Today was Steven's 38th birthday and Adam was sooo excited about it! He wished Steven a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DADDY!!!!" every time he saw him and gave him huge hugs all day. He even helped decorate his birthday cake making "flowers" with red icing. When it was time to sing "happy birthday" and cut the cake Adam said "make a wish, daddy" and "blow out your candles"... sooo cute! Of course, Adam was the one blowing out the candles... and they were "trick candles" so he was blowing for a looong time!

Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you SOOO Much!

Wor.ld Cup Fun

We celebrated the Wor.ld Cup Soccer Tournament(?) in style today. Adam started his soccer classes that were, thankfully, indoors (since it was 95 degrees outside today)! He seemed to enjoy the class and learned to dribble the ball. The teacher was really sweet and there were only 4 kids in the class. I think that Adam would just be happy to run around a gym while kicking a soccer ball... but he seemed to like the structure of the class. Afterwards Steven and Adam played themselves for about 30 minutes... I think that was their favorite part!

After Adam's 20 minute nap(!), we went over to Michelle & Paul's house for a Wor.ld Cup BBQ which was great fun! I just love my girlfriends and their kids... it's always a treat to get together, esp. with the families. Adam hadn't seen his friends Tomas, Benjamin, Nathan, Addie & Asha in a few months so he had a great time "catching up" with them. =)
These 3 Amigos (Tomas, Adam & Benjamin) were pretty inseparable

"exercising together"

Sno-Cones! =)

Adam loved playing in this cool sandbox!

All in all, a great day. Even with USA's soccer loss to Ghana! As you can see, Adam is still in the spirit!

our little performer

Adam is definitely a little ham. Even though he does have some moments of shyness, put some music on and he is usually on the floor, bouncing away. He recently had two opportunities to show off his dancing skills. The first time was at a neighborhood fair where he performed with Ms. Nicole a Kinderda.nce routine. It was over 90 degrees outside but he did great! Most of the other kids were older but he kept right up:

Then, on Friday, his class (Ms. Lucette's class at Montessori) had a "spring musical" that Adam sang in. Since it was the last day of school (at the school I work at) I wasn't allowed to take leave to watch him. Fortunately, Steven was there and took a few pics. You'll notice Little Love in the back row, on the far left (yes, he finally got a haircut!):

Playing outside after the musical:

School's (finally) out for summer for me, too! Hooray! I can finally catch up on my blogging now! I'm hoping to blog 2-3 times a week this summer... LOT of stuff to post... including photos from Cousin Blake's 1st Birthday Party which was on Sunday. Can't believe he's one -- he's such a cutie! Signing off for now, will be back with another post by the end of the week! =)

Wordless Wednesday -- Pete the Pony!

We went to the neighborhood carnival on Friday night (so fun!) and Adam had his first pony ride! Of course, he loved it. Meet Pete the Pony!

P.S. My apologies for my lack of blog posts. It's the end of the school year so I've been busier than usual. LOTS of posts to come later this month!!! =)
