Sawyer 2.0

Sawyer turned 2 today.

He woke up this morning after spending his first night sleeping in a big-boy bed (set up by Becky).

Then he went to school and had a party (with cupcakes made by me).

Happy birthday, Sawyer!

Clemyjontri Park

Last weekend, I took Sawyer to Clemyjontri Park, which is an enormous playground not far from our house. The majority of the playground equipment is built to accommodates children with disabilities, but the park is intended for use by all kids.

One of the activities is a large labyrinth -- here's a video of Sawyer working his way through it.

Music: Animal Collective

Ukulele recommendation

Since I know my sister's family might be in the market for new ukuleles, I thought now would be a good time to endorse Flea and Fluke ukuleles.

We have one, and it plays great (as good as the one that cost me twice as much).

They come in fun colors, and because they're made of plastic, they're durable enough to stand up to an occasional horsey ride.
