LJ's 5th Birthday

Luke celebrated his 5th birthday on July 10th.  I can't believe that was almost two weeks ago already.  It was a really fun day.  Troy took the day off work and we celebrated all day long.  Luke and I planned the menu a few days in advance: pancakes for breakfast, Chipotle for lunch, and hot dogs and corn on the cob for dinner.  After breakfast, Troy and I surprised Luke with a trip to Toys R Us to pick out a new bike and then we went to the mall for a visit to the Lego store.  Luke picked out a new Lego set and also filled a cup with his choice of Legos.  We also found out that you get to make your own minifigure on your birthday--bonus!  We grabbed Chipotle on the way home for lunch and then it was a pretty quiet afternoon.  Troy and Luke put together his Lego set and his new bike and then had to wait for the random rain storm to pass to go for a ride.  (That's two birthdays in a row with a random rain storm in the afternoon messing with our plans.)  Grandma, Grandpa, Kristi and Wesley came over to have dinner and ice cream cake with us.  Luke also got to open some more presents.  Luke told me as he was going to bed that it was the best birthday ever :)
