On Friday, we went out to dinner at Boston's Pizzeria. We used to always go out to eat here for the tech dinners when we lived in Denver. It was such a fun memory to go there again.
On Saturday, we went to Dorney Park. It started out really fun but the day ended with us filing a complaint at Guest Services. There were some employees who were extremely oblivious and rude.
On Sunday, we celebrated Alex's birthday. The cake did not turn out as well as I was hoping. I had very limited decorating supplies (one decorating tip and only butter knives to spread the frosting). Something didn't seem right about trying to feed Alex good food for a year and then as soon as he turned one giving him a big fat chocolate cake so we made an apple spice cake that had no eggs or sugar in it.
He was much more timid than we were expecting. It looked like he was trying to pace himself and eat the entire thing. Only a few crumbs ended up on the ground. When we first placed the cake in front of him, he looked at us like, "Wait, can I touch it?" It was very cute.
In case you can't tell, it is a computer. I think it looked better in person. Or at least I can say that because you didn't see it in person so you wouldn't know... He looked like a smurf. But then we gave him a bath and he was so fresh and so clean!
He didn't really know what to do with the presents. In true Alex fashion, he was mostly interested in the paper. He would put it in his mouth and then pull it out and try to feed it to us. We gave him plastic golf clubs and a plastic golf "bag." Once he saw that, he wouldn't touch anything else. He is always walking around with those golf clubs in his hands.
For Family Home Evening on Monday we went to batting cages and miniature golfing. Sam ended five over par and I was 10 over par. They had tons of water fountains and they were all blue! I was kind of weird looking.
Alex ate some ice cream even though he didn't want anything to do with it on his birthday!
