Reckless Driver!

Our little daredevil Nate has learned to drive AJ's electric car all by himself.  He even tries to stand up while driving.  Crazy California driver!

More birthday fun

Just sharing a few more birthday pics.  Why not?  :)

It doesn't get cuter than this one...  The morning after his birthday.


Umm, what??  No cake and ice cream this morning for breakfast?

Loving his new ride, and so is big brother.

Happy Birthday to Nate

                                                    


He didn't know what to think about us singing to him.

Taro gave him a fork and he didn't know what to do with it! HA.

Until he almost choke himself with it.

So I stuck his hand right into the cake.

Six layer "white" cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream.  A first time making that frosting.  It was a bit tricky because you start by cooking it first.


Getting the hang of it now.


Ok, just shove it all in now.

Birthday Boy




I was making Nate's cake this morning, and left the kitchen to use the bathroom.  I came back to hear Nate crying very softly.  I couldn't find him.  He crawled up under this table and was stuck.  This was the first time he had every crawled up there.  When he saw me again, he was very happy and very proud of himself.  Stinker!  It's his birthday, I'll let it slide.  :)

Rrr, matey. Fun on the Pirate Ship

The latest additions to the "Pirate Ship" playground include a ginormous pirate flag.  Special thanks to Taro for that one.  I think he could have found a slighty bigger flag though.   Jeez!



AJ steering the pirate ship away from meteors.  Yes, meteors.  All while screaming to his "crew" that there is an emergency.  HAHA!  It is hilarious.


The other fun addition is a bucket swing for Nate, which he loves as you can see.


Nate has learned to wave hi and goodbye, which is probably the cutest thing ever!  If you listen close you can hear AJ screaming at his crew about the latest emergency!  HA.

Blueberry Farm






The boys and I had a quick visit to the local blueberry farm with friends last week.  AJ and Nate had fun playing in the blue sand box.  It was HOT!  The blueberries were delicious.  I made a lemon bluberry bread that night with the 2 cups of blueberries we picked.  AJ tried it, spit it out, and said it was too blueberry.  Ha!
