Jaden's Birthday Dinner

His friends party is still upcoming, but on the night of his birthday Jaden had one request - to eat at Peppers with his favorite people.

And so a couple of weeks ahead of time I reserved the space upstairs, and we all enjoyed having the entire place to ourselves as we celebrated our eight year old.

Our reservations were for 6:00, and we laughed and reminisced as we kept checking the time and looking back on what was going on at that exact time eight years ago. And we celebrated over cupcakes at 7:14 - his exact time of birth.

And we took selfies. Of course.

Someone commented that any selfie with Brandon is a good selfie - he's a cheeser!

We opened gifts - his favorites including his new Lebron James shoes, his underwater aquascope for our summer trips to the river and lake, and his NBA 2K16 PS4 game.

And we sang happy birthday while feasting on two boxes of Scratch cupcakes. I asked them for mostly chocolate in the box because that's what my boy likes.

Happy birthday Jaden! More celebrating ahead!
