Okay, so there was *way* too much awesome this week to fit in one listing. I can’t even tell you how much fun we had – so here are a FEW awesome things:
Seriously, we *all* needed to get away. Daddy has been working SO hard all summer and is getting ready to begin a new school year without much of a break in between, I have been teething, teething, TEETHING, and Mommy was just tired. A week at the beach was just what the doctor ordered! Mommy had a hard time convincing Daddy that I don’t usually nap, given that I took epic 3 hour snoozes each time we went to the beach; she’s seriously considering buying a few bags of sand and an ocean cd for my room. Also, there were laundry machines in the unit we were staying in. Mommy would have taken a picture, but that would have been a little sad, probably. As it is,she did laundry three times on vacation – and *loved* it!
Sometimes? It’s just fun to delve into the world of the tacky. I had two great examples this week: mini golf and Lucy the Elephant.
I actually had my first experience with putt-putt on my birthday – it was so exciting I slept through the first 6 holes. (Really? MORE napping? Say goodbye to Mommy – we will be moving to Ocean City.)
On our way home, we crossed another item off my Summer Bucket List and visited Lucy the Elephant. Lucy is a six-story high building shaped like an elephant that was built in 1882. In 1970, she “walked” down the street to her current location, and she is considered a National Historic Landmark. Also? She is AWESOME.
My FIRST birthday was a week ago today, and I had my very own birthday party on Sunday – are all birthdays this great?!
I already knew cupcakes on your birthday are awesome, and my own did not disappoint. Mommy was really worried that we would not be able to find a bakery in Ocean City, but we found a great one that only opened a week ago! Not only that, it’s on Nicholas Lane – isn’t that cool?! The picture below was taken right before I got so excited that I literally fell out of my little chair. (Don’t worry, I’m okay.)
Even though Mommy wrote “no presents” on the invitations, everyone ignored her – lucky me! You know what I got? Weebles! Did you know they wobble? And? They don’t fall down! I also got a great new fall wardrobe (good thing, too, since I’m growing out of all my clothes), some nice wooden puzzles, and more toys. Yay!
