I can’t believe we’re nearing April. 2018 seems to be off to a great start for the Dean family.
At the beginning of the month, we found some ways to celebrate Mr. Landon turning 8 years old. On his actual birthday, he picked his favorite restaurant – Red Robin – for dinner, then we took him out for some family bowling.
It was a late night – the bowling worker told us each game might take 15-20 mins so we signed up for 2 games. Turns out he was completely wrong and it took us about 1.5 hours to get through 2 games. (And Dean and I were both sore the next day from so many bowls!) Of course, we made sure there was still time for a cupcake before bed!
Then, because his birthday was on a Thursday, we spent the weekend making his special birthday cake – RED VELVET – and held a birthday celebration for Landon and his two birthday cousins (the three of them celebrate their birthday within 4 days – I know, crazy right?!)
We hit a local park for some soccer and a game of kickball – then ate some leftover cake from all the birthday celebrations from earlier in the week!
There were no Pinterest decorations or themes. We didn’t have 30 kids come over. It was so simple and perfect. Family, fun and beautiful weather.
What a fun way to celebrate this sweet thing!
