And we celebrated a lot!!! You saw the pictures from the first celebration in Disneyland with the Walsh's. What a fun day!!! Wednesday night after we got home we ate a delicious St Patrick's day feast with the Pierzchalski's and celebrated with brownies and ice cream. Sorry we made them break their Lenten promise of giving up chocolate...
Then, Thursday night, we had a special dinner at the Firehouse restaurant and let Owen open his gifts from Mike and I.
Grammy and Grandpa came into town for a wedding brunch for the happy newlywed Pierzchalski's in Milwaukee. It was a lovely day and we had a great time.
We talked Grammy into staying a few extra days in Evanston (we had to twist her arm) and she took Owen to Toys 'r Us on Monday for a little birthday shopping trip. In this picture, Owen was pretending to be in a "great big jungle cage." He kept asking me if we could get him a really big cage to go in... Very interesting concept...
We rounded out the festivities with a very small (but very fun) dinosaur birthday party with Owen's friend Eliza and a few other buddies.
The birthday honorees
We did a little dino art project
Let the kids make their own pizzas
And Eliza's mom made this great dinosaur cake
