We have been doing a slow burn birthday celebration for Frugal Boy for the past week that culminated with a trip to his grandparents house.
On Friday night we made sugar cutouts.
Then on Monday he got a cupcake.
That night he also got to open a few of his cards.
Then we built a snowman. His name might have been Olaf.
Olaf is about the size of a snowball now thanks to the warm weather we have had over the last couple of days.
Then the real fun began when we went up to Grandma and Grandpa’s house this weekend. His Aunts helped make a four layered cake.
It was a pretty awesome cake.
It even came with a side of ice cream. How *cool* is that?!
Frugal Boy had fun experiences, such as the train show we went to on Saturday. His striped bib overalls fit in perfectly.
There were three gymnasiums and a cafeteria all filled with train setups and trains for sale. Many of the displays were interactive and included buttons that kids and adults could press to activate different models and gadgets.
Other highlights included playing with the dog, going for tractor rides, and playing by Grandma’s rules (which are far more lenient than Mom and Dad’s) 😉
Here he is with Grandpa. He was really upset that he didn’t get to say bye to the tractor, and Grandpa was nice enough to take him down to the shed so he could.
Shae and I did the boring birthday things, a basket of fruit and a 529 contribution. Thank you to everyone that helped make his week a little more jovial.
