So, for the first time in 11 years Brian got to celebrate his birthday in the US. Of course, he had to celebrate it a little bit early as his actual birthday is on a school day, but close enough! I can’t believe that my handsome young man is 14 years old already. He’s an awesome kiddo though, and I know that we are lucky that he is ours!
He chose “The Cheesecake Factory” for his dinner out. We went a bit early as it gets so crowded around here on weekends. We still had to wait awhile, but it gave us a little goofing off time before we were seated.
Brian chose a vanilla-chocolate swirl cake with coconut pecan frosting for his cake. Honor frosted it and decorated it for him too. Yum!
I think he had a fun time. We got him the main things that he’d been asking for, nice headphones for his PC and his own cell phone, and a few things that he didn’t ask for, like a York peppermint patty (hey, those things are good!) and some new jeans – which is quite an accomplishment. Trying to find pants that are tall and slim enough for him is tough. (and I found TWO pair!)
And here are a couple of pics of others who enjoyed Brian’s birthday festivities too! Happy Birthday Brian! We love you!
