The Big 2
It's official... we have a two year old in the house. You'll be seeing some pictures of him shortly enjoying his birthday celebration at Grandma and Grandpa's house. I have to give you the picture of him at dinner with his favorite toy, a 'bage truck (garbage truck for the uninformed).
The boy had a great day, including a trip to McDonalds (in which he spilled his mom's full cup of "blue juice" all over the table and grandma). It was raining outside, but he got to "swim" in the "hot" tub (it was 96 degrees: not too hot for a two year old). He got pizza for dinner, and he got cake and ice cream. He didn't quite get the hang of the candles and (much like his father) stuck his finger in the flame. Once. His cake had a fire truck and fire dog on it; he loved the icing and the ice cream best.
Besides the garbage truck, he got a little people fire truck, a dog book, several Baby Einstein "mooshes" (movies), special crayons and paper, and a Hungry Caterpillar coloring book. He also has a special train set waiting for him at home (from At JenJen, Bup, and Mak).
The big 2 was a good one. Let's hear it for the boy!
