July 27, 2011 Andrew turned 6. The day started with blueberry muffins for breakfast (with a candle of course) and a few presents. Drew was able to go to work a little later so he could see Andrew on his big day. Then we tried to beat the heat and headed out for some miniature golf. All 3 kids had a blast and the birthday boy even got a hole in one. Next was a trip to Target so Matthew could pick out a present for his big brother. After Target we got a call from dad that he was headed back to the office from a meeting out by us. He stopped and had lunch with us on the way back to work. Andrew picked Penn Station for his birthday lunch.
After lunch we came home for the younger two to nap and Andrew had some alone time with his new Lego set. For dinner Andrew's choice was Chick Fil A. We lucked out because they had a "parking lot party" that night at Chick Fil A. There was a bounce house, face painter, games, and of course the cow made an appearance. After dinner, we came home and opened a few more presents. I think he had a great day.
Saturday we had a few of his buddies to the movie theater to watch Cars 2. The theater did a great job with the party. Each boy had popcorn, a drink, and fruit snacks during the movie. Then after the movie we went to the party room for cake and presents. It was an easy party for me and Drew and lots of fun for all the boys.
Matthew had a party for one of his friends after Andrew's party so Drew took him. I came home with Andrew and relieved my mom who was watching Molly. Of course Andrew spent the rest of his evening putting together his new Lego sets and playing the new games he got from his friends.
Sunday, we had ANOTHER party at my parents house. It was a welcome home from Greece/Family party for Andrew. My mom already had all of their pictures printed and they were amazing. Of course Andrew felt extra special with MANY more presents, Dominos for dinner, and a Star Wars cake. Grandma even had party games; a water balloon toss and potato on a spoon races. It was a great way to end Andrew's birthday WEEK:).
