Several months ago, Briggs told me that he wanted a red birthday party with Lightning McQueen cupcakes. For the months following he never detoured away from wanting that exact thing! If anyone else would ask him what he was going to do for his birthday, he'd say the same thing! I think we have a kid who knows what he likes and is not wishy-washy! Except in the food/eating department! So, Briggs got exactly what he wanted! Red Cupcakes and Lightning McQeen! And it turned out great! He was so excited to see the cupcakes. I think he gasped, then grinned from ear to ear! So sweet and easy to please!
Briggs turned four years old on October 15th! We had a fun day celebrating! We kept it simple that day because we had planned a bigger friends party for him the following Sunday. He is just now understanding the excitement of a birthday. Piper and I were awake before him getting breakfast ready and he ran out to the kitchen with a big smile on his face because he knew it was the big day!! He was all smiles most of the day!
That evening, we invited Grandma & Grandpa over for pizza and brownies! Leonardo decided it was time to show up for dessert!
Michael had a class to attend in Denver for 1 1/2 days so we made a family trip out of it! The last time we flew with both kids, Piper was three and Briggs wasn't even one! So it was a new experience for Briggs. They did really well traveling, going through the airport, etc. We flew Southwest so Briggs was adamant to carry around his personal Southwest jet toy that Michael purchased for him a long time ago!
Our first morning in Denver began really early! Both kids were up before six because of the excitement of vacation! Michael went to his class and we went to Denver Biscuit Company for Breakfast! Yum!! I wish we'd have gone back for the cinnamon rolls!
I always forget that being in the hotel room is just as exciting to them as going on an adventure! The kids were hyper throughout our stay!
