RJ and Mike got briefly mesmerized by the Hot Wheels display. We also checked out Pokemon, Star Wars, Legos, and everything that wasn't in a pink box. Or in the baby aisle. Because we are 6 now (and 12! I cannot BELIEVE our little RJ is 12!!!!)
After much deliberation, Mike got a box of Pokemon cards and RJ got a Star Wars game for the Xbox. Of course, they lobbied hard for a "Rated M" game, but I ix-nayed that. I generally get in trubs for what I let the boys buy (i.e., weapons of some sort), but I was determined to make wise choices this year. Much to their chagrin.
We then went to the Red Lobster for a birthday lunch. RJ is a seafood fiend. And a teenager (almost). Here's what he ate:
- Bowl of clam chowder
- Cheese biscuit
- 8 crab legs (and this boy is all business when it comes to crab legs. He did not leave ONE scrap of meat)
- Ice Cream Sundae, and 1/2 of Mikey's sundae
- and a giant Snickers Bar
It was a fun day, and the boys were so well mannered! Even at a "nice" restaurant, they were very polite and well behaved. And remembered to thank me for their gifts and a fun time. The twins and I are planning our special day out for their birthday next month.
PS I forgot to get a picture of the 4 boys so you could see how big they are Car. I'll try to get one asap!
