A Day of Ez's Favorite Things


I've already talked about Ez's birthday party, which was the Saturday before his birthday, but on his actual birthday we decided to go a simpler route and spend the whole day just the three of us doing his favorite things. 

We started off with smoothies at the mall followed by some time running around the mall play area. Ez was totally in his element and by the time we left he was a pro at climbing some of the trickier structures. I swear, sometimes it's like he's literally growing right before our eyes. While we were at the mall we also visited the motorcycle at the Kiehls store, let Ez steal a rock from one of the planters (he's obsessed!), and stopped by the Disney store where Ez got to pick a birthday present (he chose Sheriff from Cars). 

For lunch Ez had a few classic kid faves: grilled cheese, fruit, and, most importantly, a birthday sundae from Cheesecake Factory. After all that running around I'd say that definitely hit the spot. 

Post-nap it was time for more of Ez's favorites, this time at the park. On the agenda: swings, stick collecting, tree climbing, and...bubbles! I love how excited he gets about exploring nature and running around outside. 

We capped the whole evening off with cupcakes and Mater's Tall Tales. To say Ez had a blast would be an understatement. He's always happiest when all three of us are together, and then to have a whole day of our undivided attention plus activities catered just to him? Pure heaven. 

I hope turning 2 was just as special to you as it was to your Daddy and me, Ez! We love you!

  4. Turning two is pretty great stuff! For some reason this made me want pineapple. Did you mention pineapple? I don't think so. subliminal perhaps? Pineapple does sound good though. And grilled cheese =) I know you mentioned that one! A day with mom and dad both is Aria's fave too.

  7. He's such a cute boy. Looks like you had a great birthday!
    My daughter just turned 2 this April. I agree, it is so fun to watch how excited they get about exploring all the things around them. We don't pay attention to these things, but for kids everything is new and everything matters. I love to watch these moments how they explore the world.
