We had a pretty good day. The kids arrived home from their mom and grandparents house around noon, and we had a quiet afternoon.
Gavin decided he wanted pizza and chicken for his birthday dinner. We’re not actually celebrating his birthday until Sunday but we always do a special dinner on the actual day. We started that tradition because there were times in the past where money was so tight, ordering dinner wasn’t easy. On birthdays, we wanted the kids to have something special, something that we couldn’t do very often.
Anyway, I ordered Gavin’s dinner and we watched Impractical Jokers. It was a nice evening.
Tomorrow, we’re going bowling and out to dinner with family. It’s kind of a unique way to celebrate his birthday. There’s no school on Monday so we can take our time and not rush back.
Gavin still doesn’t know what he wants for his birthday but he’s working on it.
