The Monday before we left Nashville, we had a birthday party for Alex at an inflatables place called BounceU. He will celebrate his fourth birthday in Portugal, but we wanted to give him an opportunity to have fun with some of the friends he's made at Hillsboro in the last few months before we left.
The kids enjoyed an hour in the bounce room, followed by 30 minutes in the party room. Snacks and drinks were served, followed by cake. Alex requested a firetruck cake, and it was pretty yummy! Although I enjoyed doing his party and his cake myself last year, it was nice this year, especially since we're in the middle of moving overseas, to have someone take care of all the details for me. We'll probably have a family party when we get to Portugal, and Alex has already asked if I can make him a Toby cake. (Toby is one of the Thomas trains.) We'll see, sweet boy. Let's get to Portugal first and see if I'm still sane!
Happy Fourth, Alex!
