Happy Birthday to DadHTP, a great dad and grandpa!
The birthday lunch was held at the very best Thai restaurant in all of the Queen City â€“ Thai Taste on East Boulevard. When I was a kid, we ate at Siam Palace in Miami almost every week and especially for all special occasions, like birthdays. Who doesnâ€™t love Thai?!
Bes Thai restaurant in all of Charlotte makes the best Pad Thai! But of course.
Afterwards, we hit up Discovery Place, a science museum in Uptown. The adults enjoyed it just as much as Henry. We especially liked the machine that levitated a plastic ball in the air with a continuous blast of air.
Look at that little squishy face. <3
Other activities: a build-your-own fort playground, a bed of nails, giant pulleys, and even an indoor rainforest with a turtle, colorful frogs, and other creatures.
Oh, and an aquarium! Henry loves to look at fish.
The museum was so much fun that we bought an annual pass. If youâ€™re ever in Charlotte with your kiddos, I definitely recommend checking it out.
We came home, ate birthday cake, and Dad unwrapped his gifts â€“ a massage gift certificate from Kristien and me. And this shirt from Henryâ€¦
It was easy to make: First, I put a piece of tin foil in the pocket to protect the back of the shirt. Then, I rubbed some puffy pant on Henryâ€™s palm and, after a few practice tries on a piece of paper, pressed his hand into shirtâ€™s pocket. The print was (of course) a little messy, so I outlined it into another color of puffy pant, which tidied it up. I think Dad liked it.
Woohoo Friday! Have a good weekend!
