Can you believe this guy is 2???!!! (I was going to post the Freddy Kruger- looking/barely born/bloody picture, but was afraid of the backlash...)
We celebrated Oliver's 2nd birthday last weekend with a trip to Chuck E. Cheese and then cake and ice cream on his actual birthday on Sunday. I must say that I was somewhat disappointed with Chuck E. Cheese. We went every so often when I was a kid, but it has changed. They used to do a "live" show with all the characters and now, it's just a movie that repeats itself over and over. It's basically a glorified arcade and it's kinda dirty and gross. But, we weren't there for me, right?? Oliver had a blast and wouldn't even be distracted by pizza and root beer (two of his faves, the latter which he NEVER gets unless Christian sneaks it to him while I'm not looking). He could have gone down this slide all night long. Then, he discovered the virtual reality red car that moves and races. Wow- talk about a boy's dream.
I tried to teach Oliver how to play one of my favorites: skee ball. As you can see, he wanted to be back at the slide.
We got him this b-ball hoop for his b-day and he loves it. He shoots all the time and is actually getting pretty accurate. He always yells with either "miss" or "make" when he shoots.
Aunt Rachel sent Oliver this cute little rock kit that you have to bust apart and there's a shark hidden inside (his current obsession, egged on by guess who...??).
