Happy Birthday Liam!
Yesterday, Liam turned ONE! Unfortunately, I was not able to spend his birthday with him…but I was able to spend the afternoon at Pullen Park with him and his family on Sunday. When I first arrived, Liam was sound asleep. I’ve been around Liam quite a bit over the past few months, so I wasn’t too concerned – they tend to last about 15-20 minutes. This time, his father wasn’t so sure…apparently Liam was in the midst of a growth spurt. No worries – it gave me and his mother, Anna, a chance to register for Pullen Park’s “Winter Wonderland” or whatever they call it. When we got done, he wasn’t quite awake but he was close…so we gathered our things and found a nice grassy knoll. As you can tell by the photos, we had quite a good time. First off, Liam’s dad turned his military trunk into a toy box. It seemed only fitting to take photos of the whole family with it. We also gave Liam a chance to show off his newly found walking skills. Luckily, he’s not so fast yet that I can’t keep up with him…unlike some of my slightly older clients that make me chase them around. After leaving our grassy knoll, we spent some time by the red caboose that they have on display…and the swing sets. He really loved swinging – but who doesn’t?! Finally, we took a ride on the choo choo train. Those trains are NOT made for an entire family to sit in one seat, but we worked it out. I didn’t include it here, but at the end of our time together, we ran into a man with a parrot. How random right? All in all, it was a fantastic day and I’m so glad I got to celebrate with this sweet family. Happy Birthday Liam!
