Bikes and Rocket Ships

Just the life of your average 2 year old boy - bikes and rocket ships! 

Last Saturday we had the honor of attending Cayle's 2nd birthday party! It was such a fun idea and Cayle's parents did a great job with it. It was a bike theme...since Cayle is a mini pro on his Strider. They made all of the kids name plates for their bikes, we had wheel-shaped mac 'n cheese, got to decorate the kids bikes for a bike parade, and even took home a bike iron-on to make our own bike t-shirt! What a blast! I told Cayle's dad that he should have been recording for a Strider Bike commercial. The yucky weather didn't hold the kids back a bit. Thanks for letting us be a part of it! 

Today we finally made our second "cardboard creation" out of our stroller box. It had been sitting on the porch just waiting for a rainy day to cut that thing into pieces! The day came today and it became a rocket ship! The NASA Shuttle Truman (after the tiger on Mack's hoddie) was quite a success I think! We practiced our crafty skills and then watched some videos of real space shuttles taking off. We will have to think of new places the shuttle can take us tomorrow! I love saving old boxes!
