Jack Aidan's Birthday in the Park

Our Adventure Story
Yesterday Jack and I rode with our favorite little family to Burke Lake Park
to meet up with Jeanine and Bryan in Mickey Mouse ears

and Jeanine's roomie, Maria, also in Mickey Mouse ears

to have a Thomas the Train Birthday Party for little Jack.
It was a brunch party so there were Manhattan bagels with cream cheese, cold fresh shrimp with dip, a fruit pizza and of course this cute Thomas the Train cake.

So what did little Jack Aidan promptly do?
He fell off this picnic table, bumped his head on the floor and started crying!
But lots of family hugs and kisses got him back in the game,
especially after some snuggle time with Mommy.

Then it was time to check out that cake with Daddy

and put your hand in the icing while trying to grab that little blue train.

Aunt Gigi (Jeanine) was recording all this with her Canon Sure Shot.

And so was Mommy with her Canon Sure Shot.
Sidenote: I took these pics with my little old cheap Sony camera.

Now Jack Aidan can be the repairman on a Thomas Train with all his new work tools.
Do as Sarah Palin says Jack: "Drill, drill, drill!"

And when little Jack gets tired of drilling he can run to the dining car on the Thomas train and
use his barbecue grill to make shish-ka-bobs for the passengers.
(Haven't toys come along way. On the farm I had to pretend that some left over barn roof shingles and bathroom ceramic tiles were my plates and cooking gear.)
Then it was time to get in the very long line to ride the train at Burke Lake Park.
The best part of the ride was chugging alongside the lake and screaming while going thru the dark, dark tunnel. OoooooooooooWeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
When we debarked the grey haired train conducter gave
Jack a Hi-Five.

Then it was time for Jack and the gang to ride the old carousel while Daddy and Bryan did some shooting with the Canon Sure Shots. Smile this time you come around. Understand?

Grandpa brought two blue frisbees along to the park for Terry and Bryan to be boys.It was fun throwing the frisbees in the shade of the tall trees.

Here Terry is using a fast curve throw in hopes that Bryan will miss the catch.

But somehow our little man ends up with both blue frisbees.
Bryan says "Ok, kid, give one up please."
On the ride home for a nap Jack Aidan fell asleep in the car and didn't even wake up when Mommy picked him up and took him in to his little bed.
That was a lot of birthday party for a little two year old.
