The night before his Birthday, my sister in law was here from Alaska, so we decided to do Sam's Birthday dinner early, to celebrate with her, and we went out to Dairy Keen. It is a locally owned hamburger/milkshake place that people come from all over to try. They have these amazing award winning shakes that are so good! They also have trains going around the ceiling, and Lego tables and train tables throughout the place for kids to play with. We all had a good time, and Sam enjoyed is brownie shake.
Yes, it is Dairy Keen, not Dairy King. It was actually built before Diary King. Still hard to get used to though.
After Dairy Keen, it was off to the pet store. Sam is getting a lizard for his Birthday, and it is a very big deal to him. He has been talking about it for months! We let him look at the lizards and get an idea of what he might want.
On his actual Birthday, Ben was out of town, and we had company coming and going, so we kept it low key.
He still had a great day though.
He brought treats to school, played with friends after school, had pizza for dinner, grandma JoJo arrived, and we went to the pet store where he picked out the actual lizard he wants, and we bought the cage and everything else for it. We are waiting until we get home from Disneyland before we bring the lizard home. That way no one else has to take care of it for us.
He came home, opened presents, and we all crashed.
Today was the party. My oh my, was it a party. Twelve boys ages 6-8 blasting through the house. Three couldn't come, so it would have been 15...and that is just the boys his age that live within walking distance of our house. Obviously, Sam had a great time.
We played pin the tail on the lizard.

Did a piñata (no pictures, sorry). I was just trying not to get smacked with the stick.
Decorated cupcakes like lizards.
Sam blew out the candles.
