Just after his birthday in June, we brought him to his first ever play, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and he loved it. We were worried that he might not sit still or wouldn't pay attention. But as soon as the curtain went up, he was hooked. It helped that the main character was dressed as a mouse, but he had a great time.
We've also gone to a few birthday parties and the 4th of July Fireworks Show. We've gotten to check out some of the fun things in Baton Rouge that we hadn't experienced before. One of those is Trace's new favorite place: the Splash Park in Gonzales.
We went a few weeks ago with one of Trace's friends from Day Care, Addy. Trace wasn't sure about the fountains at first, but after a little while, he was running through them and getting soaked. Mimi and Pop even met up with us that day since they were coming to spend the weekend with us. Trace has gone again with Ashley and his Mae Mae, and now when we ask him where he wants to go, he says Splash Park.
Trace and Ashley also spent a day with our friends Sharee and Olivia, and they went eat pizza and to a play land. (BTW, pizza may be Trace's new favorite food, along with meatballs. I think he could eat them everyday).
For his birthday, Mimi and Pop got him a Powerwheels F150 truck. One night, Trace and I put it together and I let him test it out on our living room floor. I'm not sure if the TV stand could take much more of this, but Trace sure did enjoy it. He needs to work on using the steering wheel, but he has pressing the pedal down.
Last weekend, Trace got to hang out with Mimi and Pop and Maw, Pap, Rhi Rhi, Nonk Eli, Kassie and Cousin Morgan in Grand Isle. We swam, ate crabs and went ride in Pap's boat ... and Trace got to take a picture with Pap and a Red Snapper that was bigger than him.
To top off an awesome month, Trace's Nanny Mikelle and Denis brought him to Chuck E. Cheese the other night. Since Mommy and Daddy hadn't gone yet either, they let us tag along.
