magically delicious birthday breakfast
birthday at Incredible Pizza - spinning the birthday wheel and getting ready for laser tag
bumper cars were Luke's favorite. not too surprising since his two favorite things are to go fast and to crash into everything.
Luke requested a GUN CAKE
and I somehow coerced my dad into helping me (doing it for me). I think he had fun.
Apparently it was his first ever cake. And he calls himself an artist.
the man with the golden gun...cake
He got lots of great presents. Mostly guns. :) G&G got him a spy gun with a silencer, a scope and flashlight, the Cremeans got him an awesome nerf disc gun and Aunt Kate gave him a handmade leather holster. And his cousins wrote and drew him birthday cards. What a lucky kid.
His actual birthday ...
I took him on a date to Playhouse on the Square's production of Annie.
A couple weeks ago I was on the phone and saw Luke and Lucy carrying loads of clothes, toys, books, shoes, blankets, pillows, stools, bins and stuffed animals into the kitchen. When I got off the phone, I found... the hoarders tower. Luke was so proud and wanted me to be too. I think I was just tired of trying to keep any sort of order in this house. So, I just let go and said I liked his crazy hoarders tower. And I even let him sleep in it that night. I know, don't tell my grandmas.
pps - we weighed and measured Luke on his 5th birthday. So for the record - Luke is 44 pounds and 44 inches. (a square boy)
