You see us Cooks like to celebrate. Anything. Even if its a day that Boston turns 2 1/2. Half birthdays are special to us. Not sure why exactly, but they are. We are those parents. We own it. :)
So when Boston turned 2.5 as we like to call it.....we headed out to do something special. Jer even marks it on his work calendar weeellll in advance so as to make sure he takes that day off and nothing interferes with it like a deposition or hearing being scheduled that day.
Our first plan was to go back to the zoo like we did last year when he turned 18 months. But mother nature had different plans. We needed something indoors. But first....
Let's talk about what we did before we left the house. Did our usual, got Boston out of bed, changed his diaper and went downstairs to have breakfast.
Daddy was made him/us some pancakes and bacon. Carbs and fat just what we like.
For Easter, one gift from us (really me since Jer thinks its weird since he's a boy) was a push broom! He loves getting mine out and using it. So when I saw a kid broom at Target it jumped right into my cart.
After a little broom action we all got ready and headed out to our indoor destination.
Fort Worth Stockyards.
This was one of his favorite things to do while there. Rolling a lego car down the slides.
While we waited to be seated, we told him to wait in line and to stand on the feet that were on the floor. And he did. Very patiently.
If there's one thing to know about us Cooks it's that we never carry cash. So we headed down the way to an ATM so we could ride the train.
And some butterfly catching.
