Okay, so this post is actually going up about three months after my actual birthday… oops.
Something very different from usual was that I had the day before off due to those dental appointments.
So when I can into work on my actual birthday I found something waiting for me at my desk?!
What’s funny is they had delivered them the day before, against my mom’s delivery instructions, so halfway into the afternoon I received a call from the front desk and they gave me ANOTHER candy boquet!?
Hey, that works.
Meanwhile, at home Redflare insisted on getting a picture of me…
And because the kids get offended when we parents don’t follow the same traditions as they receive there was cake.
How old was I as of late May? Old enough to no longer be in the primary marketing demographic of 18-35.
I think this picture came from Mother’s Day. Everyone piled up and Redflare managed to get a shot of her with all our babies.
Later Thunderer would help make some brownies for the special day with supervision from Little Miss.

Redflare has two older brothers that have been on her mind a really long time.
Seventeen years to be exact.
And as of April of this year, her search was over.
To celebrate, and to share a picture of herself with him (one is no longer with us) she took a couple of rare selfies.
With that in mind, I present shock:
With TJ out of commission the egg decorating didn’t go as normally as years past, but the littles still seemed to appreciate coloring some.

Up we go to another Children’s Museum post!
I tried to tell Thunderer about putting her eggs in a single basket but she was having too much fun with the chicken coop.
Of course, once they weren’t giving her any more eggs it was time to lock them all away.
While Newbie was happy to chill in the beaver dam…
Thunderer didn’t want to share.
Newbie appreciated studying the beaver skull too.
And also being impressed by the impact those teeth can have!
Finally it was time to put on a show…
Admire the fish.
They all approved of the trip and had fun.
So I think she had an awesome birthday.

Newbie was the star of the show on her birthday at the Children’s Museum and she knew it.
The others got into what is becoming their usual antics there too though.
I’m not sure what the attraction is for Thunderer and the sand, but it’s where she went first again.
Meanwhile Superman was sure to return to the lego-like blocks.
They moved around quite a bit though. Thunderer decided on a new project eventually.
Superman joined Newbie in the grocery area too.
And even took after Redflare and didn’t burn any food for his older brother.
The teenagers were a great help in keeping an eye on the little ones.
Can’t tell they’re related at all can you?
There are a few more pictures to go at the Children’s Museum. I think I can work out another post.

As I mentioned before, there’s some birthday clumping going on.
Little Newbie went from this…
If you can’t tell, her request for her birthday was to head to the local Children’s Museum.
She played hard and had a great birthday I think.
She also helped make sure Redflare was well fed.
This little Newbie had a very good birthday. Enough so that I think I’ll save some more of these pictures from her day for another post.
