Making Memories and Creating Traditions
It looks like we’ve started a new birthday tradition over here at Casa La Crazy.It started with Nathaniel’s birthday earlier this month. We had talked about going to see the Avengers for his birthday and then he had asked if it was ok if just him and Brandon went to go see it.
Honestly I was totally ok with that idea I thought it was cute and teased them a little about their “man date.” Honestly though I was happy to see the two of them bonding.
Nathaniel also got a bike and then we all went out as a family for dinner. Now if all of us would’ve gone to the Avengers our bill of his birthday would’ve quadrupled. Plus Brandon and him wouldn’t have any of these inside jokes that they keep torturing me with!!!!
Plus we’re missing out on the big theme here. Special one on one time with one of the parents. Whether it’s the bio parent or the step parent. I really was glad Nathaniel picked Brandon.(Even if I did miss out on getting my fill of Robert Downy Jr…I’ll live…this time.)
Why am I bringing up a Bday that happened almost a month ago?Well because my friends in exactly 10 days Casa La crazy has not only ONE birthday but TWO! Yes two in the same day…yours truley is turning the big ol 3-5 and Kenna is turning 11!
Some of you may remember that last year we surprised her with with a trip to Wolf People, a wolf sanctuary where we not only got to see wolves up close and personal but we both got to hold a WOLF PUP….squeeeel!!!!! I think it was one of the highlights of our year.
We still look at each other a squeal(yes it’s the only time either one of us squeals)”We got to hold a baby wolf pup!)
Well now we’re looking at each other and squealing,
“We’re gonna get to hand feed TIGERS!!!!”
Oh yes Kenna decided she wanted to go to Cat Tales for her bday which is a big cat zoo out by where we live and when I looked it up online I saw that you could also have a big cat adventure including……..
Hand Feeding the tigers!!!
So a week from this Friday Kenna has requested that we go out to breakfast,then we’ll head over to Cat Tales and start our big cat adventure!On top of that she has already gotten a scooter for her birthday.
All the other kids are now anxiously awaiting their birthdays so they can have their special birthday date with the parent of their choice.Luckily though birthdays will be on hiatus until August.
I’m thinking this new Birthday Tradition though is one worth keeping.
I GET TO FEED A TIGER!!!!!!
