We tried to talk Daniel into a party for his birthday but he really just wanted to go spend a night in a hotel and do something. So we stayed a night in San Francisco and visited the Exploritorium. First we checked into our Fisherman’s Wharf hotel and went for dinner at the Rainforest Cafe. After eating and Dan’s getting a birthday sundae, we headed to Pier 39 and watched sea lions and rode the carousel. On the way back the hotel we stopped at Boudin’s Bakery to get some of Dan’s favorite food, bread. The next morning, after getting lost and having to cross the Golden Gate Bridge twice, we headed to the Exploritorium which is a hands on science museum at the Palace of Fine Arts near the bridge. After most of the day there we came home for cake and presents. Here’s some pix.
So for Elizabeth’s birthday, she decided to have a party at our house and invite some of her friends. There was a Hello Kitty cake, Hello Kitty wrapping paper, Hello Kitty gift bags, Hello Kitty rings, a pin the bow on the Hello Kitty game, Hello Kitty coloring books, well, you get the picture. A very fun and very pink party with lots of girls having lots of fun. Pics are here.
Dan and I went on his class field trip to the Chabot Space and Science Center in the Oakland hills. I was amazed at how much some of the employees really enjoy explaining the properties of the moon and the workings of some of the center’s telescopes. Dan spent the whole day learning about the climate, space, the moon, and astronomy. A few pictures are here.
Today I had a growth spurt, and I turned six. I went to school, and my class made me a birthday book. A birthday book is book that people get on their birthday. It has birthday wishes from my friends in it. They wrote them and drew pictures too. I shared Hello Kitty scooter pies with the whole class. Some people didn’t want them, but all of the people liked them. Then I came home and I played upstairs. Then Daniel wanted me to go downstairs. Then I had my birthday cake. It was a Hello Kitty birthday cake. It was very yummy. Then I opened presents. I got a backpack and I got boots. I also got Cutants. Daniel gave me a vet kit. I gave my animals shots. I’m going to dinner at my favorite restaurant, Chiptotle. Then I’m going get something for Daniel at Panera like a croissant. It was a fun day, and it was my birthday.
