Fun with cousins and Thomas the Train

This past weekend, we enjoyed a visit from my sister, Keri and her children for their Spring break. When they visit Indianapolis their favorite place is to go to The Children's Museum! My nieces have been looking forward to the Barbie exhibit for months and Garrett had been saying "dinosaur, T-rex" for days! We had a great time, but as usual it was exhausting for the parents. My sister and I even brought in a reinforcement by asking Brandon to take the day off. The kids were so good and we had such a great visit!

The water, Garrett's favorite, mom not so much!

He kept saying, "Dozer, mommy!!"

Ice cream treat for being so good!

Messy boy!

Since Garrett's birthday is Easter weekend, we enjoyed a party at home with neighbors and friends on Saturday. Garrett received a Thomas the Train for birthday with table and the whole works! We set it up so he could have it Saturday morning. It was like Christmas morning, so fun!! He played with that table ALL DAY! Later we enjoyed cake and ice cream! Happy Birthday, bud!

The choo, choo cake mommy made for the party!

He was so shy when everyone was singing to him.

Dig in!

Happy Birthday Garrett! More pics from Easter weekend and birthday parties #2 and #3 to come! This child is not spoiled at all. Have a great Easter weekend! Hallelujah, Christ has risen!
