Okay, when I said we were having a birthday week, I actually meant a birthday month. This past week has we have moved away from Victoria, vacationed in Sandpoint, Idaho, and tried to put our lives back together in Calgary again. So, this next week will be a catch up week to get us to all the exciting things we're doing all summer. I've got some reviews, a giveaway, and some potty training adventures ahead!
So, without further ado, let's talk about Eli and his incredible, adventuresome, triple wicked awesome birthday adventures!!!
On the day Eli turned four we woke up early for some "Birthday Mush." This is a tradition I had forgotten about until my sister-in-law mentioned that this year was the first time she didn't do "Birthday Mush." As a kid we always ate oatmeal for breakfast on our birthdays. If we ate our entire bowl we would find that the birthday fairy left some money for us at the bottom. If we didn't eat our entire bowl, all the money would disappear! So, on the morning of Eli's birthday we started the tradition in our own family, and sat down to some "Birthday Mush." And let me tell you, the birthday fairy was generous this year and Eli (and even Silas) really cashed in.
Sadly Jared had to go to school during Eli's birthday celebrations, so we went home for a nap and waited for him to finish.
When he was home we headed back to Fisherman's Wharf to see if we could see some real pirates. The pirates were apparently off pillaging some village, because they were nowhere to be seen, but we did see our seal friends again!
It was wonderful. I love my Eli so much and am grateful for the last four years and all he has taught me. Here's to many more wonderful birthdays and adventures with my boys.
