We interrupt this string of long overdue blog updates to share that our boy just turned TEN!
Birthday party is coming up this weekend - see if you figure out the theme from the banner.
After camp we immediately hit the ice cream truck. Somebody had never had a chocolate dip before and now thinks they are one of the world's greatest inventions. Dinner was predictably at Guapo's.
Recognize this guy? Yes, after Father's Day, Joseph decided he desperately wanted a Fudgie the Whale ice cream cake for his birthday, which we found you can special order from a shop in Arlington. Only problem there was that his party will be outdoors and it's a 45 minute drive from home, so no way Fudgie would have survived. Our solution was to have all the kids on the block over on his actual birthday for Fudgie, and we'll have a regular cake at his party.
Something about him entering the double digits really got to me, and I decided Joseph really needed a super special present to mark the occasion. In a move that shocked everyone, I very spontaneously agreed that he could get an Xbox, and O. M. G. was he surprised and excited!!!!
