My Baby Is 2!!!
Before I go forward with my original post, I am deeply saddened to report that my Uncle has passed away. I am not ready to blog about that just yet, so I will link you with the post my Cousin and fellow blogger, Hules wrote in his memory. I will be dedicating a post to him once I return home from the funeral.
Back to my regularly scheduled post.
Today is my baby’s 2nd birthday! Happy Birthday Nathan!!! I can’t believe how fast time flies when you blink. We had a party for him yesterday and rented a Jumpy Thing. It was a big blue castle and the kids had a blast! We also had the sprinkler out to cool everyone off since it was a scorching 32℃ outside with nothing but a warm, warm wind. I ended up with slight heat stroke, but caught on early enough and sucked back as much cold water as I could handle.
Nathan had a great time jumping away in his castle and the people that run Jumpy Things totally rock! They had so many deliveries yesterday, they dropped the castle off 2 hours early and picked it up almost 3 hours late, charging us for the 4 hours we originally rented it for (in total we had the castle for 9 hours). Which I suppose they couldn’t overcharge us for anyway, as it wasn’t our fault. On top of that they also gave us $10 dollars off for paying cash. Good deal? I think so! All I cared about is that Nate had a wonderful time, and he did.
My day became a little bit brighter too when I received a belated b-day gift from my girlfriend, Candace. She gave me a journal to “write my heart out” in, as well as a cute pen, a paper mouse pad that I can doodle on, a build your own Stonehenge kit (TOTALLY CUTE!) and the book A Complicated Kindness which I am excited to read. It just so happens that I received an e-mail from Chapters/Indigo giving me 3 e-books to download and A Complicated Kindness was one of them. What are the odds?
She is a great friend and when she does something, it comes straight from the heart. I love her so.
Here are a few pictures from yesterday…
