Our birthday traditions around here have had to morph and change with the size of our family. For birthdays, the whole family used to go out to the restaurant of the birthday girl/boy's choice. But, as our family grew, that option became much more unaffordable. So, now, the kids pick just Rainman or I to go out for a special meal. I have to be honest here, Rainman is usually the parent chosen for these excursions (probably because he gets to spend a lot less time with the kids than I do). This year, I was chosen for all the April birthdays (I think they felt sorry for me!)
Then, it was home for presents. A-man, as usual, gave a thoughtful gift of One Direction trading cards.
L-girl and A-girl got a few combined/shared birthday gifts this year. Their first one was tickets for the 3 of us to go see Legally Blonde: The Musical at our local community theater.
Happy birthday by beautiful young lady.
