Here is BBZ showing A his all-time favorite toy...
Going down slides... And climbing, climbing, climbing!
He went down this slide all by himself!
Peek-a-boo, I see you!
I don't know how Jenny does it, but little A keeps those cute bows on her precious head!
BBZ thought that all of the wood chips on one side of the chain ladder definitely belonged on the other side, so he decided it was his job to move them! Check it out!
So we got home kind of late on Friday and just relaxed. Saturday we had BBZ's 1-year photos taken and bought a baby gate for the upstairs. Laura and Joe came by and she gave me an awesome present and we spent the rest of the night watching Freaks and Geeks. We rented it on Netflix and I never saw it when it was on TV, but it is really good!
We also spent Saturday getting ready for the party N was throwing me at our house on Sunday. N and I have hosted our annual Chili Cook-off for the last 4-5 years, but we missed last year and decided to bring it back with my birthday party. Plus it is always more fun to have a party with a theme! It was so fun hanging out with all the little kids playing and running around. It is definitely different than the other parties of the past, but fun just the same.
N decided to go a bit overboard this year. He bought me 30 presents for my 30th birthday!
Here is me before I opened them...
He also designed a game so people wouldn't have to sit and watch me open 30 presents. He made a game, kind of like the games at carnivals where you throw a ball and try to land in a cup. He put numbers on all of the cups and as people came they threw rubber ducks (it was all we had around left from BBZ's duck pod at our Christmas party) and whatever cup they land in is the number of the present for me to open. It was so much fun! Among the gifts were some awesome Keen sandals (which were actually the only thing I asked for), gift certificates for Old Navy and Ann Taylor, a nacho slim jim, a lottery ticket, a really big pixie stick, the little dinosaur growing capsules, a pretty pink necklace, 2 bottles of my favorite wine, and lots of other fantastic little somethings. It amazes me that he is able to come up with new ways to make me feel great. I love him so much.
The week ended today with a fun trip to the Zoo! We went with N's family and even thought we were a bit rushed to get to our fantasy football draft, we had a great time! BBZ seemed to really love all of the animals.Some of the other elephants were taking baths which is one of BBZ's favorite things...
