So after our fun doctor’s appointment and yummy breakfast we left work early!! We love leaving work early! Then we headed to Benihana’s for dinner… and MAN we reallllly love that place.
The only issue we …welll I had.. was the tables. Definitely not designed for pregnancy eating. It took me a lot longer to eat than normal because I couldn’t keep bending over to take a bite.
But anyway…… Here’s the birthday boy with his birthday Ice Cream. (Another girl at the table was having her birthday dinner too. You could just tell that her family was LOADED! She started opening presents.. the presents she got that night were probably worth more than our car!! :) kinda kidding.. Then the dad in his fancy clothes and fancy accessories asks.. “So where are your presents??” I explained he already got them.. I just didn’t tell him this was his present!!)
I was really excited for the ice cream.. the table next to us got this really yummy looking strawberry ice cream.. and they brought us this.. I tasted it.. and YUCK.. it was soooo gross. I assume it was green tea. But man it was gross..and gritty ..and gross… Aaron actually ate it and liked it.. Yuck.. I can still taste and feel it in my mouth.
And well.. this is the best self portrait we got from the restaurant.. just pretend it isn’t blurry! I need to get the Polaroid of us that they took scanned.. it was pretty cute! Maybe I’ll put this year and last year for a little flash back!
Like I said.. not having a camera makes you forget when to take pictures. The first thing I wanted to take a picture of was the tigers. These were the fatest, laziest tigers I’ve ever seen in my life. They did no fun tricks, it took almost everything they had to hoist their fat butts up on their stools. They basically did some trick that Riddick could have masters.. Sit… Lay.. shake.. typical dog tricks! And that one in the back was soo funny. Every time he was supposed to be sitting all pretty on his stool he would lounge out on 2 stools and take a little nap! They reminded me of my parents cat who just can’t be bothered to do things!
And then there were this elephant butts!! Aren’t they soo cute? My favorite part of the circus is when the elephants walk around and hold each other’s tales.. then there are always the babies in the back they can’t catch up to grab the tail in front of them.. this time.. that happened! And this other little elephant kept whipping his tale around so the other one could never get it! It was pretty funny.
Oh..and pregnancy brain totallykicked in.. about 3 times during the circus I couldn’t for the life of me remember what these were called.. I kept having to ask Aaron what those big gray things we called.. He looked at me like I was nuts every time! :)
And the set of self portraits.. it was pretty dark.. but the flash makes us look scary..so instead we get blurry!
I liked this one better.. but Aaron didn’t like it because I wasn’t smiling.. I was trying to avoid smiling too hard and creating 19 chins (I have one of those pictures too!)
So this is the best we get… but It looks like Aaron is going to attack the camera…
Oh..and one more picture!!
Babies first time to the circus!!! And you bet, if I ever get around to scrap booking.. there will be a page for his first trip!! Most of the time I had a circus of my own in my stomach. He doesn’t love loud noise with a lot bass. (please also note pre-pregnancy jeans stretched to the max at almost 7 and a half months!!! I just couldn’t bring my self to wear the pair of bigger jeans I bought for this winter. They are still way to big and baggy and frumpy…)
My favorite birthday memory would be driving down to the circus.. Aaron was talking about how much fun he had at the last circus and how his favorite parts where the parts when they did tricks with the dogs and cats! Dog and cats!! This boy was more impressed with the dogs and cats than the lady handing by her hair… the guy getting shot out of the cannon.. the motorcycles in the metal ball thing.. lazy tigers.. or those one big gray things!!! Next year we’re just going to go to petsmart!!! :)
Oh.. I do have one more post.. I’ll have to take a picture of the present my parents sent him..
Happy Birthday babe.. I can’t believe you’re so old! :)
Just kidding.. I can’t believe we’re so old!! :)
