Birthday Weekend with Riri and Pop

We loved having Riri and Pop visit for the weekend.  B Man kept saying all weekend, “I want Riri, I want Pop.” We had a great time hanging out at the house, taking B man and Chaz to the zoo, and going out to eat.  Here are a few pictures to recap:

Snuggling with Pop:

These might be my favorite pictures ever.  We went out to eat at this restaurant right on the intracoastal waterway, and Bradford and Andy stopped for a second to look at the boats.  These 2 guys are the best:

Bradford had a great birthday!

Admiring birthday decorations put up by Dad.  B Man’s reaction… “Wow!”:

Morning birthday present: New flash cards!  B Man is so cute and gets really excited about learning numbers and letters.  Chaz got in on some early learning too:

B Man had a great time at the park eating cupcakes with some friends:

Birthday celebration:

Happy Birthday Bradford!

I can’t believe this boy is already 2!  We’ve had a great day celebrating B Man so far, and I think he is relishing the excitement surrounding his birthday, or his “baconed” as he has been calling it.  B Man is so full of life every day, and lives with so much passion, excitement, and speed that it is truly difficult to keep up with him.  Sometimes, you just need to sit back, observe, and laugh at what a funny child he truly is.  He seriously makes us laugh every day, and is such a delight.

Some of B man’s current favorite things are of course, blueberries, tie shirts, Elmo, slides (especially big ones he can conquer), his cousins, friends, and running “fast” outside.  If you ask him who is best friend is, he most often says “Daddy.”  He is talking a ton, and has mastered the sentence, “I want some,” which is quite hilarious depending on what he is asking for.  He is creative, funny, musical, loud, outgoing, and always seems to be the life of the party around here.  It is a blast hanging out with him, and we are just so thankful for his happy, healthy 2 years of life.  So, Happy Birthday to our growing B man.  Here are a few current favorite pics:
