Happy Birthday my little four year old. I hope you keep us laughing for years and years.
Yesterday daddy took Miles out for a day along with daddy. Miles got to pick what he wanted to do and his first choice was to go to the donut shop. Then they went to the Museum of Flight in Seattle. The Museum of flight is perfect for little kids. There are so many different fun activities for all of them to enjoy. Turns out, they didn’t even do all of it in one day so we have to go back.
Miles loves airplanes. Every time he sees one in the sky he gets excited. We see planes daily in the sky above our house so I hear his excitement every day. I also hear it when they take me to the airport for a blogging trip. There was a time, and I still wonder if he knows now, when he thought I worked at the airport. It seems hard for him to understand that I went somewhere other than the airport every time they dropped me off.
Point is He LOVES planes!
When asked which ones were his favorite, it was really hard for him to decide. But I’m pretty sure he’s in love with The Blue Angels. The middle photo of the next three is a retired blue angel plane.
He loved his experience so much that when he came home he reenacted his experience with LEGOS. He had to build some airplanes (mommy and daddy helped) and then after they were all built he had to put them in a museum. It was just ADORABLE. So here is Milesman’s Lego Museum of Flight.
I just watched my little baby boy turn three years old.
We had quite an “Hopping” day. We didn’t plan it this way but it turned out to be a complete bunny hopping themed day.
We went to the movie screening for Hop! About an Easter Bunny not quite ready to be The Easter Bunny.
The birthday boy made his own Rainbow cake, and if these colors don’t remind you of Easter Egg colors I’m not sure what will
He received a bunny from his grandma, and the bunny’s name was Miles just like him! He’s sleeping with his bunny. He also received a trampoline and a hopper ball. So we’ve been hop hop hoping around here all weekend!
We were delivering cookies to all of the neighbors a week ago and at every house we went to my son said,
I told him that he should be saying, Merry Christmas, so then he would smile and say Merry Christmas, but as soon as we got to the next house it was
Happy Birthday all over again.
He said it with as much enthusiasm as Frosty the Snowman did when they put that magic hat on him. I mean, Miles is after all only 2 (going on 3). We’ve been reading the Christmas Story every night before we go to bed this week and it dawned on me it’s Jesus’ birthday so my son was right all along. Happy Birthday Jesus
This morning when I got up, I said Merry Christmas Eve to my husband and he smiled at me and said,
Merry Christmas from the Bishop Family and We wish Jesus a very Happy Birthday!
The kids and Daddy enjoyed setting up the Hexbug Nano Habitat. We’ve played with other electronic toys before and have found this one even though the pieces are small is much more suited to children than the other. The Zoe and Miles both loved playing with the bugs and Miles took his bug everywhere with him for three days. Yes, in that time we had to replace the battery a few times because he would forget to turn it off. As we were playing the Hexbug Nano bugs my husband noticed that some of them said that they were special or rare. So he went looking on line and found the Hexbug Nano Field Guide.
The habitat was easy enough for Zoe, age 3, to put together and take apart. She actually did most of the construction on the habitat you see pictured above. Everyone that came over for the party was allowed to take home some bugs and extra batteries. We had quite a fun party last week with the little Hexbug Nano bugs. Everyone had a great time. I’ve received comments from all of the moms thanking me for sending home the little creatures!
One Mom Said,
Thank you, thank you, thank you for letting the boys spend some time at your house this morning! They had a great time and love the bugs you sent home with them. They’ve been playing with them all day; it’s been a while since they were all this quiet at one time. 🙂
Louise, thanks so much for the bugs. My kids had SO MUCH FUN playing with them all night!!
And one other mom said,
I’m very impressed with the Hexbugs because they kept my son’s attention for at least 30 minutes. He just sat there and played with the bug watching it go in and out of the habitat.
Every time I try to edit this video my computer crashes so it is a little bit longer than I’m sure any of you other than grandparents like to watch. This video is of the family enjoying the Hexbug Nano for the first time.
We were doing laundry together and he just decided to be one with the laundry. He was having a great time and if I can get a little work done while he’s having fun it’s a match made in heaven.
This is what we did today, we cleaned the house and decorated his room. I’m still not done with his room, it’s probably going to be a work in progress for the next 16 years.
I let him put up some of the pictures himself, and if you know me very well at all it’s really hard for me to let the kids be kids. I’m a work in progress too and I’ll be the first to admit I am not perfect.
The theme of his room is robots.
