We had a great weekend! Saturday the kids sold some stuff at a neighbor's yardsale and, of course, spent as much as they made but had a lot of fun doing it. The girls got some new dressup clothes and barbies, and Sam got a really cool crane set that he's been playing with nonstop. Saturday afternoon Dh and I got woodchips spread all under the climber, and it looks really terrific. That night we had a campfire and roasted marshmellows; our neighbors joined us and we had a really fun time and finished up just before the rain hit.
Today is Sam's 4th birthday, though his party isn't till Wednesday. He played on the climber some this morning then came in and opened his presents. He loved everything he got. I picked up a DVD set of the 1st and 2nd season of Scooby-Doo for my mom to give him, and it's a huge hit. The kids have been watching a Scooby-Doo marathon all evening.
This afternoon we went up to Port Discovery in Baltimore today for his birthday where we had lots of fun. He climbed on the inside climber nonstop for about an hour and a half! Afterwards we went to Pizzeria Uno in the Inner Harbor for an early dinner. We watched all the peddle boats out in the harbor and saw two of the huge schooner ships go by. After dinner, the wait staff came and sang Happy Birthday to Sam, which he thought was the greatest thing in the world! All in all, he was a very happy boy today. He fell asleep on the ride home and woke up a bit cranky when we got home. But we just popped in the Scooby DVD's, and he just settled in.
