Eli's birthday party

Our little boy is soon to turn 5. It seems amazing really as the time has flown by so quickly.

We celebrated with a trip to the cinema to see the 'Lego Movie' which is a really big deal if your under 10, in fact it's a pretty big deal whatever your age.

I think there was about 23 of us when we finally went into the cinema - we took up an entire row across the middle of the theatre. Amy had cleverly planned to have the party preceding the school holidays (where everyone would have otherwise gone to watch the film) so it was the opening weekend.

The film itself was excellent - so many action scenes one after another and something for everyone boys, girls and adults alike. The hero of the film is Emmet (on which the cake was based).

Afterwards we went to the cafe next to the cinema where the chef came out to congratulate me on the cake (yes I was very chuffed). Unsurprisingly Eli received a whole ton of Lego toys for his birthday which will end up being sucked up into the vaccum cleaner/falling down the heating vents for months/years(?) to come.

He ended the day a really happy boy having seen all his friends, watched a film exclusively about lego and then had pizza for lunch. Do birthdays get much better?
