Thom spent his birthday in a very unusual way for an American kid born at the end of July: in school.
I made RIce Krispie treats for the occasion, and Thom shared them with the whole school. Everyone was together rehearsing for their end of year show.
We searched several grocery stores but were unable to find plain Rice Krispies. We took a risk and bought the chocolate flavored ones. There were no complaints.
After school, I took Thom and Vinnie to the Holy Taco Shack for some delicious street food and a root beer float. A gift-opening session followed by a visit to the Schlossberg Biergarten with our Virginian pals wrapped up a very lovely 11th birthday. We're happy this guy was born.
