How Fox Celebrated his Second Birthday


Fox began his birthday by waking up at 5:30 am ...for some reason. Luckily he went back to bed and then woke up for real a few hours earlier and began his celebrations by watching Curious George. Then we enjoyed some toast together. Fox then commenced his favorite activity: going outside to play. Kiddo was greatly blessed this year, as it rained a ton on his birthday, so he was able to enjoy being outside without being accompanied by energy-scorching sun rays. Then we made a birthday hat to make everything more official. Fox colored, I cut out, taped, and pom-pom'd. Playing, eating, and napping filled the rest of this birthday morn. After an awesomely-long nap, this new two-year-old then went out to claim some free birthday yummies. We all headed out and engorged ourselves on 2/3 of Gilbert's infamous birthday trifecta (Joe's BBQ and Liberty Market. We ran out of time for Joe's Farm Grill, unfortunately).

Sidenote: If your birthday lands on a Tuesday this year (or even if it's not your birthday), go on and get yourself to Liberty Market for #dossanttuesday. Donut + croissant = dossant (aka cronut). Today's flavor was maple butterscotch candied bacon. My life has changed. For the best.

Ok, back to birthday bizz. Birthday boy finished his big day with a loooong walk around the neighborhood (with Grandpa and Bowski in tow). This included plenty of encounters with puddles, rocks, and pinecones. And of course there was a fun FaceTime session with daddy, who's in DC right now. Then off to bed to dream of more birthday festivities to come; He still has has his big family party this weekend. Lucky kid and his never-ending birthday:)

  2. said dossut sounds 100 times better than the NY cronut (and from the looks of it, bigger and probs cheaper too!). sign me up for a tuesday celebration!
