rocket cake blasting off

Sunday was party day, and we started off early with a trip to the bowling alley. Not something that we've done before, but it was fun. It didn't matter that it was 10am on a Sunday morning, the fluro lights were on, the music was pumpin' and it could have been 10 o'clock on a Saturday night. Technology has moved along since I last went bowling {about 20 years ago, no joke} and now the computer scores for you, and the gutter guards come up automatically for the kids {but not for the grown-ups, much to Cam's horror}. One game was enough though, and by the end they were ready for some arcade games, and then a quick trip to Maccas.

In the afternoon, we enjoyed a family get-together, where he got the 'mother-load' of his presents... a haul of star wars lego, a new bike and some roller skates {!}

We then followed up with a rocket birthday cake, with sparklers as it's jet flames {at his request} and to top it off, his first tooth came out while he was eating his cake, with his whole family looking on.

So a very exciting day was completed with our first visit from the tooth fairy. All in all, a very exciting and fun day.
