It was Roy's birthday.

That was Monday. Here is the blog about it. I never did get around to the one about going to Seattle. I still may do the one about some new recipes I've tried. We'll see.
Anyway, the birthday.
D LOVES birthdays. He came in at 2:30 am Monday to notify me that the CD he'd gotten from the library had a birthday song on it. At 3:30 am he bounded in bubbling about how we could sing it for daddy's birthday and who knows what else. (I'm not a very good listener at that time of day.)
Finally, it was really morning. Roy was ready for work but before he could leave we-of course- had to listen to the song. It is pretty catchy. Plus it is really fun to watch D sitting in his little chair, foot bouncing along to the music following the words.
During the day the kids and I went on a quest to find the traditional ice cream cake. It should have been easier that it was. D was waiting in the car for me by 9:30am. At 10, we go by Baskin Robbins -- they don't open until 11. We had some other errands to run. We stopped by Safeway where we picked up some Captain Crunch (5 boxes for $.99 each!). Roy's fave is the peanut butter stuff. We headed to Goodwill to browse around. D found a game he wanted ($3 brand new!). Finally, it was 11 and we headed to BR again. They didn't have what we wanted so I figured 'no big deal, we'll go to Dairy Queen'.
Bigger deal that I thought. After driving 10 minutes to the nearest DQ only to find it waaaaay old school. No dining room. No drive up. Park car, walk to window, order food, wait in cold for said food, go back to car and drive home. I didn't even get out to inquire about cakes. We just went back to BR but a different store with more cake varieties.
Home to get dinner ready. We wrapped 3 boxes of PB Captain Crunch and the game D found at Goodwill in old grocery store ads. Since dinner was taking a while and Roy got home early we sang Happy Birthday and opened presents. Two games of Horton Hears a Who later we ate dinner, sang Happy Birthday again and enjoyed cake.
Good times.

Aren't you looking all bloggy festive for St. Patricks Day....Cute!

Sounds like a daddy birthday. Isn't it funny how that happens when you have kids.
