We began by waking up everyone for presents and breakfast.
Sam's Handy Manny table
Sam's watches Handy Manny every single morning!
This blue tote was one of Sam's gifts. My parents gave Sam a set of Handy Manny tools, and this tote will hold all of the new tools.
Here are Sam's presents in the Birthday Chair.

Sam posed for pictures most of the day using his "Big 5 Year Old Face", instead of the usual goofy one.

We spent the day just playing and resting. Sam wanted to play Legos and also play outside in the woods. The boys spent most of the day exploring. Then everyone got cleaned up and we went to Mt. Fuji for a hibachi supper.

A birthday surprise!
A little cake with a huge flaming candle! The restaurant flashed colored lights and played a lively birthday song while they brought this to Sam. Fun!

After supper we came home and enjoyed birthday cake and ice cream. A fun ending to a super day!
