Bradens birthday was quiet and fun. It was just the three of us, which doesnt happen often. We wanted to wake Braden up for his birthday, but he doesnt like to be woken up, and we dont like to wake up early enough to wake him up, so it worked out for all of us and Braden woke us up to make him our Christensen birthday tradition, Strawberry Waffles. They were yummy as usual, and Braden experienced ice cream for breakfast for the first time. Daddy left for work, and after a good run, Braden took a nap, and then we headed to the park for lunch and playtime. We had a good time, and the weather was nice, until it started getting hot and humid...what the?! Then it was off to the store for a last minute birthday buy. Yup, bought my kid a present last minute. We couldnt decide what to get him alright. (It seems as if at this age, we pick what we want him to have. It works out great for us, and we end up with all of the cool baby gear we want!) Then it was back home for another nap, and waiting for Daddy to get home. When Dad got home, Mom took a nap and Braden and Dad went to get Papa Murphys, our favorite, Yum!! And Braden didnt complain. Then off to the park for some birthday play time, and then home for presents and Bradens first ice cream cone!
