The boy turned two today! When did he change from a 7lb 6oz screaming, puking, pooing baby to a 28lb screaming, puking, pooing boy?

In his two years he has seen three Territories and two Provinces, been on 26 different planes, logged about 400km by quad and 50km by skidoo, spent 18 night camping, ate 5lbs of cat hair, watched the Cars movie about 50 times (in the last three months- thanks a lot Tina!), taken the tires off of 20 dinky cars, picked enough dandelions to make a batch of syrup, eaten a dozen rocks, said the word "car" a gazillion times, .... My gosh, this kid has accomplished a lot in his two years! And those are just off the top of my head. I wonder what the next two years will be like!

Hunter had a great day for his birthday! I made his second favorite breakfast, french toast, since I was out of oil to make his favorite, pancakes. He then got to watch his movie, Cars. After that we went to playgroup with cupcakes in tow. He played his little heart out and scarfed three mini cupcakes. Next we took him to the restaurant for lunch for his favorite meal- french fries! Then he had a super duper meltdown where he screamed for an hour and a half while I tried to get him to nap. I won and he napped for an hour. After nap time we went to the pool for splashing fun. Finally the day was rounded out by supper with his favorite family in town and cupcakes and cake for dessert. What a busy, wonderful day.

And some videos to show today's fun:


Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to your sweet son!

Also - sorry I've been MIA lately and didn't respond to your comment on my blog. I am southeast of Whitehorse and loving it here in the Yukon.

P.S. I love reading your blog, Kara!
