A birthday party
After hunting eggs we all went home to rest before heading out to a birthday party.
Several months ago when my parents were at our house for the day, Brenden begged to go for a walk so my Dad took him. He ended up meeting our next door neighbors that we had not yet been successful in making friends with. Turns out they have a little boy that just turned 2 and a little girl that is 7 months old. Brenden promptly took to the little boys toys. He even invited himself in to borrow one he could see from the window. Since then we’ve had a few occassions where the boys have seen each other outside and played together for a little bit. And the last time we saw him Brenden got really excited and started waving to him to come over and play. So we got invited to little Joseph’s 2nd birthday party and were happy to go.
Well, actually Brenden looked forward to it all day but when we actually got there he was a complete grump for the first hour or so. I couldn’t put him down. To be fair there were a lot of things working against him. An emotional Friday (taking my parents to the airport), being sick (got another cold late Friday) a big morning hunting eggs and being woken up from his nap early. But he did finally warm up and then he didn’t want to leave.
It was at Amazing Jakes which is a pizza place with tons and tons of games. Brenden bowled, rode a train and play lots of those silly games where you try to navigate a claw or some other type of object into getting you some loot.
