Heroes in a Halfshell, Happy Birthday!

As any seven-year-old birthday during Spring Break should, Henry's birthday lasted all week.

We started last weekend with a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle-themed family lunch (because we are stuck in the '90's) eating pizza (because that's what Ninja Turtles eat) and a cake (designed and decorated by the birthday boy himself).

The cake is supposed to be a NYC street with Turtles fighting for justice all around. Thank you, Aunt Beth, for that New York City bus you gave us years ago. It made the cake legit.

I wrapped the gifts, then Brian helped decorate, matching each Turtle with the appropriate weapon, a detail that is very important to Henry.

Having family around was the best part, of course. Even Henry would agree.

Thank you, everybody, for helping us celebrate Henry!

the 90's are an awesome place to be stuck in! I totally LOVED the TMNT, too... and actually bought the first two seasons on DVD in college. Glad you guys all had fun!
