Anyway, on to the actual day. May 9, 2013 Jacob turned 5!
In the morning we had the Mother's Day Tea at school and my mom was able to go to that with us, so that was nice. I think Jacob really loved having Gee there. After school we came home and had lunch and put Henry down for a nap. Basic, normal, every day stuff.
Then that evening after John got home from work and my parents got back to our house, John took Jacob to the store with him, so we could get his presents set up in the house. That was pretty fun, I gotta say! I loved the "surprise" factor that we hadn't done up to this point. When he came in the house he was pretty excited to see all his presents!
After they rode their bikes for a bit, John and I came in to start his birthday dinner: crab legs, corn-on-the-cob and roasted red potatoes. YUM! Not a lot of five year olds have that for their birthday dinner (not a lot of five year olds WANT that for their birthday dinner)! Anyway, we had a wonderfully yummy dinner and then it was time for some cake and singing!! Jacob requested a tie-dyed cake, so that's what he had for his birthday. It turned out really cute and tasted even better!!
