We celebrated Clark's birthday on Monday. He wanted a "cars" birthday.
He was a little excited about his birthday this year. He's been eagerly anticipating its arrival since February. When he came out of his room first thing and he saw the balloon and his special place setting I heard him whisper, "It's my birthday!" He was excited to have a bagel for breakfast.
After breakfast he played outside for a little while and then watched an episode of "Chuck and Friends" Then we loaded up the van and picked up Aunt Cathy and the cousins and headed to a local park to play.
After we went to the park we came home and fixed lunch. Clark wanted leftover mac and cheese and everyone else had ham sandwiches. After lunch they made scenes with stickers from the movie Cars. Then I read a couple books to Clark and everyone went to their rooms for quiet time. During quiet time I decorated Clark's cookie cake. After quiet time Clark wanted to watch the movie Cars. Daddy and Clark went to get pizza for supper and then we had cake and presents. Clark was so excited about all of his gifts. I really enjoy this age when the anticipation for a present is high and the excitement is catching and the joy upon the gift received is fun to watch. Grammy came over with Riley (dog) and brought Clark a present too. After her visit, when she was leaving he told her thank you for the present all by himself.
