What a wonderful birthday Evan had....and now he's officially nine! He likes to open one present at each meal, so breakfast brought the opening of Aunt Carla and Aunt Sheila's gift....new sports cards with a binder and special pages to organize them. He's having a blast with those!
After lunch, we headed into Pittsburgh to meet one of our favorite families to hang out with (the Agnews) at the Carnegie History Museum. Evan wanted to see the new whale exhibit, but of course we dropped into many other exhibits as well. On the way home, we stopped at the new Giant Eagle market place in Robinson for a special treat....fresh made crepes (Nutella and whipped cream for the kids; prosciutto, asparagus, and Brie for the adults....YUM!) Then home for dinner, unwrapping of the family gift - new little league baseball mitt, balls and bat for when he starts baseball in the fall. We all sat down to part of a Star Wars movie before heading to bed....wonderful but exhausting day.
Since we are all about food, Evan chose all meals for the day....so the menu was -
Breakfast - Chocolate chip pancakes
Lunch - Tuna salad in pita pockets
Dinner - Spaghetti with shrimp and dessert was carrot cake cupcakes
