Owen's birthday ended up being spread out over the weekend. Mike and I both had to work on Saturday (Owen's birthday and Valentines Day) so Owen and Ashley spent the night with grandma Reva. They had a lot of fun being crafty, baking and helping decorate Mike and my vehicles with hearts while we were working. Mike picked them up after work then Owen opened his presents at home. He chose to go to McDonald's for dinner which was a good choice since it was probably the only place without a line on Valentine's day. Then we went to the Reel Theater to watch the Penguins of Madagascar, which was cute and funny.
The next day we had the neighborhood kids come over to play a few of Aunt Ruby's games. We lucked out with warm weather and set everything up outside. We did an egg race, a game where the kids' wore pantyhose on their heads with a ball in one of the legs to knock over bottles, doughnut eating contest, a whip cream and Cheetos throwing game and a lizard pinata. Then they all ate lizard cupcakes with ice cream and Owen opened a few more presents.
Once we cleaned up the backyard, we headed to the Idaho Aquarium to hang out with the fish. Owen loves that place. He petted the rays, star fish and sharks. They have added more reptiles so we had fun looking at them too. It was a fun filled weekend.
