Normally Michael's birthday falls on Labor Day weekend and we take advantage of the three day weekend to head out of town to celebrate. This year his birthday was smack in the middle of the week and we needed to use the three day weekend to do more work on the house. So poor Mike had to spend his birthday working, where people in the office made some fun birthday decorations featuring his lovely face. Then he met the boys and I at Disneyland so he could take advantage of getting his free "Fun Card" as part of this year's promotion of getting in free on your birthday. If you already get in for free because you have a season pass, then Disney gifts you with a Fun Card in the dollar amount of a one day pass into Disneyland. They just raised prices, so it's no small gift on Disney's part!
We rode on the Indiana Jones Attraction (it was Daddy's choice) and then we ate at the Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney. We only go there about once a year, and every time we do, Mike asks if he can get the chocolate Volcano. I always say no, because it's so huge for one person (I can't eat chocolate, it gives me miserable migraines). Well that and the fact that it costs a fortune! But this time we ordered it and Michael and the boys ate about half of it, taking the rest home to eat later.
Happy Birthday, Daddy! We love you!
