We spent this weekend at my parents house to celebrate Joey's birthday (yes, the trip was a bear for me, see previous JE for details on why). He made out with lots of loot, of course. My parents got him a climbing set. They wanted to get him a giant swingset, but we'll wait for next year, and get a strong wood set that my father & I can build. My brother & sister-in-law got him a toy grill since he always wants to 'play' with daddy's grill while daddy is cooking.
We got him a lot of little things. "The Letter Factory" (as per StB) so that he'll be reading hemmingway next year, a 'wiggles' shirt that he say and fell in love with at the store, and a sturdy radio-flyer tricycle (we were going to get him a big-wheel, but his feet didn't reach the petals). We gave him the tric this morning when he woke up (I put it together last night). Never heard him say "Wow, look at that!" before, but I'll take it as a good response
I have pictures of everything. He had a 'wiggles' ice cream cake, and we'll be going to chuck-e-cheese tonight for his birthday. When everything is done, I'll d/l all the pictures to the server and share'm out with all yens.
