Claire's Birthday! May 5, 2005
We had a wonderful day. Daddy and Claire started out the day with a bike ride/run, then a trip to Friendly's for breakfast. Benjamin and I brought a giant pizza cookie to Claire's classroom in the afternoon. We also brought the alka-seltzer rocket which the kids enjoyed out on the playground. Swimming lessons in the afternoon. Pizza at Romeo's for dinner (where the above picture was taken). Cold Stone Creamery for dessert! And lots of presents to open at home.
Jeff and I gave Claire a "boom box." That's what we used to call portable cd/radios. Do they still call them that? Claire's has really enjoyed listening to music lately. Jeff had rigged up a portable cd player with old speakers from the computer. That worked great, but it was a bit fragile. Claire will be able to operate this one all on her own and choose which music she wants to listen to. We also got her a Disney Classics cd with great tunes from Mulan, Hercules, Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, etc. We are avoiding Brittany Spears, Jessica Simpson and all other pop princesses for as long as possible!
