I bought this shirt as soon as I found it... and made him wear it immediately. We don't call him Joe-zilla for nothing!
But Joey is now three and got a two-day birthday!
Birthday? Did someone say birthday? That means cake!
Pancakes to start the day, of course!
More junk food on the train since it is a special day today...
After the rides, there was the birthday cake. Complete with a moose, duck and bear.
Joey really liked his cake! He thought the colorful sprinkles were pretty. Boy, was he in for a surprise!
Always take precaution around an older, candle blowing brother!
Mama put a rainbow inside the cake!
Everyone enjoyed it, even the crusty ones!
Presents waited until the next day, the actual birthday. Then the tissue typhoon was unleashed in my room...
To celebrate the day we went to one of our favorite spots and rode the monorail, now it is finally opened back up!
Then we took a couple of spins around on the dinosaur train!
There were several big dinosaurs around the looping track, but the t-rex was animated so that it kind of moved its head and eyes like it was watching the train go by... and it moved its little hands up and down. Almost every kid on the train waved back.. That was really cute, even if unintentionally done by the animators.
We also had our first movie experience and saw Toy Story 3, which half of the boys did ok with...
and to round things out was had painting when we got home.
The boys are always asking to paint, but it usually turns out poorly (I mean all over the floor and each other) that they don't get to very often!
It was a great couple of days and Joey now insists that he is not 2, but 5 like his brother... reminds me of someone else I read about (Hmmm? Lady M?)
