids had fun digging it up.
