Charles turned seven on Sunday! He got a bike from Scott and I and money and books from grandparents. We have a few birthday traditions. One of which is that we open family presents at breakfast. So we did that while breakfast was cooking. Another tradition is that the birthday person gets to plan the menu for the day. We had pancakes and sausage for breakfast, Mr. Pings Secret Ingredient Noodle Soup for dinner and an ice cream cake (all ice cream and toppings, no actual cake) for dessert.
Charles even offered to help make dinner.
And the last birthday tradition is that during dinner, we go around the table and each person says something nice about Charles (or whoever's birthday it is that we're celebrating).
