Fiesta count down

X-man's first birthday party is 2 weeks away and I am both sad, excited, proud and just flabbergasted that my little man is turning 1! I really can't believe how fast this year has gone. It's been so amazing, I cannot believe that soon I will be back to work and unable to spend every day with him watching as he does brand new things and catching them the first time he does them. Anyway, I will not dwell on that, I must focus on the celebration!
We are having a medium group of family and friends coming over to celebrate at his fiesta's. I will post little sneak peeks as we approach the date and then a thorough view of how it went down, post clean-up!

Tortoise with artificial leg

How cute is this guy? I love turtles and tortoises, so couldn't help posting this picture. His leg was damaged so doctors at Washington State University attached the wheel with an epoxy and he is like new!

The water dilemma

The heat is on over here and we are melting. I've discovered that X-man doesn't like splash pads, you know where they have cool sprinkler-like systems in different shapes and sizes with water spurting out everywhere. The water is freezing at all these places and I don't enjoy that myself considering I have to go in the water with him! However, it works out because he'd rather be in the 
 wading pool. Those are still cold, but bearable since the water is pretty low so it's not as cool. I get to refresh my feet and it cools me down for a bit. The one we went to was completely empty today, yet there were 2 lifeguards. Anyway, he didn't last very long since he hadn't had an afternoon nap, so after about 20 minutes he was done.
