I have never wondered this...  But tonight I found out.  

Today was Elijah's 5 year birthday celebration in NYC!  We are leaving right before he turns 5, so his great aunt planned a huge party, and, as usual, she over did it!  

We started out the day with Dunkin Doughnuts as a nice surprise....  

Then we went to the Manhattan Children's Museum.....  As always it was a lot of fun.. 

I saw this and thought HMMMMMMMM.............. to myself.....

Then we saw this and it was pretty awesome...

We came home, took a nap then went to meet Aunt A at Dylan's Candy Bar-- Her birthday tradition to our son...  She takes him there and tells him to go crazy :)  

Here is aunt a & Elijah!  As always, Elijah was THRILLED to be here :) 

Me and Elijah posing in front of the largest gum ball machine ever...

Elijah disappeared with Aunt A and emerged carrying THIS bag looking SUPER excited...

We then went to dinner and as usual, Aunt A invited every one she knew :)  It was a huge party.  She then ordered Elijah his very own pizza.  He has never had one all to himself!!!  He was so happy!

Cake came and he blew out the candles...

Everyone brought a gift and finally our day was over.  We took a cab back home, brushed his teeth three times, and tossed him in bed...  I finally JUST peeked into the bag and OH MY GOD.  She left her receipt in there by accident...  She spent $145 on candy!!!  LOL!  He is the luckiest boy in the entire world :) 

Its not his birthday for another few weeks but Oh my goodness, I can't believe that he is already (almost!) 5.  I can't believe that I raised such a great kid, so polite, smart, charming and handsome I just look at him and get tears, he isn't my baby any more...  He is this great kid with his own mind and knows what he wants...  He had a blast tonight and I feel so blessed that Aunt A threw such a great party for him.  

Happy 5th (almost!) birthday to Elijah!!  

<3

I know!  I'm planning another with my side of the family in California at a place called Pumped Up!  Which is basically large bounce houses on his actual birthday...  Not sure anything can top tonight though :)

Happy Birthday AJ!  Elijah isn't 5 until the 21st but Aunt A couldn't allow a birthday to go by without seeing him and doing something over the top awesome.  :/  I'm so going to miss her and this part of NY.

Can you please tell your aunt that I am a long lost relative, and I've never gotten candy in my life. Birthday is tomorrow, it might work.

LOVE DYLANS!  We only go once a year with Aunt A in tow!  LOL She drags us there and says (insert heavy ny accent) "Forget about it!  When do I get to spoil my little Elijah?!  NEVER.  Let me!  LET ME!"
