More Birthday Fun

28 Jun

While we had a big blow-out bash last Saturday for Liam’s birthday, we decided on his actual birthday (Sunday) we would make the day all about him: what he wanted to do, what he wanted to eat, and how much we truly love him.

When he woke up at 6:30 a.m. I thought maybe he was just too excited about his birthday (he usually sleeps until 8:30), so I brought him into our bed and he and I slept until 9:30…whoops!

When we finally got around, we made it to Touch a Truck and let’s just say he loved it.

We had no idea this event was so popular. It was free with donations for Harvesters. Hopefully this is the last time he’s in a police car! πŸ˜‰

He thought a small race track was particularly awesome.

And Deanna Rose Farmstead brought some goats.

Then he got to decide what to eat. His decision? Chips and salsa of course. I swear the kid loves dipping stuff. But we didn’t complain and took off for our favorite Mexican restaurant Chapala.

While Liam took a much-deserved nap, I put together his water table from Grandad and Yia Yia.

Needless to say, he loves it and with this 100+ heat, I’ve loved it, too. If only it were adult size…

We had a much smaller cake celebration. He even tried to blow out the candle this time.

And then of course he ate it…frosting first. When I asked Liam what he wanted me to make for his birthday, the answer was always cupcakes and frosting. That’s an easy yes for me. πŸ˜‰

I think we’ll make this a family tradition of spending the day just the three of us on his birthday. It really solidified our love of and appreciation for him. We couldn’t ask for more.
