Even with a temperature of 101, this kid had a great attitude and a happy birthday! We went to the pet store in the morning to pick out our first pet -- a blue betta fish. The kids are loving having a pet fish, and Bria claims she's ready for a cat now (we'll see what Mike has to say about that!). We had a basketball theme since Isaac LOVES basketball. It was a riot! We played balloon basketball and some other simple games that were in line with a 2-year-old attention span. It was pretty funny trying to play a little balloon baseball, though, since the kids really weren't grasping the "bases" idea. They basically were running wherever they wanted to run...but it made it even more fun, really.
We had pizza and "basketballs"(oranges) for dinner, then a basketball cake. But Isaac was wiped out by 7pm, so we had to work fast to get him to open a couple presents before he passed out. Overall, it was a wonderful day! Grandma and Grandpa Omer sent a really neat turtle puppet, and Grandma and Grandpa Dean helped buy the fish and fishbowl and sent a card. Daddy bought him a little Lightning McQueen desk, and Bria gave him a bunch of construction paper. Overall, it was a really fun and special day. We sure love our spunky lil' Isaac!
