Birthday Dinner!

Every year on Landon's Birthday we let him pick where he wants to eat. This is the 4th year that he has picked The Rainforest Cafe. We love eating there! It's expensive (and about an hour away) so we don't go unless it's for something special.

If you visit my blog regularly (or know us in person) you know how much we love going to eat there. It's so much fun and we always have a great time.

Every time we go we also take him to the Disney store and let him pick out one thing. It can be anything he wants. So far he has picked really cool toys each time. It's so fun to follow him around the store and just let him be. Once he has looked at everything twice he picks what he wants.

Huge butterfly on the tree right above our table. It's wings moved which made it even cooler! lol.

My boys. I always try to get good pictures of them wherever we go to send with Justin when he leaves....and I love having tons of them together for Landon to look at when his Daddy is gone.

Every time we go Landon wants this drink. It's a huge slushie and it comes with a toy in the bottom. He also always wants to massive volcano brownie for dessert.
We had the most amazing time last night. It's always so special to me to go out as a family and letting Landon decide makes it even better. These are the things that I hold so close when Justin is gone. We make the most of the time we have together so the time apart isn't so bad.

Oh, fun! You guys wanna take me out for MY birthday, too? :) We love The Rainforest Cafe. We went to the one in Orlando when we went to Disney on our honeymoon this past October. Yum. :) Happy Birthday, Landon!

I thought our boys would love that place when we took them back in Washington, but they didn't. We sat near the gorillas and they scared the pants off our four year old. We tried again when we were at Disney, and it was another no-go. The only thing that kept the little guy entertained was the fish tank, which one of us had to constantly take him to see to keep him calm.

I think it's really just too loud for them; they are very sensitive to noise. We liked it, though, and that volcano brownie is awesome!
