Although we began the day at the Minneapolis Farmers Market
- Ada didn’t cry this year.
- Liam refused to wear the new pair of sneakers that his mother had bought him. You can see that he was wearing them in the morning (the photo by the tree), but then changing them for his other one’s when he got to school.
- Helena texted me at school to tell me that she needed a protractor for class, so when we went out to eat afterward I gave one to her.
Ada started out her birthday morning by cleaning up her big mess in the house, but once done with that I asked her to come out to the garage to get her bike where she found her birthday present – a balance beam. Liam seemed to enjoy it as well, but wouldn’t do much on it other than hop from the trampoline onto it.
After that we went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts for awhile. In the summer, they have lots of activities outside, but today they had much more than usual. Painting, drawing, board games, lawn games, bubbles, dancing, and more and more.
We did go inside to see what was going on and to do the scavenger hunt. We were confused by the scavenger hunt because it was a bit different than usual, but once we actually read the directions on the front, we got it done pretty quickly.
Ada then took us all to Chipotle for dinner. The rule is that the kid picks a place to go and all she wanted was a cheese quesadilla. But she did get a large one.
Then it was time for cake and to open presents.
