Well, technically, Just Son didn't actually say it was the "best birthday ever." He did, however, say that he really enjoyed his birthday.
His day started with a visit to Bosco's house before school. We spent about 15 minutes there visiting our friend's cat.
Bosco was happy to see us. ;-)
While JS was at school, I was busy baking his birthday cake. Yes, I carried over the "theme" of JS's cupcakes. I put "theme" in quotes because those are the sprinkles that came with the container of blue frosting that I bought from the store. I added chocolate sprinkles. Does that make it semi-homemade? ;-)
Here's the finished cake, waiting for JS.
Here's JS, waiting for his dad to come home from work so he can dig in to the cake.

When Dad came home, it was time to light the candles and sing.
Make a wish, and ....
Yes, there was cake before supper. :-)
And there was supper after cake. ;-) JS requested his favorite: cheese enchiladas with green sauce.
JS's birthday loot. The Green Eggs & Ham DVD is from his teacher; the puzzle and the Rise of the Guardians books are from my parents; the Lego set is from Just Dad's parents; and the Air Buddies movie is from my sister. The Dr. Seuss puzzles we got for him aren't shown.
Oh! All the presents in the background are games and toys he got for Christmas. He's slowly making his way to playing with them. This could take all year... ;-)
See? It was a very good birthday.
Which is good because today ...
... I had to pick him up from school early because he got sick.
Happy 11th birthday, Buddy!
