Austin’s 4th birthday came and went with no attention from me. Now that just isn’t right!So, just the two of us took a trip to the only place I know of that carries birthday presents, Wal Mart. OK, I agree there are better places to go to find interesting presents, but time was short and Wal Mart was there, and Austin really isn’t very picky.
On the way to the store we talked about what he wanted and he told me he really likes Sponge Bob (gosh I wouldn’t have guessed that…)
We find a really cool Sponge Bob tote but for some reason Speedy caught his eye. Ok, I’m cool with that.
Looking around just a bit more to make sure we haven’t missed something important and what do we spy? Sponge Bob Leggo’s! A must have. We are in heaven now. But we have a problem. Austin thought he was going home with Grandma. After all, that is the way it usually works. Oh dear.
But never fear – a compromise is near. We spot Dairy Queen on the horizon. An ice cream treat is almost as good as going home with Grandma… right? Not really, but it worked this time.
A nice thick chocolate milkshake does the trick. We first try a straw but quickly recognize the danger of a nasty brain freeze coming on.
So we substitute a spoon and all is well in the world.This was a fun couple of hours. Happy Birthday Austin!
