Wordless Wednesday: You say it's your birthday

I made it another revolution around the sun! Mikko was happy to help me celebrate.


Matching boys, off to use some of my many birthday freebie coupons.
(That's not a sponsored link — just figured you might like to do the same when it's your turn.)


Consulting the drinks list.


But he always orders the same thing.


We take annual pictures at Red Robin, despite the atrocious lighting.


The neon clothing trend is giving me flashbacks to my junior high school wardrobe. (This post is all about dating me.)


Shanghaiing my ice cream sundae.


The big boys went to Party City and got ideas for games as well as assorted festoonery.


A Pin the Tail-esque game where we had to spell our names on a line.


Mikko cheated by peeking underneath the blindfold, so he could put his perfectly in a line. Have I mentioned he likes things just so? He was antsy that we left our names "silly."


This was a really fun scavenger hunt for miniature colored frisbees. Don't let his affected expression of ennui fool you; that's his customary "Here, pose with this" face.


Sam and Mikko constructed this truly horrifying piñata.
I think it's supposed to be me at my age.


Whack!


Treats! Which Mikko ate. He called that "sharing" and chided me for wanting bites.


Alrik approves of the festivities. His newest skill is clapping, all the time, for any and all reasons.


Birthday brownies!




Açai berry punch


Batman plates and decorations. We're set.


Hey, what are you eating? Where's my bite?


Mmm.

I love the matching dino shirts and the pinata - and of course, I think Alrik placed an excellent dinner order ;-)
