Happy Birthday, Sweetheart!

No, it wasn't Russell's birthday, but he celebrated like it was! From 6am when he woke up and I told him it was Dad's birthday, he asked, "Can we eat cake now?" Due to our oven dying on Friday evening, there was no plans for a b-day cake so I told Russell that we'd go to the ice-cream shop after his nap and maybe there would be cake there.

With the temperatures hovering around 95F this weekend, ice cream was definitely in need:-) Russell's had more candy toppings than ice cream but as you can see from the bit in his hair, he enjoyed every bite.

Maddie and her mom (and Dad) joined us for the treat:-) Beautiful little girl.

As we left Baskin Robbin's, Russell said he still wanted cake. This kid doesn't forget anything we say. Since I had promised him cake, we drove over to the grocery store and bought one piece of carrot cake in the deli section...
Russell insisted on a candle and then we both sang "Happy Birthday" to Dan very loudly;-)

Again, I should remind you that it was Dan's birthday and not Russell's, but I can tell you who enjoyed the celebration more!

I love you, Dan!!!

I just love that when you have kids everything is about them. But then again, adult birthdays can be rather dull without kids bringing on the fun! Happy Birthday Dan!

Oh boy! That memory thing with Russell will probably come in handy as he grows up and becomes a man with resposibilites ;-)

Too cute.

I was wondering what was in his hair. LOL.

Happy Birthday Russel, I mean Dan.

That's a great expression on R's face!! He's maturing so quickly.
