Ciaran's Bday

Each year on their birthday the kids get an opportunity to choose the meals and activities of the day. Ciaran recently turned 6 and for his birthday dinner he wanted Fruit Salad - that is all. A really nice and big fruit salad. I think it would have been cheaper to go out to dinner at the restuarant of his choice! Still some years they pick macaroni and cheese so there you go. So for dinner we had fresh fruit salad: pineapple, watermelon, canteloupe, apples, peaches, blueberries, strawberries, kiwi, and grapes. We also served Prima Donna Gouda cheese - my favorite Gouda which we had leftover from recently entertaining. It was delicious and wonderful this time of year, even if some produce was out of season and expensive.

For dessert we had Ninja Turtle cake - half chocolate/chocolate and half vanilla/vanilla - it came out quite well. Now for the predictable part we played video games all day. His first choice, going to the arboretum to find frogs was rained out so we stayed inside and played video games all day. I even played TMNT with him which made him excited.

He was excited for his birthday gifts and overall I think he had a great day. His friend birthday party is this weekend. We are doing something different from his usual frog party - which I am thankful for since it is supposed to rain all weekend. We are hosting a board game birthday party with a total of 14 kids including our own! Planning on having a fun time.
