Happy Birthday Little Man!

Four years ago today our lives were changed for the better in this house. Austin Robert Runchey came into the world a whopping 5 lbs, 10 oz. He's still as skinny as can be, but he's full of spirit and we're going to use some of his energy to celebrate in style this week (several times)!
We already celebrated once in West Bend. Last night Rob and I took him to the Rainforest Cafe for dinner. He loves this place and wants to go into the store every time we're at the mall. He has had his eye on a big snake there for almost a year. Last night he finally got it.

That's him, with his snake, under "Tracy the Tree"....that's really the tree's name. I hear it is a very wise tree.

He was not a big fan of the singing that accompanied his dessert, but in general, he really enjoyed the restaurant, particularly when the monkeys started moving around.

Today he wanted to wear his brontosaurus shirt because he is having a "Brontosaurus Birthday party" on Saturday. I think he thinks if he wears the shirt today, then his party will be today. No dice. But, since I made that shirt for him, I will let him wear it every day this year to make sure he gets his use out of it!

Happy Birthday Austin!!!
