Free gDiapers, a 30th birthday, breaking records, and BBZ's first train ride

The weekend in review. Everyone knows that I cloth diaper BBZ, what everyone might not know is that cloth diapering is a bit of a hobby for me. I have all of the diapers I need, but that doesn't stop me from perusing the web for good deals on g's. I often go to Craig's list and eBay to see what people are selling. I rarely buy them, but every now and then I come across a deal I cannot pass up. What is the best possible deal imaginable? How about 4 gdiapers covers with liners and flushable inserts for FREE! That's right folks, all that perusing paid off. I'm not sure what I am going to do with the covers yet...probably sell some of the old ones and keep these, but I hurried up and grabbed them and figured I would decide what to do with them later. That was on Friday, what a great way to start the weekend! BBZ woke me up super early on Saturday (before 6am), so we played in the guest room for a while since I could close the door and my eyes for a few seconds at a time until he got too antsy and we moved the morning party downstairs. He took a few naps and we ran some errands. Then we went to our friend's 30th birthday party Saturday night. I wasn't sure how BBZ would do sleeping somewhere besides home, but we brought the play pen anyway to give it a try. At about 8:45pm, which is about 2 hours past his regular bedtime, I tried to lay him down. I fed him and laid him down and he laid there for a second or 2, sat up, looked at me and said "ba!". He was so smiley and cute and obviously not ready for bed. We went back upstairs and he played and partied with his friends until 10:30pm! That's even later than at the Bob Dylan show! He absolutely crashed when we got in the car. He didn't even wake up when I took him out of his seat when we got home. Such a cutie-pie. I hoped he would sleep in on Sunday and he did a little. 7:30 that is. Hey, it's better than before 6am! He was ready to nap around 9:30am, so I laid him down and he slept for 2 1/2 hours! I actually had to go in and wake him up so we could leave! That is an all-time record for him. I can't remember him ever taking a 2 1/2 hour nap. So I had to wake him up on Sunday so we could take him on his very first train ride!
We had to get him a conductor hat to match his cute outfit!
Look Grandpa, he's got his ticket!
Aunt C and Uncle B gave this trip as a gift to Grandpa Z for father's day...we just tagged along. This was 1 of only 2-3 of these 12" railways in the country!
It was a beautiful 2 mile ride...
...and although it was hot, we had a great time! We passed BBZ around to keep him entertained!

He is so busy all the time! This weekend we are going to visit my parents in the far, far north! So BBZ will have his first train ride and his first plane ride in the same week! He sure is a little traveler!
