We had Aidan’s home birthday party today. Nana made an amazing train cake and fun was had by all!
It is hard to believe that Aidan turned 7 years old today. Shockingly, he wanted a train for his birthday. But this train is no ordinary train… it is a double-decker HO scale train (the things I have learned about trains b/c of my dear Aidan 🙂
We went to his class and had cupcakes with his friends (without the camera so that we did not embarrass him as a big first grader).
Aidan picked the restaurant for dinner – Brixx pizza. Never a bad choice.
Lastly, one more round of cupcakes. Daddy got more icing on his hands than in his stomach.
More celebrations coming up this weekend.
Nana arranged an amazing birthday trip for Aidan today. To start our day, we took the Amtrak train to Greensboro. That part alone was simply amazing. Aidan was glued to the window the entire trip. Next on the agenda, a visit to the Kernersville Train Depot. Last stop, a local Indian restaurant for lunch. On the way home Aidan declared that today was the best birthday present ever. I think we will both remember this day for quite a while.
The next steps:
put together the raised beds
put up some deer fencing
put in the soil mix
add seeds for fall vegetables
Super excited about this project. Maybe the third time with vegetable gardening will be the charm 🙂
