Alex's Birthday

We got to Austin, today, to celebrate Alex's 6th birthday this afternoon.

This is a relatively new rest area an hour or so north of Austin that we think is really neat.

Nothing to do with Alex's birthday, but a neat new Texas place!

Arrion showed us her garden... beautiful day, by the way. Start with herbs...!

And, the onions, zucchini, green beans, tomatoes!

Ok, a birthday photo!

A rainbow sherbet and white cake birthday ice cream cake - cannot beat that!!

Alex got lots of different small and large lego kits - this was the City center that he really wanted:

But, what he really wanted was the DS! Oh, it was behind Mom's door.... 

I think he was happy - what do you think??  ;-)

It was a very good day!!  ;-)

You know I love the rest stop photo! Was it real sherbet on the cake or all icing?? And it looks like Alex liked the DS game..a little bit ;-P

The cake was two-thirds sherbet and one third white cake. Quite good. Small cake, so that was good, as well!
