Ethan was out of school for 3 weeks before the fall started up again. The Sunday before he started back, we had lots of fun just enjoying hanging out as a family before we get back into routine. We went to the zoo, back to school shopping, and then some 4 wheeling around the apartments.
We had Ethan's big birthday party at Gymboree on August 8. We invited our little church friends, neighbor friends, family, and our "aunts and uncles". Ethan was overwhelmed at times and not too big on the group activities other than the parachute, but as long as you let him do what he wanted and kept the animal crackers coming....he had lots of fun! We really appreciate everyone coming to help us celebrate his big day!
A few weeks ago, Ethan really got excited about having an audience here with his mama, dada, grammy, and papaw and REALLY went to town on the rockband drumset. He is so dramatic about and gets into it like a real performance. We might have a budding musician on our hands!
Brandon's been dying to take Ethan to the zoo, so we loaded up a few weeks ago and then the rain started, so we went to the museum of discovery instead. Ethan loves to play in the big trucks, but doesn't really care for sharing them. These photos are on the iphone with poor lighting, sorry they're blurry.
We took cupcakes for Ethan's last day of summer school and when I picked him up, there was one left with his backpack. He of course wanted it, so I told him he could have it when he got home....then I decided I'd rather have the mess outside than in the apartment. Ethan doesn't really like stuff like this so we played with it outside in the heat until the icing slid off and then we went inside to clean up.
