I'm back to continue the re-cap of Parker's birthday weekend. If you missed the first episode, about the decorations and what went on Friday, see the post below.
Today is all about Saturday and Sunday.
As I mentioned last time, before Parker's birthday we made a list of his favorite things to eat and do - so we decided to spread those things out over the weekend.
One of the things Parker really wanted to do was go to what he calls the "toy store" and "bookstore" - which means Toys R Us and Mardel. So away we went on Saturday morning...
More than looking at or buying toys, his favorite thing to do at Toys R Us is play with the Thomas the Train table. He would stay there for hours. No matter how long we stay each time we go, he never likes leaving. We've debated about getting him one of these tables, but besides it taking up a lot of space, we think he looks forward to playing with it at the store and may not play with it as much if he had one at home all the time.
We picked up lunch and headed home. While we ate, Parker played with his new toy from the toy store. He had some birthday money and we had a birthday coupon so he bought something from the TV show "Tickety Toc" - one of his current favorites.
On Sunday, we do what we do each Sunday and headed to the early service and Sunday school at church. But first, a quick picture - last day as a two year old!
Later Sunday night, or Birthday Eve, after we bathed Parker, we put his birthday pajamas on. He did some silly poses in the living room after his bath. I think he was pretty happy that his birthday was the next day.
It was a fun Saturday and Sunday spending time as a family and enjoying more birthday festivities!
Next up...Monday - his birthday.
Until we meet again...
