Another year has passed and, finally tomorrow, our son will be TWO.
Some call it the terrible two with lots of tantrums to set in on the
event of the second birthday or shortly thereafter.
I will put this
to the test and position a video camera above his bed tonight in order
to capture and document whatever happens the night before they turn
So far he seems normal and very happy and content. He greatly
enjoyed his pool Birthday bash - who wouldn't?? He loved being the
center of the Universe. Just like his daddy, when he was young and
handsome, Finley was surrounded by pretty girls, drinking in their beauty and bathing in their admiring eyes.
Whilst our son was carried away by Keatsean prose I made sure we all did not fade away like the ailing knight and tried to offer some more nourishing
things alongside love and beauty. I managed to trick the little
monsters into eating a VEGETABLE cake!!! They all thought, of course,
it was plain chocolate cake. What they weren't aware of, though, was the fact that it was made from zucchinis ***grrr
** covered with...oh no..dark chocolate. Fact is they could not get
enough of it and when the party finished - it was all gone;-))))
Amongst all of us we managed to bring every single blow up water toy that had ever been invented and guess who used them the most??? I guess the attached photos will be my witnesses.
of us stayed in the water until our skin was wrinkly and I swear I saw
some people started to grow webbed feat...could have just been toe jam
Anyway, it was great fun. Thanks to all you guys for coming out to Camp Hilbert in the remote Goochland
forests. I am glad we did not loose anybody out there, well, perhaps we
did. Please check in if you are still wandering the woods;-)))
Also, thanks for all the great pressies. Finley and Halliday RIPPED them all open later that evening, heavily encouraged by happy parents holding a cold beer and repeatedly 'cheersing' at the little bunnies.
All the items were immediately tested for child safety by all of us and all the snakes, crocodiles, airplanes, puzzles,
knives, forks, plates, books, sunglasses, magnifying glasses, and
backpacks got the parent's seal of approval. We still sat at the front
porch at midnight with rubber sunglasses, a snake each around our necks
and, by than, a Bourbon and Coke and a cigar in our hands.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FINLEY!!!!!!
