He opened thirty presents (including but not limited to nail clippers and a mini first-aid kit), went out to breakfast, went on a birthday treasure hunt, went golfing, had a family dinner, followed by cake at the park, and finally... peacefully played the DS whilst Mommy put the children to bed. (I'm not so sure how that last thing is so different then any other night, but it was specifically allowed and not resented on this night because as afore mentioned, it was his big day.)

I will admit, I myself am also very excited for this birthday present because I am his date. Awe-some. We just love Garth Brooks. It's true. We love him.
But not as much as we love Jim-Bob here.
