I got Evan a basketball goal as a birthday gift. It's one that hangs on the back of a door. I put it up on his bedroom door and he loves it! I never thought he would like it as much as he does. Definitely a big hit!
Evan started preschool on the 18th. The first day started out a little rough since Evan didn't want to go into his classroom. He cried some but the teacher distracted him and he eventually had a great day. He only goes Tuesday and Thursday so today was his third. It's getting better and he actually walked in on his own today. Soon he'll be running in forgetting to give us hugs. We're very happy that he is enjoying preschool. He is so big!
We took Evan to the Museum yesterday to celebrate his birthday. They have a lot of hands on and exciting things for kids. Evan really had a great time. His favorite thing was sliding on the tunnel slide. He did it over and over. He was definitely exhausted when we were through.
After Discovery and a much needed nap, we had some chips, cookies and gifts to finish the celebration. It was a great day!
The grandparents got Evan a swing set for his 3rd birthday. Eric spent most of today putting the beast together. Evan got to try out part of it while Eric finished assembling it. He liked it. I can't wait to see him on it tomorrow now that there's more swings up. Here are a couple pics I took this afternoon. I'll get more tomorrow!
We did a pre-celebration Birthday for Evan in Pensacola. It started out fine and then he had a melt down. Luckily I got some pictures of him before he lost it. He had one bite of cake and that was it. He wasn't really impressed. Everyone else enjoyed it. The cake was yummy!
Evan and I went to Pensacola recently and had a great visit with my parents. We took him swimming and he loved it! He was a little slow at first to get in but once he was in and realized the freedom he had, he became a little fish!
We also went out on the river in my dad's boat. Again, Evan did not want to get in and was pretty scared. He eventually calmed down and enjoyed it. I think he started to get a little motion sickness but I'm not sure. It was a quick boat ride.
