We weren't lucky enough to have Riley's birthday fall on a "stay home day" but made the most of it. Having it on a Friday is almost as good, right? After getting ready for work and school, the boys and I headed downstairs. Riley was thrilled to see all the birthday goodies waiting for him, many of which had to do with his favorite Buzz Lightyear! It was almost sensory overload for him to take in everything around him.
He wasn't quite sure what to make of his new kid-proof MP3 player, until he found out it plays music. And not just any music. It seems one of the songs was made especially for him . . . "Marshmallows."
Riley has been using a hand-me-down Spiderman lunchbox (by his choice) but once he saw his new Toy Story lunchbox, we had to swap them out so he could take it to school with him.
I took some time off work so I could leave early and surprise Riley at school. They were just finishing up with his birthday treats - ice cream sammies - when I arrived.
