happy happy birthday Sammy dear!

Sam turned the big 2-6 yesterday. So, for the 3rd year in a row I baked Sam's favorite "Fun-Fetti" birthday cake complete with trick-candles. Most would think this cake was more age appropriate for our son. Nope! This is just one example of why no matter what Sam's age, nobody expects him to act it. We started the celebration early, grabbed some Jimmy John's Subs, and headed out to St. George's finest...

Sam, Landon, and I enjoyed a lovely round of miniature golf. We of course set wagers on the game. I lost... BARELY! This meant no sushi dinner, instead Sam would get to choose the eating establishment. After golfing we headed into the arcade. Sam had a pile of quarters burning a hole in his pocket so we put them to good use! He was bragging about how (when he was younger) he would "totally work this one game". Little did we know, said game was hiding right around the corner. Sam had the opportunity to prove it, and surprisingly he did! Every token played yeilded at least 25 tickets. This was also a surprise because after getting the high score on skee ball, only ONE ticket was rewarded. Landon chose some fun prizes with our winnings and we headed home.
Later on Sam and I went on a hot date! Texas Roadhouse, complete with huge polygamist family to share our booth. Then a movie, Juno. We loved the movie, but not as much as watching the weirdos we ate with earlier. For his birthday Sam got tickets to see Paul Potts, Rob & Big seasons 1 and 2, some really nice clothes for his new job, and a video game. Thanks to all who helped make Sam's day so GREAT!
