In March, Alec turned 12!! He wanted his friend Steven to come stay for a few days and do some "fun stuff" while he was here. Steven came over on a Sunday night and stayed until Thursday around lunch time. Alec's birthday was on Tuesday and he was so excited that he woke up early for his presents.
He really liked his Star Wars birthday card. His favorite thing is to open presents.
His reaction to his requested Lego set.
Alec had requested to visit the Tupelo Automobile Museum, so we went!
The kids really enjoyed looking at all the neat cars. This was one that Richard Petty drove for his 200th victory in NASCAR.
All the kids were really excited to see a Delorean car (like the one in Back to the Future). They were looking in the back for the flux capacitor -- HAHA!!
Alec really liked this one!
The Model T Ford was a favorite for all of them.
We went to Olive Garden for lunch.
Alec was born on our anniversary 12 years ago, so this was our anniversary dinner too!! Happy 19th, Honey!!
We went to Gigi's cupcakes to pick up some cupcakes. We got there and decided we had to eat some there. This is mine -- a Samoa, which has my favorite Girl Scout cookie on top!! Yummy!!
Some of the ones we brought home!! They are so good, but not good for your waistline!
The kids wanted to go to Healthworks!
It was a lot of fun, but I think they realized that it was not quite as fun as they remembered. They are growing up and not as easily amused as they used to be.
Alec had requested this kind of cake at Nonie's -- it is a DIVINE chocolate cake, complete with four different kinds of candy and ganache in between the layers.
