Saturday we went up to CT for Sam and Ben's 2nd Birthday. We all had a great time and enjoyed the nice weather. Here are my favorite photos from the day:
All three boys playing with Sam and Ben's gifts.
Sam's sweet smile.
Ben's turn with the candles
It was a big day for getting over fears! Colin got over his fear of sand and Ben got over his fear of Colin!
Colin and Ben collecting acorns with 'Mimi'. Good practice for the Easter Egg hunt!
Ben gives a smile. He is a bit swollen from a course of steroids to treat a severe allergic reaction.
Nice smiles from BOTH boys at once! Not an easy feat.
Another of Sam and Ben's birthday gifts! Colin enjoyed playing baseball.
Almost ready for organized play!
Then on Sunday we went to the Circus! A friend of Sean's was able to get us some tickets. We were originally going to bring Lauren and Katie, but Lauren had a game so Grammy came instead. The seats were perfect. Far enough away not to be overwhelmed but still close to the action and very near the center of it all.
There was a pre-show animal meet and greet so we got to view the elephants tigers and farm animals up close.
Then we got to go down on the floor before the show started to do a meet and greet with some of the human characters! Colin was a bit nervous about this part since it was very crowded and loud.
Clown noses free with admission! Colin wasn't such a fan of them being on him.
Intermission. Colin was a champ and sat on my lap throughout the entire thing. I think his favorite part was the motorcycle on the high wire since it occurred right in front of us. We even made it out without having to purchase any outrageously priced souvenirs. I thought for sure he would want one of the light up things but he never showed any interest and since they were $20 and up I wasn't offering.
What a great weekend!
