I’m a summer baby, so I was talking up the merits of having a school-year birthday to Joseph. Today my smart and happy boy turns six, and it’s first birthday at school. I miss him. Can’t wait for him to get home so we can dig into that chocolate cake.
We did hit the balloon store over the weekend so Joseph and Paul could each pick out a birthday balloon. Amazing how much fun $2 can buy. Our street is looking extra pretty for spring, and here are way too many pictures of them goofing around on the sidewalk.
We held a little egg hunt in our backyard and the boys loved it. We kept tossing the eggs back onto the grass for Joseph to “find,” and soon Paul caught on and started throwing eggs too.
We went to the big egg hunt at the community center too. Inside the bunny was Joseph’s preschool teacher! Paul did NOT like sitting for a photo op with the bunny.
While Joseph was at school, Paul went to “work” with me — we attended the media preview for the “Terracotta Warriors” exhibit at the Pacific Science Center. He got to see some ancient clay figures, eat a flaky pastry (we both looove free food) and take the bus home. It’s a good thing Paul doesn’t talk yet, otherwise Joseph would be beside himself if he found out we went without him.
My review of the “Terracotta Warriors” exhibit is on ParentMap here.

We tried going to 85°C Bakery Café this weekend, and found a super long line. In the rain. At 9:30 a.m. All for some buns. I did a taste test for ParentMap here, and I hope this doesn’t mean that line is going to get even longer.
