Hi Uncle Martin, I'm 3!
These were the sage words trusted to me by the beautiful little girl on the left who was celebrating her birthday tonight. We had Connor and Olivia's birthday at Ricardo's Mexican restaurant. Not only did all of our local family members make it out but so did all of my brother-in-law's family. I don't know how we fit into this little room. Got lots of hugs and tickled the hell out of Connor.
I did what I normally do, I brainstormed as I went through 5 different stores thinking about what two children this age would enjoy playing with, not hurt themselves or their surroundings with and would prove possibly educational. Well, the educational thing didn't work out. I looked for books but I think they are still too young for Judy Blume or R.L. Stein (although the absolutely love books and even cry if they can't find certain ones.) So I went with 2 plastic children's golf caddy sets and little Koosh-like balls that glow in changing colors when you press on them. Some day, I'm sure they'll get to try out the golf sets but I noticed they really enjoyed the balls and did their best to pull them back from the other children at the party. Overall, had a great time and got to spend the night with my family which always reminds me of how much I love them.
