Wizards, Legos and Thor—Oh MY!!!

Mr. Evan is not really 6 yet.  His “real” birthday is still a couple of weeks away but since he opted for a trip instead of a birthday party this year, he already had his big celebration.  It was a weekend whirlwind of fun. 
Friday, both boys had field trips at school.  Mr. E and I went to the zoo. 

here we are waiting in line to get in

I don’t know how well you can see, but this is a huge male turkey who was fanning out all his feathers and gobbling LOUDLY–I guess he didn’t like this noisy bunch of kids so close


my boy with his best buds

how cute is it that they aren’t too big yet to hold hands?

fooling around in line



what cute guys!

with his teacher—Mrs. S—she is WONDERFUL!! and we LOVE her.  I may cry when he leaves her class for the last time next week.
Next up, zooming to Ft. Worth to see the Wizard of Oz.  The play was well done. The kids LOVED it.  We always ask them “what was your best part?” and both of them said they couldn’t pick a best part because they liked the whole thing sooo much.
Then up and at ’em early the next morning for LEGO Land discovery center.  I think I may have mentioned this before but E and his Daddy are crazy for Legos!!!
my niece and my boy

Lego land was really cool buut, once you’ve done it, you’ve done it.  It wasn’t nearly as large as we thought it was going to be from checking it out online.  And it didn’t take near as long as we expected it to.  We were done in a couple of hours.  So, since we were all starving, and we had extra time, we went next door to the dine in theatre and saw Thor and had a yummy lunch.  I think everyone liked the theatre as much or more than Legoland.  All four kids are already planning a return trip to the theatre!

Then we headed back to the house.  My parents came over to see the kids and we ate the Lego cake.

If I had more time I would have done somethign more complicated and detailed but E was happy with this.  Besides, I’ve got to make another bday cake on his actual birthday.

Happy birthday to you!!!

Make a wish baby!!!
He had a great weekend.  We all had lots of fun and the kids all played together so well (that’s a gift to the grown ups!)  Thanks to Nana and Granpa for joining us for the party.  And thanks to MayMay and Reg for letting us stay with you.  We had lots of fun!!!
