We'll have to skip the fashions today and go straight for the birthday since we're finally finished celebrating and able to do a recap.
JR always finds a way to spread out his birthday festivities over a few days.
This year he was able to stretch it for 3.
Monday, Granny Sherry took him to lunch at his favorite, Benihanas.
Then Wednesday, the actual birthday day, we started the day with Epic 3D.
(Clearly, this foodie has very broad tastes- Benihanas to IHOP)
Then cake, ice cream, and a balloon fight
(no, not water balloons, they literally just swatted each other with balloons)
with friends from the neighborhood.
And he wrapped up the day with the Astros/Rockies game with the Stenger girls.
(Where he is convinced he, and he alone, started the wave.)
But his birthday wasn't finished yet.
Though we celebrated for an entire day, he still didn't consider any of that his "official" party.
And what did JR ask to do for his birthday?
Well, what any 10 year old boy wants to do...
Take a friend and go to the Boulder Dinner Theatre, of course!
I haven't been to a dinner theater since I was a kid, but I have to say, the food was better than I expected, and the production of Wizard of Oz was top notch.
I knew JR would love it (which he did), but even his friend, Nicolas, said, "I have to admit, this is really good." (referring to the show.)
So we are now officially, officially finished celebrating 10 years of JR.
Though I'm sure he'll somehow stretch his 11th year spectacular into a week.
