somebody turned two this week!

That's right people. Look out! I am TWO!!!!!

First we went out to Nynn and Fishpa's hotel and swam in their pool.

After that we went home for a nap. And then it was time for presents and cake.

I swear I had good intentions of keeping this very "low key" with only a few presents... but little by little they accumulated from friends, rellies and even Woof got Cy a book on puppies!

Cy enjoyed looking at all the labels and colors. This year though there was no messing around. No one had to tell him a thing. One by one he grabbed each bright box, brought it over to his little table and tore it to shreds. He played with each new thing for about 30 seconds before going over and getting a new box.

His new "Bug Expert" tee shirt from Nynn and Fishpa. Loves it.

And, of course, the part he had been waiting for!!! CAKE!!

Testing out his new hockey stick and puck. Hard foam. Brilliant! He loves it! Calls it "hock"

This is where we put Cy when he is naughty or when we are tired.

This was a week ago at the May Day festival at Powderhorn Park. There are belly dancers on stage behind Cy. The May Day festival is soooo goofy. Attracts "all sorts" as my dad would say.
A cool little trio on a trailer.

Just some people in top hats and petticoats. Near them was a circle of hippies smoking some funny smelling stuff! And behind them were some jugglers, a clown... the list of oddities goes on forever! Which, of course, is why we LOVE it. Wish it happened every weekend! Oh yes. This will also be the forever remembered as the site of Cy's first corndog which he ate in it's entirety ALMOST as fast as his dad ate his giant turkey leg.

Last day of music class :( So sad. We love that class! We've been going with the same kids since they were only a few months old. Cy couldn't even sit up when we started this class. It's done for the summer. Cy is right next to teacher Kathy behind the girl in pink. We already have playdates set with some of his friends for the summer...

And I just want to say that I'm sorry I did not uphold my promise of posting at least once a week. I will try to do so in the future. I have to say though (in my defense) that we cancelled our high speed internet and now we just get sketchy City of Minneapolis WiFi which makes it take like 10000 hours to upload a picture... so it's totally discouraging. However, as soon as we sell this money-pit, er I mean condo, we will be back to the wonderful world of high speed. Until then... do me a favor and keep your fingers crossed that we move this joint!
