We had so much fun larking about Heritage Park celebrating with the little boys
Often we run out of time to do the train ride, so this time we started with it.
Then we popped to the old fort and Indian village.
Then we went to the rides.
We all rode the carousel together
So there you have it, the highlights of our day.

What fun we've had today.
Last Sat we went to Heritage park and did lots of train things (I will blog those pics soon too but not tonight as I'm too tired.....)
So today was about their other great love, FOOD.
It started with pressies though, as all good birthdays should.
We went to Cora's a breakfast restaurant which is scrummy. The plates are huge, our 4 share one, and then munch on a bit of the adult ones.
Egg train sandwiches with veg cargo.
They are happily tucked up fast asleep which is where their tired Mummy is headed too. Hosea lay in his bed holding a new train saying happy over and over.
Heidi has her first field trip tomorrow so that should be fun too. Busy days.
Then we blinked and you were one.
And then we chased, wiped, trained, chased some more, played, read, and chased after even more and today you turn two.
There was no way that we could have imagined a year so full as last year. But the one thing that you have brought that weighs out all the busyness and tiredness is much joy. You've taught your Mama to laugh in chaos, to pray when tired and to say thank you when offered help. I marvel at the gift you are to us, and thank God for you.
The things you love right now are trains and eating and getting on you gogo's to be outside and running at full speed. You make animal noises, roar at people and try to bite their toes and have trouble figuring out your name from your brothers. Your sisters adore you and you them. You want so much to hold baby, but struggle son hard to be gentle, You are naughty, but often in such cute ways that we have to back away to laugh before we help you learn what is right. Having your best friend to get into things with must be so fun.
Happy second birthday boys.

There's a couple of reasons that these are supposed to be made with raisins not choc chips.
Please no comments on my poor wreaking of welsh cakes. I wouldn't do it if I had raisins in the house, but we needed a little yummy something to fill our hungry belly's and we thought we'd try it.
A fun activity on a hot day. She made it all pretty much herself and stored the goodies in the shade of a tree.
Her customers were all pleased they'd stopped by I'm sure.
