Happy 2nd Birthday Landon!

Happy 2nd Birthday Landon!

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!

4th of July 2018

4th of July 2018

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!

Mother’s Day 2018

Mother’s Day 2018

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.

On Fridays I normally take the kids to the park and then we get McDonald’s on the way home. Tonight Tessa really wanted to go to Carl’s Jr. to play in the play land.

Then we came home for lunch and Landon got to use his iPad which Tia gave to him since she doesn’t use it anymore.

Once Daddy came home we headed for Carl’s Jr. I wasn’t a fan of them being around so many germs but they had a lot of fun!
