Happy Birthday .... for "free"!!


As I've mentioned before, we have five summer birthdays in our house. We also have a "daddy takes me out wherever I want to eat on my birthday" tradition, so some of these will come in handy! Hope you can enjoy some of them too!

One disclaimer: If you look carefully, the term "free" is used very loosely. Oh, and the sarcastic comments are, of course, mine!
