Monster turns 4! part 3

The final few birthday photos!

Monster has been playing with all of his birthday toys since his birthday.

He’s been exploring what the different apparatus in his science set does. He also wears his Jake costume whenever it’s not being washed! His final birthday present arrived – Woody! And we took his new bike to the park to practise pedalling.

He needs a bit more practise but he’s getting there 🙂

Birthday day!

Monster was very enthusiastic about opening his presents! He was adamant that he wear his Jake and the Neverland Pirates costume all day! We took the bus to playgroup. Monster likes to pose for the camera! We had birthday cake for morning tea – even with a candle. We sung happy birthday. He thought the cake was yum! We went from playgroup, to soft play, then into town to collect a birthday present.

It was a very tiring day! But a short nap perked him up for more playing with his birthday toys. We had birthday tea at home. He said it was the “best birthday ever!” 🙂

This month was Monster’s 4th birthday!

As his actual birthday was on a Monday, we went for his birthday outing on the Sunday.

He set off for the station with his camera. He took lots of his own photos of everything! We went to his favourite place for lunch – Wagamamas! He had chicken and rice and ice cream – yum! He got to choose where we went for the day. He chose the … (I don’t have any photos of inside the museum so the train station name sign will have to do!)

He particularly wanted to see the dinosaur skeletons, and was fascinated by all the skeletons they had on display in general.

When we got home he helped to make the cakes. He even did the washing up (which he thought was very exciting!) Once he was in bed we set up ready for the birthday morning 🙂

Christmas 2012

Father Christmas visited on Christmas Eve and brought all the presents everyone had sent him. He enjoyed his biscuits and green squash (which Monster chose for him) and the reindeer chomped on their carrot:Father Christmas has been In the morning we came down and monster was a little overwhelmed. He was very excited to see all the presents:Overwhelmed This was the first year he’s been able to open presents properly by himself, which he really enjoyed doing:Opening presents We played the games, did building with Duplo, and Monster insisted that we all dress up in his new dressing up outfits too:Dressing-up It rained all day, and after a play with all his presents Monster wanted to go out in the rain with his umbrella:Playing in the rain There was lots of puddle jumping until his boots were completely full up with water:Puddle jumping

We had a good Christmas 🙂

3rd Birthday Celebrations!

Monster turned 3 on Sunday!

He requested a green dragon cake with red fire coming out of it’s mouth.

We set out all his presents, put bits together and put up the banner ready for the morning.

We started the day singing Happy Birthday and blowing out the candles.

If you can’t have cake for breakfast on your birthday, when can you?

We started our journey into the city by train, but due to trackwork ended up on the rail replacement coach. Monster chose to sit on the very back row!

We went bowling in Darling Harbour. He sat very patiently waiting for his turn.

He was very excited when it was his turn (and also liked that the big TV screens were tuned to Cartoon Network which was showing a Lego show)!

We all clapped whenever the ball knocked some pins down.

After lunch we went to Wildlife Sydney. Monster took his new camera to take photos too.

We were lucky as the wombat is not usually out and about when we visit.

We saw the new echidna exhibit.

There were baby emus.

Lots of wallabies had had joeys.

Even the crocodile was out of the water for us to have a look at.

We had a really good day 🙂
