Yesterday was my son’s 7th birthday. After school, he opened his gifts and then we went on a hike at Torrey Pines. We drive to the top and walk down to the beach. I meant to bring my phone so I could take pictures (it’s so beautiful there) but forgot it in the car.
Everyone stayed at the bottom of the hill and I hiked (here comes the actual hike part) back up. We then went to my son’s favorite restaurant, PF Changs.
We shared some lettuce wraps to start.
Then I had a cup of egg drop soup.
We all shared several dishes for dinner. Chicken Lo Mein:
Chang’s Spicy Chicken (my son’s favorite-this is the reason we go there):
I ate some of each with brown rice.
After dinner we came back to the house to eat the birthday cake I had made.
My son requested the blue frosting. :) The cake turned out pretty good! I’m not the best at cake decorating. I guess I just need practice.
This morning’s breakfast was a toasted English muffin with homemade peanut butter and strawberries.
I took the kids to school and went to spin class.
Lunch was a Greek style salad made up of tomatoes, cucumbers, red onion, feta cheese, Italian seasoning, red wine vinegar and olive oil. I also had some veggies and jalapeno yogurt dip.
I picked the kids up from school and came home. Tonight is Bunco so I need to get ready for that. It will be nice catching up with my friends!
Do you have any traditions that you do on your birthday?
