Little Ro’ Turns 2!

Posted in Little Ro' at 8:30 pm by chasingtoddlermom

Today is Little Ro’s 2nd birthday! To celebrate we went to the zoo, just as we did on his 1st birthday. He had a ball! He walked pretty much the entire time, so he should be good and tired this afternoon. His favorite exhibits were the elephants and Asian Highlands–and the construction workers with their big tractors. Yes, you read that right. Hogle Zoo is doing major construction, adding some interesting new exhibits.
Now he’s laying in his bed calling out “fries, fries…” which is probably a fairly accurate representation of my parenting skills. Oh well.

We celebrated his birthday on Saturday with a train party. All things trains–specifically Thomas! It was a really fun party for the adults and kids. It was freezing and pouring rain, but we grilled burgers, brats, and hot dogs. I made these yummy twice-baked potatoes (I’ll post the recipe). They were a huge hit! I’ve decided that I need to have more parties, especially in light of football season. It’s just an excuse to make good food and hang out with family and friends. And did I mention eat?

I ordered what turned out to be the world’s largest cake from Dick’s market. It was SO cute! Complete with a little Thomas that drove around a track on top! Cake
The kids loved the pinata. Little Ro’ was so excited that he wouldn’t actually hit it, but we managed to get it open anyway.

Little Ro’ received so many darling gifts, it’s definitely time for a toy clean-up around our house! We’re being over-taken! But I have to give a shout-out to 2 particular gifts. First, my mom managed to find this cash register at Toys R Us. It’s the exact same cash register I had as a child! It’s a HUGE hit! I highly recommend it. Also, Little Ro’ has a little-known obsession with sprinklers. It doesn’t matter if they’re on or off, he just loves sprinklers. I’m afraid we might have a future landscaper on our hands. So, his Gpa “B” made him this:
CSI–complete with sprinkler head! I’m afraid to say he’s totally obsessed. Sigh. If only I could really understand the 2-year-old mind.
