Ethan turned 8 on Thursday.
We had the chance to go on a tour of the port of Long Beach that day. All the California cousins were there, which made Ethan's day very special.
He was very happy about getting checked out of school. And enjoyed learning about the cargo shipments and how it all works.
Ethan requested a baked Alaska for his birthday dessert. I don't think he had ever had one before, but heard about one last year and knew thats what he wanted.
And, as is his way-he did all the decorating himself. He decided on an Artic theme. He found and printed off pictures and made his own sign for the cake.
Other birthday requests were German Pancakes for breakfast and Beaurox, Soup and Salad for dinner.
