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…

    Happy Birthday, Nathan!! Wow, just 2 years ago you were here.

    Glad you had a good time, but sucks on the heatstroke. I think we are in for a sucky (way too hot) summer.

    I bet Nate & Lucas totally wanted to move into that castle!

    Ah ha ha ha ha….my belly!!!

    Nate loved it…Lucas liked it. ROFL

    Yep, the heat stroke sucked but thankfully it wasn’t full blown. Just mega head pounding every time I went inside the house. I knew something wasn’t right and fixed it as best as I could.
