Hard to believe that SEVEN years ago today, Soren was born. Today is a school day but that is still special. He gets to be the line leader (at the front of the line) to go outside twice and to go to GAA. He also gets to wear a rosette, picks out a card and brings in sweeties to share wth the class. Then after school, I’ll take him to the toy store to buy a gift and then we’ll have dinner at the Golden Elephant in Sutton Cross.
At Soren’s request we ate out a the Golden Elephant – which was comical in many ways but the food is so good – best Asian we’ve had in Europe! Though you pay a great premium for eating in so we’ll stick with take-way in the future.
When we got home, despite being VERY sugared up from the coca cola (which I never allow and did) and the surprise ice cream they gave him (and sang to him) we had cake (well two cakes!).
After the game, which the blue team won (score card was funky to read), they moved into the Zoo area which is a ball pit section. They were a bit big for it, but still had fun. Soren did get smashed in the face by a pal by accident in a run away colision but it was only a brief 5 minute delay. Maebh and her two friends loved it here… this is where they spent their two hours.
Finally with 11 starving kids they were off to eat their lunch and have cake – this was a bit crazy and loud but they had loads of laughs.
This section of boys is what I labeled as the WILD boys… the poor teacher!!
And to end the party was the cake!!
Here you open the presents at home…. which he enjoyed doing. He has almost enough to buy his second, wireless remote control for his PS3!
I have already heard so many of the kids loved the laser tag they want their party there next year, including Soren. I think as they get older, bowling downtairs could be really fun too. We shall see what next year brings… being a late January child – indoor is our only option.
