We've been in Concord almost 2 weeks now and have gotten a countdown to the big birthday celebration a couple times a day from Grant. I think he was a little bit excited and anxious for the big day to arrive. Well, today was the big day. He spent the night with us in the motorhome and we finally ( his words ) went to his home to begin the celebration.
Aunt Barbara & Uncle Henry showed up and Cousins Ryan & Dee came a little later. We sat around and chatted for a while and then had his special dinner of Tacos and such with all the fixins. As usual I ate too much and paid for it later. Ooops, this isn't about me. He was getting more and more anxious by the minute and finally the cake was cut and devoured by everyone. Still not the big moment for him, he wanted the gifts opening session to begin. He only asked for a few things like a watch, Beetle shirt, legos and Star Wars stuff and that is what he got. A lot of gifts from the Hagadorns, Clarks, and the McClures. You would have thought it was Christmas morning with the number of gifts. Keep in mind that figurines, legos and such aren't that expensive, but he got a big haul to say the least.
After the gift opening everyone began to leave and then we took him back to the MH with us for another sleep over. He was plumb tuckered out by the time we got back and fell asleep a few minutes after he got in bed. We were right behind him and hit the hay early for us. Tired and stuffed would best describe the feeling.
