Four Years Goes Fast

Antonio turned four on September 19th. It was a pleasant 80+ day in Burbank so what better way to celebrate than a party in the park, with water balloons of course!

Grandma and Grandpa were here for the fun and got a little wet too!

Antonio did the most throwing, Eric (his friend and therapist) got the most wet, and mommy had the most bounces off her belly.
There were over 100 balloons and they went quick!
And of course then it was time for CAKE! And singing!

"I'm going to see what the blue one tastes like..."Then of course, after eating cake at 11am, the birthday boy has to throw up at the table and then take a little quiet time.

Then its time for presents!
Mamma and Bonk gave him a game called "rock, paper, scissors" - it is a card game and he took it literally and went and got a rock, paper and scissors....

And most exciting to mommy and daddy was sharing with Antonio all about soon to be arriving baby brother who Antonio is now very excited about and loves already.

For a little guy turning four it was a great party and a great day. The present opening lasted till the next weekend :)

Antonio had his first trip to Disneyland on the last day he was 3.
The jury is still out if he liked the Teacups or not.

Yes, it was his favorite ride!

It was a big day - Grandma and Grandpa were visiting and we had big plans! He was so excited, overwhelmed, surprised and more and a lot of the day was spend like this - in a stroller partially covering his eyes. Disneyland is join-attention heaven and over stimulation heaven all in one.

The number one thing on Antonio's list was meet Mickey! He was SO excited to meet Mickey. After this the ice was broken and he was ready.
So we hopped on a Yellow Submarine and went to look for Nemo! This is a great ride for anyone, even pregnant people and grandparents.Then we had to hit the Playhouse Disney stage show which Jeff calls what Antonio were to see if he took is a lot of cool for a kid. Mickey, Handy Manny and Pooh all in one show! After that it was time to find more characters.

Like Eeyore - Antonio was very concerned that he still had a tail...thankfully he did.
And of course Tigger, who he couldn't wait to tell he loved him!

Since Grandma and Grandpa came we actually go a picture of the three of us with Pluto! So fun to meet Pluto.
At the end of a very long day, he was still smiling and talked ALL the way home with enthusiasm. He was that commercial "I'm too excited to sleep" day!
