Yesterday I had a birthday party, and it was one of the best things I've ever done. It was a strange day. I didn't see Mom all day (I heard Dad mention something about "orientation."), and then my Noma woke me up from my nap and took me to my favorite park. When I got there, I saw my mom and what she had been up to! There was a banner that said "Happy Birthday" and had pictures of Thomas the Tank Engine on it, and several colorful balloons and a few streamers as well. Not only that, but most of my favorite people were there, too. My great friends Alex, Ellie, Laura, Marta, Mack, Greg, and Maylie came, and also many of my favorite babies were there, too -- Baby Austin, Baby Brinn, Baby Lucas, Baby Saffron, and Baby Mitch all attended. My Uncle Dave was there, and brought me a tent with Lightning McQueen on it. laserkitty, thinksnow and mayna were there, along with their families, and lots of people from church came, too. It was quite a party.|
I was able to play in the park for quite some time. My cousin Dani followed me around to make sure I didn't eat any sand, and she was shocked when I told her I was allowed to go down the big slide by myself. My Mom confirmed it for her, and she finally let me go. Dani's fun, but sometimes she can be a real killjoy. Especially with the sand thing. Fortunately, I didn't actually need to eat any sand, since Uncle Dave, Dad, and Grumpy were cooking up my favorite on the grill -- hot dogs! We ate, and then I got to open presents. SO MANY PRESENTS! I could hardly contain myself. I got some fantastic books from Grandma and Grandpa and laserkitty, a cozy Thomas blanket, lots of toys and things related to Thomas, a picture of me at the zoo, a tunnel to crawl through...even some temporary tattoos! I declared, "Oh BOY!" and couldn't keep myself from taking a break from opening gifts and making a touchdown when I got an OSU football.
Unfortunately, mom forgot to bring her camera in all the excitement, so she had to take some pictures with her phone. I was too excited to even give her my fake smile.
After the presents, mom brought out a cake. It had Thomas on it too!! And candles. I blew and blew, and finally the candles went out. Then I got to eat a whole piece, all on my own. After the cake, I blew some bubbles and played some more. While exhausting, the party was some of the best fun I've ever had. And now I'm TWO!
