Since he has shown a great deal of interest in Nathan's Gup X, we got him his own Gup, the Gup A, with his own Captain Barnacles.
After school, we had our visit from a Disney Princess. Due to expense and schedule complications, we couldn't use a professional princess but my niece graciously offered to stand in. Alex was interested, but more focused on the ice cream he had been promised.
Alex got his usual birthday bowl of ice cream with a candle and then his favourite cheeseburger and fries for supper.
