After Isaac's party, we let him open a few of his presents. He got a bear that sang him happy birthday, two recordable copies of Guess How Much I Love You being read to him by both sets of grandparents (totally a coincidence!), a Melissa & Doug froggy pull toy, a Chuck Truck playhouse, and a really cool wooden book handmade by my mom.
Since the boys' birthdays are a month apart and not everyone would be able to come back for Alex's party, we decided to have a birthday brunch for Alex on the morning after Isaac's party.
Alex's "cake" was a donut with sprinkles from our favorite Saturday morning breakfast spot, "Yummy Donuts". Sadly, they know Alex's name there. And the fact that, to Daddy's dismay, he prefers a Hello Kitty or pink butterfly donut over a football one.
After brunch, Alex opened presents that the family had brought. He got all kinds of cool things, including a Cars recordable book read by Grammy and Poppa, a Buzz Lightyear laser gun, and an awesome custom made "board" game that B and Grampa conceived of and constructed.
Tim and I also got the boys a mini trampoline that they can jump on inside. We're hoping it will provide minutes of entertainment for the two of them. Cousin Charlee gave it a whirl for a few minutes herself.
We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing and trying to stay cool, and Isaac showed Grampa his popsicle-eating prowess.
Fun times were had by all. Alex's second birthday party, coming up next...
