Sweet New Rides

As Liam starts to truly walk and become foot-mobile, it’s a pair wheeled vehicles that have piqued the one-year-old’s interest.

The Little Tikes Cozy Coupe and the Little Tikes Trike have become new favorites.

We don’t have any room to park these contraptions but we knew that we may run into that issue when we purchased the place. I mean, parents who continue to have kids when living in small spaces should be reprimanded.

It was quite fun for Liam to share his birthday with his family, especially cousins Tess and Owen. It will be fun to watch these nerds (and future cousins) grow up together. We want to thank all of our friends and family for their generous gifting to Liam. He’s a lucky kid.

All of the gifts were great but it was his mom’s baking that makes the boys in the family really excited. Check out Liam’s destruction of his birthday cake!

Mmmm, cake.

In fact, prior to composing this post I downed extra homemade frosting Molly threw together for the cake and cupcakes.

BIG WEEKEND: In addition to Mother’s Day, it’s a busy weekend for me this weekend. I’ll be announcing the Wisconsin Marathon Saturday morning followed by a three-game UIC baseball series with #9 Georgia Tech at The Mill.

SulliMom Joins Thirtysomething

Happy Birthday to SulliMom. It’s the little 3-0 today.

We’ve had a nice day.

One thing I remember being really cool one month ago on my birthday was receiving an extra card. It was from my son. Now, just because his mother purchased, wrote and delivered didn’t make that any less special. I hope Liam’s card to SulliMom was just as great.

Also great today:

The surprise appearance by Molly I’m Not Married To and her husband Tequila Tim. Despite it not being my birthday they came all the way from the ‘burbs to deliver two of my favorite things: cake (from Lovely) and tequila (from Mexico). Both of which I consumed. In moderation.

SulliParents are lucky to have great friends. If you’d like to sign up to be our friend, tequila will almost automatically get you in the door. Thanks Erwin duo.
