So, the birthday celebration was a success. He's old and tall enough to drive a go kart (real gas powered, no tethered track go kart) all on his own. It was pretty cool to watch him go although DH and I had to slow down our go karts and egg him on to "floor it" - wait a few years and we will be reversing that I am SURE! ;->
We played a game of putt putt. The waterfalls, ships, and other sculptures, etc were very cool and it was a well kept course.
DS got to play a few arcade games - here's he's trying to skateboard on a virtual skateboarding game. Very complicated!
We took him to eat at his favorite restaurant for Dinner - Carrabas! Here we are waiting to place our order.
And here we are at home with his cake. I baked the cake. I never bake cakes on birthdays. It's kind of pitiful looking but tasted damn good!
Oh, and, why yes, that IS the top that I knit on vacation this year. Thank you so much for noticing!
