A Truly Awesome Birthday

I have decided that I am no longer going to get older. HA HA HA Wouldn't that be wonderful, but such is life and mine has tacked on another year. Tyson woke me up by singing "Happy Birthday to Mommy". He had made me 4 different kinds of drawings and attached a sucker to each of them as my birthday gifts. I love these kinds of gifts. I had to quiet a cry because of his kindness towards his momma! Vaughn had the day off, but had to work the night shift, so all of us spent a day at the YMCA pool soaking up the sun and the water. Then it was an early dinner at Wok Hay in Turkey Creek. It is a new Asian restaurant that just opened up and I wanted to try it out.

Tyson loved the fact that he figured out how to use chopsticks. It took almost the whole time we were there, but he did it. However, he didn't actually eat much of his food. He said the teriyaki chicken didn't taste like "mom's" so he didn't want to eat it. It was nice to hear that he likes my cooking but, on the other hand, it was a waste of food. Thank goodness for To-Go boxes.

And here we have our little princess making her attempt at the usage of chopsticks. She was the entertainment of the evening. I had to borrow her chopsticks to show Tyson how to use them and she was less than pleased. She grabbed them out of my hand, while simultaneously knocking over her FULL glass of Sprite, sending it flying all over the floor beneath the table. Vaughn was steaming and I was laughing. "What else is new." This happens at home, during a meal, at least once a day. Why should eating at a restaurant be any different? (: So....we ate our meal with our feel stuck to the floor in Sprite. Oh well. It made for a memorable day.
