Wow, what a whirlwind of a perfect week! Started with the Moncton zoo last Monday and ending with Kieran's Birthday Party at the Cherry Brook zoo on Sunday.
Wednesday we made Banana Chocolate chip muffins together, he was so proud of himself, couldn't wait to tell everyone that he had made them. He would correct people too if they didn't give him any credit.
Thursday Kieran gave himself the title of "Superman Awesome" as he ran around the house with jumps, turns, and his best martial arts moves.
Friday was his birthday and he was happy all day long, and I met his biggest birthday wish...which was to have a blue candle on his cake. Although his party was not until Sunday we picked out a small DQ cake together which had a Paw Patrol character on it, he couldn't wait for his Auntie Megan and Uncle Andrew to come over and share it with him.
Saturday we spent they day at a beautiful cottage in Dipper Harbour-with Kieran's Great Aunt and Uncle. We were surrounded by the Bay, and spent the whole day on the beach. Kieran's Great Aunt got him a beautiful gift of a see through bucket to collect sand, seashells, urchins, sea glass, and anything else he could find, along with 2 beautiful ocean themed books, and a couple other goodies too. At first I don't know if he understood the bucket, but by the end of the day it was almost full. Sunday morning at breakfast it was on the table and he was going through all the things he had collected. So much Fun...he also picked and ate a bunch of raspberries, while making sure we kept looking.
Sunday, Birthday Party Day, couldn't have asked for a better day. Kieran. after having slept over 12 hours due to the previous days' outdoor adventure, was wide eyed and ready to go, he could not wait to see his friends and family to party at the zoo. He was holding hands, jumping, running, playing, just completely enjoying himself and we learned lots about the animals at our zoo (Cherry Brook Zoo). I have to say if anyone in the area is looking fro somewhere to have their child's party, they were amazing. We got a one hour tour of the zoo, and then an hour at the canteen where they served hot-dogs, chips, and cake...homemade I might add and delicious!! We brought a couple extra things like a veggie, fruit, tray but the zoo provided the rest, I thought it was great. Kieran had a wonderful time and I think the other kids did too and that is all that matters to me. I have a happy little boy who is deeply loved by many, and we are so grateful.
This weeks photo comes from my new journal, planner which I think sums up the feel of the end of our week. I love the photo on the bottom right corner of Kieran and his friends holding hands at the zoo.
