Birthday celebration!

Joshua had a great Birthday this year. I took him & the kids to Chuck E. Cheese. He loves it there. We kept the celebrating very simple & had I thrown a lavish party, I'm not sure it would have been any more fun.  I'm realizing that maybe less is more. I certainly didn't feel stressed out or worried that things would be just right. So nice to just enjoy the day & have fun with the kids!

He got a rubber band riffle (although no ammo) & he LOVED it! After opening his gifts he nearly forgot that he hadn't gotten the lightsaber he'd been asking me to get him for months. He quietly said, "maybe next time I'll get a lightsaber." and then returned to playing.
He never mentioned it again. That night Grandma stopped by briefly because he had one last gift for the birthday boy. Wouldn't you know, it was the lightsaber! Secretly, I knew along she was getting the lightsaber...but for him, it was the best surprise in the world! The perfect ending to a perfect day!
It was a very happy birthday!

Having 2 year old & 3 year old boys is always exciting. There's never a dull moment, as they say.

Josh always has something new to teach Sam. Sam is eager to learn & help come up with new ideas.

We love our little knuckle heads!
