Saturday we were supposed to have a picnic but the weather wasn't nice so I improvised with indoor camping. It was pretty fun! We ate a picnic, opened gifts and watched Back to the Future. I made pasta salad, smoothies and sandwiches. I thought the sandwiches were really yummy... sourdough bread grilled with fresh mozzerella, provolone cheese, tomato slices and pesto.
For dinner on Saturday, Daniel requested that my mom make Thai Chicken, one of his favorites. She also surprised him with another dessert, blueberry pie! He enjoyed our family tradition of opening his gifts and eating pie, while having the Happy Birthday song sung to him (very slowly and off-key).
|Haha... 8+1= 9|
Sunday evening we celebrated with friends! I made nachos and strawberry trifle. He loves to play games so we enjoyed Settlers of Catan and Poop Smoothie (don't ask! haha..)

All in all, I thought it was a nice birthday weekend.
