Yesterday "C" (a.k.a. "Buster Blues!) turned 9. I stayed home and we had a terrific family day, very fun yet very low-key. We went swimming, then out for a nice dinner at our favorite family restaurant, Pizzeria Uno's, then home to open presents. He'll have a small birthday party this weekend; I shouldn't and won't complain but for the life of me we couldn't get him interested in a "big" party or event! He was certain he wanted a party with just three or four of his closest friends, and extended family, and he wanted to have it at home. Well, saves us some money at least!
It's going to be a very hectic weekend though, got several errands and one (potentially unpleasant) medical appointment tomorrow, then C's party on Saturday, than an early college graduation brunch for The Momma's brother in northwestern MA Sunday morning. (Those who know us realize we don't do "early" well, especially when we're going somewhere a couple of hours away!) Also for C's party we have to go pick up a couple of C's friends in New Hampshire Saturday morning, and bring them back afterwards in the afternoon... yeesh! But at least they're all fun events so it'll be worth the extra work.
One year ago this week we were at Disney World for C's 8th birthday... we'll be heading back there this fall and we're already counting the days until that trip (136). Kungaloosh!!
