He loved it! He walked all around the box holding on the edges, he'd thump on the sides and squeal with delight. It was very cute.
Then he tried to crawl. That he didn't like so much. So he was up on his toes trying to make it across the middle.

Plus she is going to the movies and out for dinner with grandma and grandpa. So much for us worrying that she'd be disappointed by having her party a week early.

Alison's cucumber plant has some tiny cucumbers on it and tons more blooms. I'll take some pictures tomorrow and post them. She is so excited! She's been busy this week playing with the early birthday presents that she got at her party last weekend. She's been very creative. She's drawn pictures for all her thank you notes and now I have to help her write her messages.
Not much else is new around here this week. We are going to try to go to the Farmer's Market tomorrow. It seems like each time we try to go, it rains.

First we had Ian's party from 1-3pm. His was a bookworm theme and he got tons of great books and toys. Ian loved his birthday cupcake. He started with just dipping his fingers in the frosting, he tried hands free. That wasn't as good as he thought it would be so he went back to wiping the frosting off. Then I cut it in half so he could see the cake inside. He ate the first half so fast that I took the 2nd haf away so he wouldn't get sick. After his cake and frosting were done, he picked up the plate and licked it. Here's the before pic of the cake.
Dan's parents gave us his bookshelf that his grandpa had built for him when he was younger. Much cooler than a store bought one that we were going to get.
Then from 3-5 we had Alison's party. Her birthday isn't until next week, but she was really jealous about his party being first and didn't mind sharing the party.
Alison had a camping party. Dan set up his old tent and the kids had fun playing in it. We made a campout cake. Her party was a big success. We had camping/camp activities like making sand art jars, stargazers, rock necklaces (cool idea, didn't work so well), and popsickle stick art. The kids could also make their own ice cream and have smores cooked over the grill in the fire pit. Oh and the pin the flame on the fire game that Alison made up.
Let's see if these picture links work.
