Gabe had a great day on his actual birthday. We had Chinese (his choice, of course) and a giant cookie cake for dessert*. Afterwards, he was very excited to go in the driveway and find his present, a new bike. Even though it is a little bigger (and intimidating), Gabe was very excited to get a bike with handlebar brakes and a kick stand. It is going to be a great summer!
*To make the cookie cake, I used regular cookie dough and spread it out in two 9inch cake pans. We used ice cream as the holder for the candles instead of frosting.
