Well, Birthday pics from 2 parties. Mommy had to work Saturday. So we had a party at home on July 31st. I was happy that Aunt T could make it and spend the night :)
Be sure to click to enlarge.
Joe receiving his Boy Tough Tonka Dumpster! Mommy got the easel almost a year ago. We thought to give it to him when he started writing real letters. About a month ago he did indeed start. And just a week or 2 before his birthday Mommy was Reading him a story and on a page was a illustration of an easel. He asked Mommy what it was. When she told him it was an easel, he said he wanted one :)
Lollipop Connoisseur. Where ever he goes Women give him candy.
Before the party at FunCastle we had a few minutes to burn. He saw the old Train Station at Greencastle and said he wanted to "check it out Dad". The station is now the local HQ for the Girl and Boys Scouts. Hence the Fence :)
After waiting for a train he was sure to come, I was insistent that we leave for the party. He kept telling me a train was coming. We got about 10 steps away when he yelled, "A TRAIN A TRAIN I HEAR IT! DO YOU DAD"!? And sure enough I then he a train coming. I grabbed him up and got to the fence just before the train roared by. Boy wassa he holding on tight! It wassa long one and I set him down. He grabbed my hand and held that pretty tight too. After the clacks faded away, he exclaimed, "I wasn't scared". I said, "well I was...a little... He then said quietly, "Me too, just a little." And then added, Daddy, I told you a train was coming". I replied, Yes Joe, you were right and I was wrong". So, on the ride to the party, I heard, "Daddy you were wrong and I was right. I told you a train was coming". Repeated about 50 times. Well, at least he doesn't ask me to "make the train come", anymore. It's memories like the train station visit that I will Cherish forever.
My Sister "Aunt T" who lives near Philly, just had a B-Day pass about a week before Joe's. We sent her flowers then. While on the phone with Joe, she said she was coming down for his Birthday. He then told her he was going to make a card for her.
