Monday, May 13th was Lane’s 5th birthday. I originally planned to tape balloons on his door like I did for Bethany. However, after he fell asleep I remembered that he has several of his favorite school projects taped to his bedroom door. So, I changed plans and just put balloons in the little hallway to his room. He was so excited when he woke up on his birthday!
Then, he and Chris spent a good bit of time launching catapults and driving remote control cars.
For his birthday breakfast, I offered to fix ANYTHING he wanted but he chose a frozen waffle. So, we stuck a candle in the waffle and sang Happy Birthday!
After school we took Lane to Treetop Family Adventure. We had never been out there before. Lane and Bethany had a blast playing in the playground, bowling and
….”playing” miniature golf. Lane is in desperate need for his Papaw to come teach him how to golf. He has quite the unusual technique for hitting the golf ball!
We spent a VERY long time on this hole. It had four levels. The kids had a blast taking turns dropping the ball in the hole and watching where it would roll out on the next level.
After Treetop, Lane chose where he wanted to eat for his birthday dinner. He chose Don Pepe. Can you tell we like Mexican food just a little bit!
Overall, it was a wonderful day spent celebrating my sweet boy! We love you Lane!
