Celebrating Adam's Big Day

We went to see Trouble at Haunted Mountain at the Great AZ Puppet Theatre. The boys were captivated. But when the puppeteers brought out the puppets after the show, Adam didn't want to get too close.

We stopped at the Storytelling Festival and relaxed in the grass as we listened to some great stories.

At home we presented our own puppet shows: The Tiger, the Mouse, and the Alligator (using Dallin's school-made puppets), Dave the Brave (presented by Caleb), and Murky Monster Gets a Scare.

Adam couldn't get enough of Mitch's two bear puppets, who were the emcees of our production. In between shows we played games that went along with the theme of each show.

Adam blew out the candles, and we ate balloon cupcakes and ice cream. Oh, and we taught Adam that instead of saying, "Fine," when someone asks how old he is, he can hold up two fingers and say, "Two." We're still working on that.

And Caleb and Dallin were very helpful in presenting Adam's presents, as well as opening them.

Fun day. Sweet boy. We love Adam.

What a cute kissing pic! I will have to do that with my kids. The excursion to the puppet show looks like a lot of fun. Do they hold that often?

Happy Late Birthday Adam. Yeah! the terrible two. I am determined that Talita won't be terrible when she turns two and I hope Adam won't be too much trouble either.
