Over the weekend we went to a friend's second birthday party. The party was a princess and bounce house party, which are two things that I knew Mad would love. She had so much fun splashing in the pools and jumping in the bounce house. As I was getting these pictures ready to post, she kept insisting, "more bounce!" Now that she knows what a bounce house is, I'm already anticipating the tantrum at our next trip to the park on a weekend (where there are guaranteed to be no less than two bounce houses, and three birthday parties).
Look, we finally got her into a swimsuit other than the Elmo one!
The birthday girl, Amanda
I like the way the netting on the bounce house frames some of these pictures.
Ryan and I may have had more fun than the girls did playing in the bounce house.
The next day. Notice the green stains on her shirt, that's from a princess stamp that came in a gift bag. The stamp was a big hit. So big that it's all over her clothes and the car seat.
Yesterday after Mad and I took a walk around our block looking for kitty cats, we found two baby birds on the driveway. One was dead, and this one was barely alive. I don't know where they came from, I didn't see a nest anywhere nearby. I don't want to take care of a baby bird. I don't want to feed it every twenty minutes from sunrise to sunset, but I couldn't just leave it there to die. We made a nest in a box and I've been feeding it an egg yolk mixture. I'm very surprised that it survived the night. He still doesn't look very good, but amazingly, still alive.
I found a use for a syringe left over from Mad's medicine. I knew I kept it for a reason.
UPDATE: Bird died shortly after I posted this.
