As most of you know, Griffin sleeps "late" just like we like to on the weekends. So, I was a bit shocked when he woke up at 6:30 a.m. on his birthday. He woke me up and asked if we could go to Nonna and Poppa's and fly his new remote control helicopter. I told him that it was too early to be up and that Nonna and Poppa were still sleeping. He told he that he was still tired, so maybe he'd rest. At 8:15 a.m. he was up again and brought me my cell phone to call Nonna and Poppa to see if they were awake. I told him that I thought we shoudl go out to the pancake place for breakfast for his birthday. He insisted that since he was the birthday boy he got to pick what he wanted to do all day long (I told him this leading up to his birthday) and he wanted to go to Nonna and Poppa's and wanted Nonna to make him pancakes and sausage. So, I called. Sure enough, Nonna and Poppa were up for the idea! So, at 9:30 we rolled on over to their home, and didn't leave until 9:30 at night!! Here's some snapshots of Griffin's great birthday! He had a blast in the lake, on the slip and slide, flying his helicopter and swimming.
