Saturday, we spent the afternoon at the St. Louis Zoo. We love this zoo and go there often. Nolan was given several options to choose from for his family celebration day. Chuck E. Cheese, The Magic House, The Museum of Transportation, bowling, mini-golf, hiking, and a few others. He choose the zoo so he and Parker could ride the train together!
That evening, we had a pizza and chocolate milkshake picnic downstairs watching a Scooby Doo movie. Such fun!
For his real birthday, we celebrated all day long! He actually woke up at 5:00am. I had put streamers up in the living room and kitchen and he walked in and said, "This is soooo beautiful!" I was glad he enjoyed it!
For breakfast I wanted to make pancakes, but opted for oatmeal instead. I still topped it with strawberries and "bubble cream" (whipped cream). He was excited but didn't think it tasted like his usual oatmeal. Oh well. I tried! He did drink all of his hot chocolate, though!
We had a couple of friends over for the morning to help us celebrate. The kids from our playgroup where there, as well as our 2 neighbor girls across the street. What fun!
Nolan requested yellow cupcakes with yellow frosting and sprinkles. Can you guess his favorite color? (Since he was 17 months old!)
We had our great friends the Schleiffarths over for dinner. Nolan had his favorite food, Taquitos, but mostly just because he LOVES chips, salsa, sour cream and guacamole! And of course more cupcakes and ice cream!(The super cool Super Nolan shirt is a gift from my friend Ashley. She has her own Etsy shop, Bushel and a Peck. Check her out!)
Then we got to open some pretty cool presents!
Nolan had a wonderful birthday. Thank you to all the phone calls, facebook comments, and thoughts on his special day. We love you Nolan!
