Mason, On Your 4th Birthday...

You woke up a little after 7, even though you were up late the night before.

I made cinnamon raisin biscuits for breakfast and we let you have "old" (pop, but not really pop) for breakfast. You were pretty darn excited about that.

We sang Happy Birthday and you blew out your candle. Then Finnley kept saying, "My turn!"

We presented you your present by playing the trailer for the movie, Big Hero 6 and letting you know we'd be taking you to see it later in the day. You were disappointed because there weren't any presents to open.

I left you with Dad and your sisters to attend Brandie's baby shower. You got to watch your favorite show on Netflix, Oscar's Oasis and have hot dogs and chips for dinner.

While Grandma Kim stayed home with Elliot and Finnley, Dad and I took you to the movie (your first!) in the afternoon. You thought the inside of the theater looked like a hotel, probably because of the carpet. You held your ears for the first few minutes and couldn't quite get your seat to fold all the way down when sitting in it. After a while, your feet fell asleep and you sat on Dad's lap and later mine. You had popcorn (complete with yellow dyes, boo) and a bottle of water. I think it is safe to say you enjoyed yourself.

We stopped at Hy-vee before heading home, got a few groceries and a pizza to bake for supper, which we had with raspberries and knock knock jokes.

After supper, we got ready for bed. Dad read you books, you told me you were going to dream about robots, and you went to sleep, snuggling with Dad (and beloved Paci, of course.)
