Mitchell's birthday festivities

The whirlwind birthday fun has ended! We had a fun dinner with Grandma Donna and Papa John last night. Mitchell was very excited about the steak and potato dinner! The bowling party was also a success today. Matt, me, and 11 boys under the age of 9. Crazy! The boys all had a lot of fun. Mitchell was pretty excited about a lot of his gifts, but when I asked him what his favorites were, he said "The Pokemon stuff, the shoes (Converse high-tops), the Brain Quest questions, and the popcorn!" One of his friends gave him a gift card to Blockbuster with a tub of microwave popcorn and he was pretty excited about it.
Here are some pictures from last night and today.
This shirt is from the Mitchell, IL volunteer fire department. A friend from work whose brother is a volunteer firefighter got it for me.
For dessert, I made individual molten chocolate cakes. They were awesome! They had gooey chocolate centers....YUM.

Mitchell laying in our bed, reading one of the many books he got for his birthday. He's just like I was/am...he reads super fast and will read a book over and over again.
