Birthday party - I'm 2 years old!!!

Let me regale you with all the stuff I got for my birthday!

an orange outfit, complete with hat:
a bicycle:
a Lego farm:
a bunch of farm machinery:
Tanks, artillery pieces, and ammunition were conspicuously absent from my present list. Taking over the world is going to require more than birthday presents, I'm afraid.

Now that I'm 2 years old, I get to start playing youth sports. We went to my first soccer practice on Saturday. Mostly I practiced not picking the ball up. It is a very tough skill to master.

A day at the park

Mirabelle and I went on a date to a park in Los Gatos. There were airplanes and trains, two of my favorites:

Mirabelle and I waited on the bench for a ride on the train.
On the train we had to hang out with our chaperones, Megan and Mayanna.
Mirabelle hugged me before dinner at Willow Street pizza.
I got a cool Elmo balloon at dinner. I hope Mirabelle doesn't think it is dorky.

Easter was lots of fun. I met the Easter Bunny a few days ago and he promised he'd stop by my house and drop off some eggs for Easter. Sure enough, when I got up Easter morning, I found lots of eggs scattered about the house!There were even some hidden in Daddy's shoes.Good thing I found them or there would have been omelet all over Daddy's feet when he put his shoes on. Or so I thought - but when I opened the eggs they were full of stickers. Yay! I don't like regular eggs anyway.

After finding all the eggs, we went over to Doyle, Shirley, and Beth's house for brunch. Shirley taught me all about how to garden. First, you need to clear the land. Then you need to pull all the weeds.Then we dug holes to put the trellis posts into.Finally, we had to water the ground.All very interesting, should be a useful set of skills for feeding my army.

Speaking of my army, I found my first front-line soldier while we were gardening. He's been separated from his unit and lost in the jungles of the back yard for many years. I gave him a shower and brought him home.

San Diego

Dad and I went to San Diego for a few days to meet up with my cousins David and Sarah and their parents Uncle Paul and Aunt Chris.

First we went to SeaWorld and saw a dolphin show.Then we went to the San Diego Zoo. We saw Hippos
and Orangutans.
At our hotel, Sarah and I chased kites on the beach. She gave me lots of hugs. I'm still trying to figure out how to hug back...
I invented a new game at the beach, called "use my digger to pour sand on Daddy". It's lots of fun! (Sorry for the corrupt photo)
Then we met up with Uncle Bill and Dina at the beach park. Dina has a new younger brother, Jack, who has red hair just like me. We played "Where's Dina?" all evening.I had a lot of fun going to the airports and flying on the planes. Here's a nice gentleman washing the windows of our airplane for us.
The best part of the plane ride was the pretzels.Whew, what a whirlwind vacation! Time for a nap.

Disease of the Month Club

So, you are probably wondering why the posts have been few and far between for the past few months. Maybe it has something to do with the arrival of my sister, but I think it has more to do with my membership in the 'Disease of the Month' club. Let's recap:

January: RSV
RSV really wore me (and the 'rents) down. I was pretty darn sick. RSV sucks. Totally not recommended.

February: Hand Foot and Mouth Disease
The day after Mom & Mia arrived home from the hospital, I broke out in spots. Very contagious spots. I had to be quarantined from Mia for a couple of weeks till the spots went away. Oh, and I shared HF&M with my nanny. (Sorry Trang!)

March: Ear Infection & Pink Eye
March was a two-fer! And another quarantine from Mia. Not to let Mom feel left out (and so I could have someone to play with in quarantine), I shared Pink Eye with her.

Mmmm, I wonder what next month will bring.... maybe something really exotic!

Check out my sweet ride

A Dinan-supercharged roadster? Thanks, Dad!

Wait... What do you mean, we can't take it home?

My other obsession besides cars is airplanes. Can you tell?
