Fabulous Five!

Lamb 3's birthday began with monkey bread for breakfast.

Then Lamb 3 went to preschool and Lamb 1 and 2 and I went to the preschool later in the morning. They had an Easter party as it was the first day back to school after Easter. It was a little chilly but they had a small egg hunt. Then I read Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed and they acted it out with monkeys. (See children on right in photo.)

We came home from preschool and ate lunch. He requested egg salad which was easy with all our dyed Easter eggs.

Lamb 1 and 2 had piano lessons that afternoon. I always take a bag with stuff to do/books to read while Lamb 3 has one hour to wait during lessons. I was all ready to read to him and on the way to lessons he fell asleep. He slept through all of lessons. He rarely takes a nap any more, Easter and his birthday wore him out!

We had his birthday supper on Easter because Ram and Ewe had meetings on the next two nights. So for supper on his birthday we had leftovers from that. Then we had cake.

He requested peanut butter chocolate chip cake. It was NOT gluten free. I had never made it before but it was really good with a topping instead of frosting. He also requested 5 candles, all Pooh, no Tigger or other characters. I'm enjoying my last boy that likes Pooh while I can. Lamb 1 played Happy Birthday on the piano while we sang to him.

He wore this to preschool the day after his birthday. He is standing on his tiptoes in this photo. He is at an age where when you tell him to smile it looks painful instead of a smile. I took many more photos on his birthday, but these were the ones where he has a decent smile.

Breakfast: Monkey Bread
Lunch: Egg salad
Snack: Chocolate Milk and Chicago Popcorn
Supper: Meatloaf and sweet potatoes (we also had asparagus but that was not his choice)
We ate supper on Easter outside on the patio at the picnic table.
Cake: Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip (Better Homes and Gardens cookbook) with 5 Pooh candles
Restaurant with Grandpa and Grandma: Pizza (a place that has gluten free for adults and kids pizzas come on a Frisbee)
Big present: Lego fire station

Ram's parents are visiting us the next few days. We opened up presents yesterday and went out to eat. Today they will babysit while Ram and I go to the library book sale. It is rainy weather so I'm not sure what we'll do tomorrow.
