Birthday Dinner and Gifts

We went to Outback Steakhouse for Rece's birthday dinner. Mostly because they have a Gluten Free menu for Tony. But YUM! However we learned when we got there that they don't sing for birthdays. Great for an adult's birthday, but not so for a 2 year old. So we had a nice dinner and we sang for him. He just LOVES when people are singing. We even sang twice because now everytime someone sings Happy Birthday he asks for more. Then we came home and opened gifts. He had no interest in this because his slide was still sitting in the middle of the living room, so he went down the slide about 6 times before we finally made him open gifts. He threw a little bit of a fit (as seen in the picture 3) but we eventually got through the 7 gifts we had for him. Well they weren't all from us. A few from people that can't be at his party. He got some books, aquadoodle minimats, his potty, a step stool for the bathroom and ball pit balls that are eventually going with his slide.

Hey - I think I asked when his birthday was so I could see if it was the same day as Faith's! But just a day off!!

They used to sing at Outback. I worked there out of college for like 4 days! But if they don't sing anymore, I will keep that in mind. I HATE people singing to me.

That last pic is a riot!!!

Happy birthday Baby Rece!! I have so enjoyed watching you grow. Thank you so much for sharing your life with us. You're like a little part of our family.

Big hugs to you!!

Holli, Baby Faith and Nate Nate
