But this year I had 2 five year olds who have told us each morning how many days it was until their birthday. I couldn't help but get a little excited with them and so this year we really did try hard to make it a birthday they would remember. It started out on Sunday with an afternoon for just two little girls with their mom and dad. We went out to lunch at their restaurant of choice, Boudin Bakery (think clam soup in bread bowls), followed by shopping for summer clothes and a trip to the candy store. Before heading home we met Grandma Pat for some more shopping and lets just say the girls have plenty to wear this summer. Drew had no complaints about us being gone when the girls handed him an assortment of candy from our favorite candy store.

|Their birthday song and prayer at school. Their classmates back and forth as the girls turn around in circles. I would have been sick by the end of the song from all the circles but they did just fine!|
|Love that that they happily allowed Drew to open one gift and one card. It made his day.|
|A very cute garbage boy!|

I think the girls will be sad tomorrow when they wake up and realize their birthday is not for another 364 days but at the same time I think they would agree with Drew that "that was the best birthday ever." Now hopefully daddy will be saying the same thing 9 days from now!
