We had many great celebrations for Intrepid's 9th birthday, which was May 29th. We were underway much of the day, so we made him burritos from our "canned meat" stash, then brownies with marshmallows on it. I didn't have presents wrapped and ready or activities of any kind, so we decided to do the official birthday the next day.
So, on the 30th, we celebrated for him with a shore day, iPad video games at quiet time, his favorite baked beans for dinner. Then he opened presents and cards from the grandparents that we keep onboard for their birthdays. He had a great day! We had super ripe bananas, so Courage asked for banana bread. I was about to make Intrepid a cake. So Intrepid decided that it was OK to have a birthday again the following day with cake and banana bread tonight.
On the 31st, 3 kid boats arrived!! Good timing! We knew all of them from prior and their kids are our kid's age. So we invited them all to cake and a party!! We had a lasagna dinner (another Intrepid favorite), then eggless birthday cake with green frosting. We had over 5 more kids. They all ran, blew glow-in-the-dark bubbles, girls dressed up like princesses, and generally had a great time! He had a great birthday party finally and all was well. 3 days of celebrating and he was feeling special!!
