Adam's Birthday

Adam took the day off of work for his birthday on Friday and we took Jayden to the spray park. Jayden and I have gone a few times, but this was Adam's first time going.

I like this picture because it looks like the cheerio is suspended in the air.

Every year for Adam's birthday we go to a restaurant about 45 minutes away. We've been doing it for 10 years now. It's a little nicer/quieter of a place than we usually take Jayden. I was nervous about the longer drive and then keeping him quiet in the restaurant, but Jayden did pretty well. Adam and I took turns walking him outside in between courses and I had a bag of toys to distract him when he wasn't eating.

One thing that he kept doing was laughing/squealing when people at other tables laughed or got loud. Like he was in on the joke. A table of older people near us got a real kick out of that. Actually, a lot of people in the restaurant were nice, smiling, and saying how cute he is. All except one table who were shooting us dirty looks.

 The big koosh ball always works as a distraction.

The really funny thing about this birthday is that two packages arrived on Adam's birthday. They were both for Jayden. Although one of them was NY Giants onesies so those are just as much for Adam. :)

And while we were out shopping for Adam's birthday present (a printer) Jayden also ended up getting a present.

A hippo chair.

I couldn't resist.
