6th Birthday Recap-Part 2

The week of Noah’s birthday was very unusual because of the weather.  On Tuesday, a snow storm came into Georgia, and the kids got sent home from school two hours early.  They were then home Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Noah’s birthday). We had planned to be at Great Wolf Lodge (indoor water park) for Noah’s birthday, but we had to push it off a few days until the weather cleared up. 

So on Noah’s actual birthday, we decorated outside his room and the breakfast table – ready for a surprise Krispy Kreme Breakfast!

IMG_8944My friend, Anne, gave me this streamer idea back when Noah was turning one.  He loves waking up the surprise wall of streamers!

IMG_8946Noah’s birthday was full of sweet treats, and this donut was just the beginning!


IMG_8953Daddy had also been off work since Tuesday afternoon, but on Noah’s birthday, they were called back to work, but with a late start.  We were thankful he was able to stay home a little while in the morning to enjoy the donut party.

IMG_8960Noah got this Busytown game from Garrett, and it was a big hit! We played it for a long time on Friday afternoon!

IMG_5975Noah chose to go to Chick-fil-a for his birthday lunch.  We ate and then he and Garrett played on the indoor playground.

IMG_5976After lunch we went to Sonic for grape slushes! (Are you getting the sugary theme?)

In between all the eating, Noah received several face time calls and regular calls from family and friends wishing him happy birthday. I loved seeing his smile every time he got a call – you all definitely made him feel special! Noah also declared himself “in charge” on his birthday, so (within reason) we did WHATEVER Noah chose to do … if he wanted to play a game, we played it; if he wanted to watch a TV show, we watched it.  It was fun not having to be in charge Winking smile 

Dinner was a relatively last-minute decision because we had thought we were going to be at Great Wolf for Noah’s birthday dinner. When I was telling him about choices of restaurants, I mentioned Golden Corral and the chocolate fountain they advertised.  (Okay, Mommy and Daddy like Golden Corral, too!)

IMG_5988Hungry? Just wait…

IMG_5989Noah’s dinner consisted of a taco, spaghetti, pizza, mac and cheese, corn (2 ways), green beans, mashed potatoes, anything you could put on a stick and dip into the chocolate fountain…oh, and a soft-serve ice cream cone.  He absolutely loved having so many choices!

IMG_5992Garrett enjoyed the diced ham and chocolate cake Winking smile 

IMG_5994Mmmm…chocolate fountain heaven!

We had saved one last gift for after dinner.  This one was from Aunt Gigi and Uncle Jeff:

(Man, this kid has big feet!)

IMG_8974We also got Garrett a pair so he, too, would be ready for Great Wolf Lodge.  They were both so excited they slept with their shoes that night!

Because we had SOOOOO much to eat at Golden Corral for dinner, we decided to bump the cupcake eating to the next day. No worries, it was just as yummy!

IMG_8980Make a wish!


IMG_8983Garrett is hoping for a repeat of last night’s chocolate cake!

As Noah was getting ready for bed on his birthday, he said, “This birthday has been better than awesome!” Well, we can’t ask for much more than that, can we?
