Hee. Look at the birthday crown the teachers made for him.
Getting ready to eat the cake!
The favors. Ethan helped design the airplane logo. It has to have the rainbow tail which I don't think was ever manufactured but he prefers that design over the actual official Airbus A380 logo.
Bye bye to his favorite teachers, Ms. Sarah and Tan Laoshi! He promised them he would come back and visit often (after his request that they follow him to Kindergarten was proven to be impossible).
We did a present box this year, where we piled all the presents together and had him pick and guess what each one was while blindfolded.
The first one he picked out (well, I think he snuck a peek!):
His Airbus! After which he promptly lost interest in all his other gifts and didn't bother to even see what they were. Since the other items got no love I thought I would at least show them:
Second favorite item was probably the colored tape since we do a lot of embellishing in this household.
First action item was to redecorate the tail design to be that of the rainbow tail. It's all in the details peeps.
After a big pancake breakfast, we headed out for our special outing of the day to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum.
The pond in the peace garden.
Entering the pyramid!
Deciphering the Rosetta stone.
Code of Hammurabi.
Ethan's favorite pyramid is Zosher's step pyramid. This picture shows how it changed from it's original design.
One of the seven statues of Cleopatra.
Requisite big headed shot.
Then it was off to Ethan's favorite restaurant, Shabuway, for lunch and then more Airbus playing at home. I hope he enjoyed his special day - happy birthday to my sweet sweet cutie!
