Pump It Up

Dawson has been asking to go to Pump It Up all summer so we finally went last week. Dawson had a great time on all the inflatables and Brady was happy to be at such an exciting place with so much to see and explore.

Brady in one of the bouncers, happy and smiling as usual.

Dawson zipping down the big slide.

Just sliding down wasn't exciting enough so he had to bounce and flip down (he literally flipped over on his way down). He also tried going down backwards and head first.

Dawson and a little friend peeking through the mesh, eagerly waiting for the friend's dad to jump up and scare them.

And when he roared at them they both fell down laughing hysterically - over and over again.

Hanging out on the wobbly center piece.

A video of one of the kid's dads jumping onto the center piece to bounce all the boys, which they loved.

Barnes & Noble

We always enjoy visiting Barnes & Noble. The boys love playing with the train set in the children's area, and perusing all the children's books.

Dawson loved playing with Julie's little dog Lilly last weekend. He enjoyed chasing her around the house, letting her chase him, taking her outside on the leash, and helping her get cozy in her bed.

As part of the birthday celebration with my family, Brady had a birthday cupcake. He didn't really care for the icing, but loved the cake. He also wasn't sure what to think of everyone looking at him and singing happy birthday.

Sticking his fingers into the icing.

Chowing down on the cake.

Happy boy!

Birthday Presents

He really liked playing with the tissue paper and watching Dawson toss it up in the air.

Checking out some new toys when Lilly came over to see what was going on.

He loves balls!

Smiling as he plays with the pelican toy.

He really liked this fun push toy from IKEA.
