Aidan Outing

Patrick and I took our nephew Aidan out for a birthday celebration on Saturday. We went to Toys R Us and let him walk around to select his gift. He was very methodical and walked all the aisles. It was an interesting study to see how he is used to all toys moving or making a sound. He looked for a button on each toy. After looking throughout the store, we asked him what gift he wanted. He didn't hesitate and walked us back to the Spiderman action figure that kicks and has a web. I thought it was impressive for a four-year-old to be so focused.

We planned to take him to eat after shopping and, as usual, he told us he wasn't hungry. Kid never wants to eat with us. So, we went to a Japanese restaurant that has an hibachi section. He loved it--especially the fire, flying eggs, and volcano. The pictures shows him using chopsticks for the first time in his life. Happy birthday, Aidan!!!
