Well another birthday came and went in April, little Ethan-Bug turned 7. We had a great day with him ditching school for breakfast and a movie. Here's his wild hair that morning. (I just recently got around to
cutting shaving it. He now looks like Charlie Brown. *smile*)
The movie was OK. Nothing spectacular about this one except the use of color which was pretty cool. And then when we watched the Rio episode of "The Amazing Race" we realized how dead on the writers and illustrators really were. Carnival is crazy down there with all the dancing and music and outfits and colors. This movie really does that justice.
We bought a full sized popcorn and drink for the first time in like forever and believe me it WILL be the last. $7.50 for a Large Popcorn. Did you know this? (I'm one of those cheapos who smuggles in my own treats to the movies usually) While we were standing slack-jawed staring at concession stand prices, we also learned that a full-priced adult
movie, err, ticket, is now $10.75 at our theatre. INSANE. I'll stick to my $1 redbox movies and freebies at the library!
With a yummy treat and racecar tied to the bottom.
This is the infamous DS game that he snuck from under the tree and opened a week before Christmas. And played with. And subsequently lost.
Ironically, Cameron had done laundry the day before E's party, hadn't checked any pockets, and washed Ethan's DS. It's toast. Anyone know how to fix a water-damaged Nintendo DS? (This story reminds me of The Gift of the Magi. Lol)
Ethan asked for roller skates and the "walker that you get at Great Skate". I was laughing with Chris about this and she says "James can make him one."
And so he did. Is this fun or what? Just to use while practicing until he gets his balance. (Pictures of that to come!)
My favorite part, the cake!
This was a pretty easy one, but I thought it turned out so stinkin' cute.
