When Wyatt turned 3 we bought a swingset for him. Last year, we literally had to bury that swingset. It was rotting, and it had become a hazard to our kids and our friends' kids! I wanted to get the boys a new swingset for Christmas, but I was worried that Reid might be too little for the climbing aspect of the playset. So, we waited a few more months. We found one that we liked, and I finally ordered it in early March. I knew that Lance was going to HATE putting it together, but that was the only option. They charge $600 to assemble it! (I don't think so!!!!) Luckily, Lance had some rainy days that he couldn't work. Right after that he has been BUSIER than he has been for a very long time! So, it all worked out perfectly. Wyatt was out of school Monday and Tuesday of the week that Lance was working on the set. So, Lance, Wyatt and Reid literally spent HOURS outside those three days. Reid "helped" Lance with his play screwdriver, drill and hammer! He had a great time, and it was so sweet for me to watch the father and sons bonding outside! The swingset has been completed and was a HIT at Reid's party. I am thankful for my parents and Lance's mom who helped us to purchase such a nice set. I know that it will be played on for many years to come.
I am so behind on posts. I have about three that I want to do. So, here's a short one for now. (My friend is frustrated with my lack of posting, so this one is for her!) I was trying to get a picture of Reid's shirt in the picture above. Reid looks mad because he wanted to get in the trampoline, and I was telling him to say cheese! The theme of his party was "heavy equipment", so when I saw this shirt on sheshemade.com, I knew that it had to be HIS:)
Reid's birthday was last Wednesday. I still can't believe that boy is 2!!!! We had his party on Saturday, and it was a gorgeous day! The weather was warm, but it was windy and not a cloud in the sky.
We had a lot of friends from church and from our "hometown" group of friends. There were kids everywhere...even a set of quadruplets;)
Everyone seemed to have a great time...especially the birthday boy! He received so many sweet presents! He loves to say "mine" now, so that was his favorite thing to say about all of his presents.
My friend Michelle made his cake. I bought the cupcakes, but she put everything together, and the whole idea was hers! How precious did it come out? Wyatt had several older boys from church in attendance. They were all mesmerized by the cake! They helped Reid blow out the candles! I didn't get a family picture even though I asked two people to remind me! I did get one of Reid and me though. The party was so much fun! I think Reid enjoyed being the center of attention!
I just ordered Reid's birthday invitations! I cannot believe this baby is turning 2! Watching my baby turn into a little boy is both happy and sad all at the same time!!! Mostly it is just unbelievable!!!
