The middle child's birthday was 10 days ago.
(Yes, I'm late with this post, so shoot me)
We found out on the day before that Rick Riordan would be in town, signing books.
Said child has been reading the Percy Jackson series and was very excited to hear that he could get his books signed. We rescheduled the day so that Hubby could take the boy.
It was a surprise, he didn't know that he was getting to go to the signing until they got to the book store.
I have heard that middle child was chatty and smiley (very odd for this child). He made jokes and asked questions, discussing the books in length.
I did have to plead with him to take his camera into the book store and actually let hubby take pics (specifically for blogging, lol).
