Zoo with Friends

Saturday, September 8th, 2012

Evan went to the zoo a few days ago with his buddies Kyle and Lily and another little girl. Apparently they were all little angels with no big fights or tantrums and all let each other pick which animals to go see next.  Evan has been talking about his trip to the zoo with Lily and Kyle a lot lately. It sounds like a good time was had by all. Evan got to see the Tigers he wanted to see and they all caught a glimpse of the baby Jaguar cubs.

Mommy told Evan that Lily was coming over to play.  She had a little talk with him about sharing his toys, since he has struggled with it on past play dates.  After a little resistance, Evan finally said, “Don’t worry Mommy, I’ll share.”

Zion’s Birthday party

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

This morning we told Evan that we would be going to Zion’s birthday party at 2pm. He got all excited, and was singing the Happy Birthday song all day long, (even now as he’s supposed to be sleeping). He had a blast with the bouncy house, the animal hunt, Zion’s battery powered 4-wheeler, the pinata, the pizza, and his very own cupcake piled high with frosting. We had to pull him from the bouncy house when it was finally time to go.
After the party we got a message from Zion’s Mom. She said after everyone had left, she asked Zion what his favorite thing was today, probably hoping to hear one of the many things she had worked hard on to get together for his birthday. Zion responded, “Evan.”

Evan’s first kiss

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Evan got his very first kiss today.

He went to play with his little girlfriend, Abbey today. After a fun filled visit, it was time to go. As we were leaving, Abbey’s Mommy told Abbey to blow Evan a kiss.  She ran down the stairs, past me, past the gate (Evan was just outside the gate), and planted him one on the lips.  He accepted it, said ‘thank you’ and then wiped it off.

It was the cutest thing ever!

After nap, he woke up asking for Abbey.

Airplane Ride

Saturday, December 10th, 2011

After Evan’s buddy Kyle came over today, Evan said, “I want to go in an airplane with Kyle.” Mommy asked, “Where do you want to go?” Evan said, “Up in the sky.”

Trick or Treat

Playtime with Reef + Maximus

Monday, July 11th, 2011

At the end of June, Evan’s little buddy Reef moved to Washington.  They had weekly play dates and had become good pals as had Becky and Reef’s Mom, Jamie.  So, it was sad to see them go.  Evan still asks to go see Reef.  Here are some pics from some play dates with Reef and his little brother Maximus.

Easter Festivities

Wednesday, May 11th, 2011

We decided to have a casual get together in our “back yard” with our neighbor buddies for Easter this year.  We invited the 3 other baby boys from the block, Ben, Zion and Reef, ranging from about 1-2 years old; and their families. The boys had a blast hunting for eggs behind our condo and the parents enjoyed some good Easter cooking and company. Thanks everyone for coming and bringing yummy food too, we had so much fun!
