Landon chose a 9 foot Frosty the Snowman blow up this year! The first one had a hole in it but luckily they were able to replace it. Landon was so excited to set up the blow ups this year!
Landon has been sick with the stomach flu for over a week now. I’m glad he is finally feeling a little better and we were happy to celebrate thanksgiving at Gigi and Papa’s house.
Landon’s favorite part was the pumpkin pie!
Landon loved trick or treating this year! He kept saying trick or treat so loud at each door. Everyone thought he was such a cute Mike.
Landon enjoyed stabbing his pumpkin more than carving it!
Today we celebrated Landon turning 2! We had a Lightning McQueen themed birthday full of fun, swimming, and lots of sugar!
I loved the way the decor turned out and the best part was how Landon reacted to it. He loved the lights and little cars on the cupcakes.
We managed to get Landon to smile for lots of pictures!
We opened presents first but Landon wasn’t really about it! Gigi had to step in and help him. He loved his cleaning set, car carrier and drill the most! Landon got lots of fun toys to help get his energy out: a bike, teeter totter, rock climbing rocks, a sit and spin
Then we did cake. Landon loved being sung to and tried so hard when blowing out his candles.
Then we had carne asada for lunch but Landon was too full from the Gigi cookies he had been eating.
Then it started pouring down rain! After the rain passed everyone went swimming while Landon took a super long nap!
After Landon’s nap he was ready to swim!
Then he played in the sand with his new Lightning gas can watering can. He and Tessa also tried out the sit and spin.
Landon had such a fun day! He went to bed exhausted in his Lightning pjs ready to turn 2! (We celebrated on the 7th and his real birthday is the 8th)
Thanks to everyone who made his 2nd birthday so special!
We celebrated 4th of July at Gigi and Papa’s with Auntie, Tia and Uncle Matt. First we swam and played corn hole. Landon even went down the water slide!
Then we ate and Landon got to open a birthday gift from Tia and Uncle Matt.
Then we swam some more and Landon decided he wanted to wear goggles like Tessa. It was so cute!
We finished the day off with s’mores, fireworks and sparklers! We found out he loves s’mores and ate the whole thing!
Landon loved the fireworks in the sky and kept saying “bang bang”. At first he didn’t like the sparklers but changed his mind toward the end.
With all the moving drama we decided to avoid packing and spent the day at our happy place. Landon rode a lot of rides with Daddy and spent a lot of time getting his wiggles out. He loved meeting Lightning McQueen and even stood still!
The face you make when your next in line to meet Lightning.
Then we waited patiently he squatted down because I did.
And it was all worth it!
This morning James took the kids and surprised me with Juju Bar for breakfast and a plant.
Then we headed to Hunter Park to ride the train and play at the park. Landon loved the train so much we rode it four times!
Then Papa stopped by to help us fix a leaky sprinkler and taught the kids how to attach pipes. Landon also played in his truck. His favorite thing to do right now is play in cars.
Landon has decided it’s more fun to dump the water table over than actually play in it. After two outfits and him trying to lick the water off the ground we decided it was time to play inside.
Landon loves to take Lightning for a drive. We do need to make it faster though so he can keep up with Tessa.
