Alexander turned three years old about a week ago. For dinner, we took him to Joe's Crab Shack. When the music and dancing started, he couldn't stay in his seat.

Then one of the servers showed him some moves.

We're pretty sure he got some digits. We caught him later with a Fisher Price Fake ID Kit, sporting a fake mustache that looked suspiciously like the patch of hair our cat is missing from his back.

When everyone in the restaurant sang Happy Birthday, he got to wear a cowboy hat and ride a horse head on a stick.

Then back home, we surprised him with a Clifford cake, which Darrick made. He drew the Clifford freehand! Alexander was obviously thrilled.

And he loved his gifts. It was the first birthday he seemed aware of what a birthday is, and he seemed to enjoy everything even more than we expected. Happy birthday, sweetheart!

Looks like everyone had a blast! We used to have a Joe's Crab Shack around here but it's long gone. And now I'm totally craving crab. :(
