We decided to take the family holiday this year whilst including William’s birthday. He was happy with that. We plonked his birthday smack bang in the middle of it. He asked that we could do whatever he wants on his birthday, so we said fine, we can do that. He originally wanted to go to the beach but then changed his mind in the end, he wanted time with me, so Toby took the other kids to the beach in the afternoon and William and I took a spa and relaxed together.
First up came the gift opening.
William got a Redfoo top as one of his gifts and so was excited to do some dancing with his top on, to which his sister was excited about also. They both enjoy dancing. Played with some of his gifts then the kids headed out to the large pillow for some jumping. About 30mins in William came back screaming when he got to the door I was shocked to see blood running down his face all over his hands and going down the glass door. I then screamed for Toby as I don’t do well with the kids hurt. We found out that there were boulder rocks near the pillow and kids were throwing them about. William was sitting down near they were doing it and it bounced off a pile of rocks and went straight into Williams head. We then had to take him to the hospital which was a hour away and by the time he was seen and fixed up the whole morning was gone. Not my preferred way to spend the morning of my kids birthday. Thankfully things got better as the day progressed.
We did some R/C driving in the afternoon with Williams new R/C car, it works so good, and goes so fast, we all wanted a turn. And we’d brought TJ’s down for him to play with also. Now Gigi and Rocky want one, naturally.
Since we weren’t going to be making one of our homemade cakes this round, not being at home. William ended up choosing a Sponge Bob cake which I normally wouldn’t allow since I don’t like Sponge Bob, but alas it was that or girl cakes so I let it go. It was good to know after eating the cake, the kids said “we prefer the cakes you and dad make, mum!” Aww shucks thanks kids…
