Chan's Birthday

Chan's birthday was a lot of fun. I don't know why but birthdays seem like a big deal to me. Maybe because they seemed like a big deal growing up. It should be extra special right? A whole day dedicated to just you. We told Chan Happy Birthday around 100 times throughout the day. We tried to think of what he would like to do on his special day, so we went to eat at one of his favorite restaurants, picked one of his favorite activities, and then invited his best friend to come along.
That night we went to Panda Express, aka Kung Fu Panda. Maybe that's why Chandler likes this place so much. After dinner we went swimming and he was so excited when Carson showed up. I wish I had gotten a good picture, but they hugged many times that night they were both so happy.



After swimming the Birch's came over to have cake and ice cream with us.
I was going to make just a normal sheet cake but decided to go out on a limb. Thanks to familyfun.com I made this cute crocodile cake. I'm pretty happy how it turned out considering I don't have much artistic ability, just don't look too close. Chandler LOVED it and that's what matters.



It was a great day, and I'm sure Chan would agree.

I am sure as you are discovering, you own kid's birthday is even more exciting than your own.

Great job on the cake!! I said it before, and I'll say it again. I can't believe it's been three years. Anyone else think time is flying by? Happy birthday Chandler!
