Birthday Party

Tonight we had Marshy's birthday party. He doesn't turn 2 until Tuesday, but we wanted to celebrate on a non-school night. We had presents, cake and ice cream at the park. It was super fun!

Mike was in charge of taking pictures during the present opening, and only took one. I guess it's because he decided to switch over to the video camera, and so we got a lot of video but not a lot of pictures. Anyway, Marshy got a lot of really great presents. Some cars, a cool boat with building blocks, and a puppy (he LOVES the puppy already! He was walking it around the kitchen as soon as we got home! Thanks guys!)
This is the first year he got to sit up to the table by himself and eat cake and ice cream. Last year he didn't really want anything to do with the cake. This year he couldn't get enough!
Oh what a good big boy he is!
Mmmmm! Yummy cake!
I love watching him stick the fork full of cake and ice cream in his mouth. It's so funny! He sticks it in sideways, which I'm sure is harder than it would be if he used the fork like it's meant to be used.
After he got all cleaned off we went and played on the swings. Of course, we had to take puppy with us!
"Adain! Adain!"
"ADAIN!" ....even though I'm so tired that I rest my head on the front of the swing while I swing because I'm SOOOO TIRED! BUT! "ADAIN!" He about threw a tantrum when I pulled him out of the swing because he was so tired. Then he realized we were going back over to where his cars were, and he was okay with that.

Thanks to everyone for all the fun stuff! (Lola, he is sleeping with the cute monkey blanket tonight, and he loves it! "Dinkdi!" is what he said when he saw me bring it in to him in bed.)

At first I thought he had gotten a REAL puppy then I saw that it was a stuffed animal. That should be a lot less work for you. =-)
