Birthday Continued

So I said in my last post that I would go into more detail about Eric's birthday, so here we go. For about a couple of months, all Eric said he wanted for his birthday was Joe's Crab Shack. We were going to be in Vegas on his actual birthday, so I took him there two days before. My little brother came with us too. The food was delicious as always. Eric got to get hush puppies, which made him very happy. They sang him happy birthday, and every time they were supposed to say his name, they made him say, "I'm a pretty, pretty princess" while wearing the following:

It was pretty amusing. On the day of his actual birthday, we started out in St. George. We had stayed at the Baker's house. They are good friends of ours. Eric taught them on his mission and spent a lot of time with them. Sister Baker make Eric a delicious casserole for breakfast. Then we left to get on the road to Vegas. Before we got to my grandparents house, we had to take a little side trip because a certain two people got in trouble with the law, and got sent here:

I had to go bail them out. It was quite interesting... Yeah, kidding. I'm sure you got that though. Actually Brother Baker has been the assistant superintendent over a detention center that was being built in Vegas. It's pretty much done, so on our way down to Vegas, he had us stop by to give us a tour of the center. I had never been to "prison" before and I never plan on it. It was pretty interesting to see what everything was like, and to see how much "privacy" the inmates get. It was also interesting to see how they control the doors. Those suckers are thick!

Later that day, after we got to my grandparents house, we sang to Eric. My mom, grandma, and aunt made Eric a cake that looked like a target. It was cute.

Then Eric opened some of his presents. It was a pretty fun day. Happy Birthday again Eric. I love you!
