Yesterday my sweet boy, Bennett, turned 5! We had one of those days that will go down as perfection in my books. I'm going to remember it for a long time. Jon was out of town and I'm sad that he missed it. (He'll be here for his actual party. Not to worry.) We started out his birthday week on Sunday with a trip to the cereal aisle at Target. I started a yearly tradition last year with him where they get to choose whatever box of cereal they want to eat that week. My mom asked if I was living out my childhood dreams through my children. Yes. Yes, I am. So he ate his Trix for breakfast and then around 11 when we were all loaded up and off for the day, we drove through Krispy Kreme for a birthday donut. They chose chocolate with sprinkles. I chose original glazed (two, if we're being perfectly honest here). Then we drove to a park that we hadn't been to this year yet (Greenbelt).
