Sad, Sick Birthday!!

We had super fun plans for this special day! Me, Daddy and Oliver were going to take McD's to Clayton at school, then head to swim at Lifetime with friends, then a fun celebration dinner at Clayton's favorite place--Tin Star. We were going to finish off the evening with an attempt at a Star Wars cake with blue icing. Well, none of the above happened. Clayton spent his day doing this.......

......and this.....
He woke up at 5 am crying...had a fever and started throwing up. I took him to the doctor around 2pm and we ended up with this......

Clayton tested positive for Strep Throat and the Flu!!! So, so sad. He has felt so bad that he hasn't really cared that it was his birthday. He finally requested a happy meal for dinner and is keeping it down for now. We spent the evening building a Tie Fighter (Lego Star Wars) and he really enjoyed that. I can claim that it was my first Lego project ever!! Half way through he asked to go to bed. We are hoping for a quick recovery so we can have a birthday redo this weekend.
